Wednesday, April 3, 2019

Bridging the research to practice gap is hard work and we are always excited to showcase individuals who are taking that challenge head-on. Dr. Ruth Streveler now hosts a podcast called Engineering Education Research Briefs that “aims to expand the boundaries of engineering education research by exploring new frameworks, new methods, and new findings with the researchers who created them.” One of her recent guests was Dr. James Holly, Jr., who shares his personal journey of pursuing a Ph.D. in engineering education from Purdue University and his choice of research approach and dissertation topic “A Critical Autoethnography of Teaching Engineering to Black Boys as a Black Man”. James talks about how he sought to encourage and challenge Engineering Educators to consider the inequities in K-12 schooling that directly impact aspirations for more racially/ethnically diverse engineering students and professionals.

Guest: Dr. James Holly, Jr., Martin Luther King Jr. Senior High School, Detroit, MI


In a bonus episode, James discusses his current position as an academic interventionist at Martin Luther King Jr. Senior High School in Detroit, MI and “how his research has — or hasn’t — informed his ongoing work with urban black males.”
