Wednesday, November 1, 2017 - 2:10pm to 2:30pm
In this paper, we will report on preliminary implementation of functional teaming, identify key aspects that frame functional teaming, with particular attention given to identifying: (i) the role status plays in group interaction, i.e., to what degree does an idea depend on who is saying it rather than the idea itself; and (ii) work that is âteam worthy,â i.e., is the problem / issue presented to the student team challenging enough to benefit from multiple perspectives and various slices of understanding? This work is supported by the National Science Foundation pilot programÂ Revolutionizing Engineering DepartmentsÂ (RED) that is aligned with the NSF Engineering (ENG) Directorateâs multi-year initiative, theÂ Professional Formation of Engineers, to create and support an innovative and inclusive engineering profession for the 21stÂ Century.
