Miller, Roxanne Greitz; Hurlock, Ashley J. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
Non research-intensive institutions of higher education are effective at narrowing STEM gender gaps in major selection and persistence to degree completion, yet the decision to attend such a setting is likely seen as counterintuitive when such institutions typically have lower levels of research, financial resources, and total student enrollments…

Kezar, Adrianna; Gehrke, Sean – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
A community of practice (CoP) is a group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it as they interact regularly. Higher education leaders are attracted to CoPs because they are a peer-based model of learning with colleagues, which works well for professionals such as faculty. These authors identified…

Chou, Karen C.; Moaveni, Saeed; Sapp, James D. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
The integrity of a structural system depends on the strength of materials, shape of the individual member and the elements used to hold the members together. In most undergraduate civil engineering curricula, a structural steel and/or reinforced concrete design course is required. Usually, the main focus of these courses is on member selection…

Savaria, Michael; Monteiro, Kristina – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
Men outnumber women in the enrollment of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) undergraduate majors. Course syllabi are distributed to students during open enrollment and provide key insights into the courses. A critical discourse analysis of introductory engineering syllabi at a 4-year public university revealed limited to no…

Katsioloudis, Petros J. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
Temperature can influence thermal comfort, working performance, and social behavior. In a classroom that is slightly cool, an assumption can be made that learning could be affected in a negative way. Considering this, a quasi-experimental study was done to determine if a significant difference of effective temperature have an effect on students':…

Kashyap, Upasana; Mathew, Santhosh – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
The purpose of this study was to compare students' performances in a freshmen level quantitative reasoning course (QR) under three different instructional models. A cohort of 155 freshmen students was placed in one of the three models: needing a prerequisite course, corequisite (students enroll simultaneously in QR course and a course that…

Bosman, Lisa; Chelberg, Kelli; Winn, Ryan – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
Many barriers exist for American Indian students pursuing STEM degree programs. However, federally recognized Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) are uniquely suited to overcome these barriers because of their shared mission to provide 21st Century educational opportunities for American Indian students. Qualitative and quantitative findings…

Katrevich, Alina V.; Aruguete, Mara S. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
Our study explores the challenges of first-generation students while also examining the factors that predict success in this population. We surveyed undergraduate students to compare the academic and social support needs of first-generation and continuing-generation students. First-generation students showed lower grades and critical-thinking…
