The Hazard Communications Standard, commonly known as the Worker Right to Know law, requires that a chemical information sheet, known as a material safety data sheet (MSDS), be produced for all hazardous chemicals. This study examines the comprehensibility of a sample of MSDSs to a group of about 100 unionized workers in manufacturing industries located in(More)
Hackademia is a semi-formal learning group that introduces largely non-technical students to basic technical skills by presenting them with open-ended challenges in a peer-based, collaborative environment. This project has two main goals: the near-end goal has been to use a collaborative design model to develop a working, scalable model for teaching(More)
The importance of workers' right-to-know about current hazards in the workplace and the importance of notification about risks associated with past exposures would seem self-evident. Some of the methods for achieving the goal of an informed work force can be found in the existing right-to-know laws and notification programs. This article reviews(More)
The objective of this work is to explore how implications for educational practice are represented in the scholarly literature of engineering education. This work is motivated by the increasing urgency to understand how research can be used to transform educational practice. Because scholarly writing (such as conference papers and journal articles)(More)
This article summarizes discussions held during the workshop on the issue of the content of worker notification messages and related topics. The workshop itself involved a number of sessions where participants formed small groups. This article represents a distillation of the summary reports by the rapporteurs from each group. It is not intended as a(More)
This paper looks at characteristics of a studio environment and the ways in which engineering pedagogies can begin to incorporate them. Using inductive coding, student reflection forms, in which students described their experiences with a studio environment as they developed professional portfolios, are analyzed. Based on our findings and using communities(More)
In recent years, the engineering education community has invested significant energy and resources in the creation of a rigorous empirical knowledge base to support the transformation of engineering education practice. In this work, we address the specific question: When researchers identify practical implications in their research publications, what(More)
