This month, Drs. Jon Leydens and Katie Johnson will be leading a discussion of their article “Measuring changes over time in sociotechnical thinking: A survey validation model for sociotechnical habits of mind” (Leydens, Johnson, Claussen, Blacklock, Moskal, & Cordova, 2018). Questions to consider as you read:
- What are the disconnects between the way we train and educate engineers and expectations of engineers in industry?
- What does contextualization of engineering problems look like in non-design engineering classes?
- How do you (or could you) use open-ended problems (ones in which there is not one right answer) in your courses?
- After reading the article, how might you apply sociotechnical thinking in your own classrooms?
To access the article, go to: https://monolith.asee.org/public/conferences/106/papers/23071/view and click “Download Paper.” It will be most beneficial if you are able to read the article in advance. But if you are not able to read the article beforehand, please still join the discussion if you are able!
