Abstract

Teamwork and communication skills are essential to engineering practice, but often play a tenuous role in engineering coursework. In this workshop, we explore the role that faculty beliefs play in curriculum decisions around the teaching and learning of these skills. In particular, we explore the ways that values, competence, and autonomy influence faculty practice, and discuss opportunities to enhance professional practice through reflection upon those beliefs.
