Two educational research projects proposed by three Missouri S&T faculty have been funded for 2016-17 as part of a mini-grant program co-sponsored by the office of undergraduate studies and global learning, and administered through the Center for Educational Research and Teaching Innovation (CERTI).

This is the sixth year of the program, with this cycle of funding focusing on distance courses and instructors. The program is designed to help instructors tackle a teaching or learning issue in which a specific, measurable research question is examined to bring about improved student learning, retention or academic success.

The 2016-17 funded projects are:

  • “Student-Centered Dynamic Syllabus Development for Mathematical Programming,” by Dr. Dincer Konur, assistant professor of engineering management and systems engineering, for $3,000
  • “Impact of Cross Functional Interdisciplinary Team Structure and Immersive Learning Environment on Students’ Perception of Learning Experience, Engagement and Course Satisfaction,” Dr. Bih-Ru Lea, associate professor of business and information technology, and Dr. LiLi Eng, associate professor of business and information technology, for $3,000.

Results of this research will be shared with the campus at the Missouri S&T Teaching and Learning Technology Conference in March 2017.
