About this item

This volume was inspired by the American Association of Engineering Education Board naming 2014-15 the Year of ACTION on Diversity. Engineering educators describe success stories from around the world that involve combining K-12 preparation, re-engineering the current curriculum, incorporating experiential educational experiences such as study abroad, providing work environments that are more friendly to under-represented workers, and addressing barriers to women and minorities. They cover high impact higher education pedagogical frameworks and practices, micro-community or target approaches to diversifying engineering, and critiques and administrative suggestions to restructure engineering education.
