This marks the 20th issue of Advances. It features nine peer-reviewed articles and our first book review. The authors collectively come from fifteen different institutions. These include a number whose faculty typically appear in the engineering education literature, including Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Duke, Iowa State, North Carolina State, Colorado School of Mines, Georgia Tech, Arizona State and George Mason as well as less well known schools: Wartburg College, University of Toledo, Roger Williams, The Citadel, James Madison, Southern Illinois and the University of Northern Iowa. It is being able to see articles by faculty from this latter group of institutions that is particularly gratifying, because it substantiates a reason for founding the journal; that is, providing an outlet for the broader spectrum of engineering faculty to publish significant classroom achievements.… (click PDF to continue reading).
