This is our 27th issue, and it marks the beginning of a major change. I will be turning the editor-in-chief duties over to Holly Matusovich. Holly, Professor of Engineering Education at Virginia Tech, will be transitioning into the editor’s chair over the next few months, and will assume full duties by January 1, 2021. As editor, Holly brings a new vision to Advances and a charge from ASEE’s Board to take the Journal to the next level.
Issue number 27 contains nine full papers plus one shorter “Looking Ahead” article. Of note is that five of the papers are international from Qatar, Australia (two), Columbia and the United Arab Republic, an indication that we have extended our reach around the world. In addition, four of the papers address societal issues particularly in the less-developed world. The papers also describe a wide range of pedogeological issues including blended learning, challenged based learning, problem based learning, experiential learning, human-centered design, simulations, visualization, and games.
