Faculty in the Experiential Engineering Education Department at Rowan University supervise Masters and Doctorate level students while conducting funded research for government agencies and foundations. ExEEd faculty conduct research in areas related to pedagogy and engineering education.

  • Dr. Farrell’s research focuses on institutional change; diversity, equity and inclusion in engineering; pedagogical innovation; and spatial skills in engineering.
  • Dr. Bodnar’s research interests relate to the incorporation of active learning techniques such as game-based learning in undergraduate classes as well as integration of innovation and entrepreneurship into the engineering curriculum.  In particular, she is interested in the impact that these tools can have on student perception of the classroom environment, motivation, and learning outcomes.
  • Dr. Mallouk conducts research on faculty development and the adoption of innovative pedagogical techniques as well as strategies for improving diversity, equity, and inclusion in colleges of engineering.
  • Dr. Streiner’s research focuses on global engineering education, competency, and its assessment. His research interests also include game-based learning, and engineering ethics education as it applies to an increasingly cross-culture world.
  • Dr. Cruz uses a systems perspective of higher education to study faculty development and students’ academic motivation and learning. His research interests include the adoption of research-based instructional strategies in classrooms, and how they impact students’ academic motivation.
  • Dr. Everett conducts research on living and learning communities and hybrid courses, i.e., courses with in-class and online components.
