Due to the laboratory-based nature of technology and engineering education programs, professionals in our field have often focused on the resources in our classrooms and laboratories and the instructional methodologies used to address specific concepts. Formal research into content and practice has often given way to “what seems right”. New curriculum is constantly being introduced (based on what is occurring in business and industry), yet the inclusion for those evolving concepts in courses and programs is typically not verified.
Hence, the importance of the 2010 CTTE yearbook and its focus on the dire need for an aggressive research agenda in your field. This publication is designed to help direct the professional efforts of researchers, classroom educators, administrators, and curriculum specialists. Each chapter draws attention to a different aspect of investigative thought and action.
