Georgia Tech Collaborations

The CEISMC Educational Research and Evaluation Group's Dr. Alemdar and Dr. Newton collaborate closely with Georgia Tech mechanical engineering faculty to investigate students' experiences and learning outcomes associated with various curriculum interventions. Current work focuses on a sustainability-related intervention in a freshman engineering design course. 

Recent work includes:
