10 Research

11 What works? Open-ended, contextual discussions (Stadler, Duit, & Benkes, 2000) Helping people, animals, society, environment, etc (Haussler & Hoffman, 2002; Mann, 1994; Stadler et al., 2000) Higher percentage of women in life sciences, biomedical and environmental and other engineering/science related to the human body, environment, and society (NSF, 2008) ?

12 Why it works? Learning in context? Relational learning ? Relevant learning? Engaging?

13 CEEO Research References/statements about the client – Women 17 per design session – Men 8 per design session References/statements about limitations of prototype design materials – Men 15 per design session – Women 3 per session

14 Research in your classroom
