´╗┐EdPsy581D: School Belonging Cross-Sectional Study of Belonging in Engineering Education: A Work in Progress Denise Wilson (Graduate Student or Professor?) Lisa Hansen, Graduate Research Assistant Department of Electrical Engineering University of Washington

Slide 2

EdPsy581D: School Belonging Research Objective Previous Results Background: Importance of Belonging Methods Belonging Survey Communities Analysis Results Reliability Sense of having a place crosswise over groups Correlation Relationships Summary and Future Work Acknowledgments

Slide 3

Belonging in Engineering Education: Research Objective To dependably assess feeling of having a place in the University of Washington designing group contrasted with similar Research I building groups. Populaces Frontiers in Education, 2005: Engineering Education Conference IEEE Sensors, 2005: Technical Engineering Conference NSF Engineering Research Center Retreat EE331 (UWEE) Microelectronic Circuits Class Communities: Immediate and Home Example: Belonging at IEEE Sensors At the Conference At the Home Institution

Slide 4

Belonging in Engineering Education: Previous Results (UWEE Introductory Class) Students were most undecided about sentiments of disappointment A greater part of understudies communicated sentiments of satisfaction additionally felt exhausted. This disagreement returned in an open-finished question tending to a similar issue: Intrigued and focused on Excited and befuddled Confident and not happy Curious and exhausted

Slide 5

Belonging in Engineering Education: Previous Results (UWEE Introductory Class) Major Negative Feedback: Overwork and Lack of relationship Are common and significant boundaries to satisfaction in the instructive procedure General Observations Students are striking mindful "Help" for individual/proficient development is unavailable because of workload Major Positive Feedback Inherent satisfaction in specialized course content External disappointment is not really disguised General Resentment Things that don't work Lack of utilization and relationship

Slide 6

Belonging in Engineering Education: Background (The Importance of Belonging) What is Belonging? The "capable, central, and to a great degree unavoidable" inspiration of people to satisfy requirements for connection through social bonds (Baumeister & Leary, 1995). Effect of Belonging Elementary School: engagement, impact and positive conduct (Solomon, 1997). Center School: scholarly inspiration and endeavors, review point normal, truancy and lateness (Goodenow, 1993)

Slide 7

Belonging in Engineering Education: Background (The Importance of Belonging) Impact of Belonging High School: understudy scholastic intrigue and accomplishment, non-attendance, and misconduct (Bryk & Driscoll, 1988). Secondary School: 24.2% of secondary school dropouts refer to the absence of having a place as a noteworthy consider their choices to leave school (Center for Educational Statistics, 1993). School: sentiments of being thought about and being dealt with caringly (Cheng, 2004). School: minding relates straightforwardly to the general nature of the organization as 1 of the 6 essential attributes of schools and colleges recognized by Boyer (1990). School: feeling of group is directed by level of extraversion (DeNui, 2003), which makes it harder for self observers to build up a feeling of group at more elevated amount establishments.

Slide 8

Belonging in Engineering Education: Methods Survey dispersed to four distinctive designing groups: Frontiers in Education 2005: prevalently building staff IEEE Sensors 2005: overwhelmingly building graduate understudies NSF Engineering Research Center Retreat: blend of designing graduate and college understudies EE331 Class at University of Washington: dominatingly designing college understudies. Study Composition (23 add up to things) Validated Belonging Items (Anderson-Butcher, 2002) "I feel part of the meeting" "I feel upheld by my area of expertise" Additional things identified with self-sufficiency, ability, having a place "I feel in fact equipped" "I feel socially quiet" "I feel welcome to make inquiries"

Slide 9

Belonging in Engineering Education: Analysis and Results Reliability (Cronbach a ) Dataset 1: FIE 2005 (N = 101) Dataset 2, 5: IEEE Sensors 2005 (N = 29) Dataset 3, 6: ERC Retreat (N = 29) Dataset 4, 7: EE331 (N = 36)

Slide 10

Belonging in Engineering Education: Analysis and Results ANOVA Dataset 1,4: EE331 Dataset 2, 5: IEEE Sensors 2005 Dataset 3, 6: ERC Retreat 2005 F-test likelihood that having a place levels are the same over these populaces = 2 X 10 - 7

Slide 11

Belonging in Engineering Education: Analysis and Results Significant Correlations: FIE 2005 Technical Competence at Conference and Home Institution Socially calm and Welcome to Ask Questions Significant Correlations: EE331 Accepted by Faculty/Accepted by Students Technically Competent/Accepted by Students Ideas are listened to/Accepted by Faculty and Students Comfortable with staff/Part of my Department (IEEE Sensors as well) Faculty and Students believe each other Accepted by Faculty Accepted by Students

Slide 12

Belonging in Engineering Education: Summary Engineering college understudies in electrical building at UW encounter an altogether bring down feeling of having a place than building understudies at different foundations Relationships (acknowledgment and support) by personnel are fundamentally identified with measures of having a place (feeling part of the division) ERC feeling of having a place at home organization not essentially not the same as IEEE Sensors feeling of having a place Future Research Tease out impacts of graduate/undergrad and worldwide/United States home establishments Evaluate affect (on having a place) of intercessions intended to enhance workforce/understudy relationship and satisfaction at UW Investigate wellsprings of workforce imperviousness to delicate aptitude mediation

Slide 13

Belonging in Engineering Education: Acknowledgments Prof. Diane Jones for noting a wide range of inquiries with tolerance Graduate Research Assistant Lisa Hansen for helping with gathering overview information and composing the friend paper My graduate partners (particularly Cathy Bankston) for listening to my eager ramblings. Financing offices for having the future knowledge to bolster this exertion.
