Pease join us on Monday, November 28th at 12pm-1pm Pacific for a virtual seminar on the topic of advocating for effective and inclusive change as a graduate student instructor. This event is eligible for the CPET Certificate of Interest.
Professor Cassandra McCall is an Assistant Professor in Engineering Education at the Utah State University. She received her PhD in 2017 from Virginia Tech with her dissertation "Advancing from Outsider to Insider: A Grounded Theory of Professional Identity Negotiation".
Professor McCall describes her research as follows: "The overarching goal of my research is to enhance engineering diversity and inclusion by challenging traditional and normative conceptions of who engineers are and what engineers do. To meet this goal, I combine qualitative research approaches with identity, culture, and critical frameworks to the diverse backgrounds and pathways by which individuals come to know, identify with, and become engineers. Core topics of my research include: identity formation of engineers; disability identity in engineering; hidden or non-apparent identities in engineering; the de-stigmatization of disability in engineering industry and engineering education; and the development of inclusive and accessible teaching practices using Universal Design for Learning principles; and researcher identity and positionality."
We look forward to seeing you virtually!
Kimberly Golubeva, Meredith Hooper, and Emile Oshima
