Student Poster Guidelines

Paper submission for Accepted with Revisions papers has an expected deadline of June 1, 2020
Final camera-ready papers of Accepted papers will open in June with a deadline of July 13, 2020

 

The anticipated audience for FIE represents a broad spectrum of backgrounds.  Attendees cover all disciplines relating to engineering and computing education and come from a variety of institutions and organizations worldwide.  Typical interests range from education research to extending promising results into their own educational settings.  Attendees are eager to learn not only of your results but how your results might be applied in their particular discipline at their particular institution.  To encourage the engagement of students in the FIE conference, FIE accepts student posters. Student poster submissions will require the submission of an initial abstract, a draft poster, and final abstract.

* Please add the term ‘Student Poster’ to the first sentence of your abstract.

To align with other aspects of the conference, you can categorize your poster as:
1.    Innovative Practice
2.    Research-to-Practice
3.    Research

Just like Full Papers and WIP, one author from each poster is expected to register for and participate in the full conference; however, due to the student focus of this track, this may be at the student rate (*Copy of ID required). Detailed requirements about the posters are listed on the conference website.

These categories influence the overall structure and contents of the submitted work.  Each category follows with suggestions for expected poster contents.

Innovative Practice Category

The innovative practice category is for scholarly proposals of reflective or novel practice in the area of engineering and/or computing education. Excellent proposals are well situated in prior literature on teaching and learning, and outlines an innovation of value and interest to engineering and/or computing educators.

Abstracts: Innovative Practice Abstracts should be 300-500 words and should clearly present the paper’s relevance to engineering education and how the work is innovative. In addition, each abstract should be identified as a “Student Poster” track proposal, and define (minimally) one topic keyword.

Each abstract must briefly state the specific contribution of the poster to the innovative practice of engineering and/or computing education. Contributions may be made in various forms, and should include a description of what is unique about the innovative practice, how the innovative practice differs from and builds on previous practice as documented in the literature, and new ideas that conference participants would take away from this poster. The abstract should describe the setting for the innovative practice in the broad context of engineering and/or computing education, (not necessarily the particular institutional context), motivations for the innovative practice, and the results obtained. Abstracts must present the poster’s relevance to engineering and/or computing education and how the work is innovative.

Research-to-Practice Category

The research-to-practice category is for scholarly proposals that outline applications of research in engineering and/or computing education. Excellent proposals are well situated in the theoretical framework(s) that support teaching and learning, and applies these theoretical frameworks to the practice of engineering and/or computing education.

Abstracts: Research-to-Practice Abstracts should be 300-500 words and should clearly present the theoretical frameworks of teaching and learning being applied, and the implications for the practice of engineering and/or computing education. In addition, each abstract should be identified as a “Student Poster” track proposal, and define at least one topic keyword.

Each abstract must briefly state the specific contribution of the poster towards illustrating how engineering and/or computing education research informs educational practice. Contributions may be made in various forms, but they should describe the setting for the practice in the broad context of engineering and/or computing education, (not necessarily the particular institutional context), motivations for the practice, research that supported the practice, and results obtained. Abstracts must outline the theoretical frameworks that inform the practice and state the implications for educational practice with a focus on action.

Research Category

The research category is for scholarly proposals that outline contributions to research in the area of engineering and/or computing education. Excellent proposals are well situated in prior literature on teaching and learning, and outlines research methods and findings of value and interest to engineering and/or computing educators.

Abstracts: Research Abstracts should be 300-500 words and should clearly present the poster’s research contribution and its relevance to engineering and/or computing education. In addition, each abstract should be identified as a “Student Poster” track proposal, and must define at least one topic keyword.

Each abstract must state the specific research contribution of the poster. Contributions may be made in various forms, and should include the research questions addressed, methods used and results found, and a description of how the results build on prior research. Abstracts must provide a summary of the research contribution/expected results and brief statement of the implications for educational practice with a focus on action.
