2022 PEER Collaborative National
Workshop and Unconference

Save the Date: Wednesday, June 29 (dinner) and Thursday, June 30 (unconference day), 2022

Are you a faculty (new hire, pre-tenure, tenured or mid-career faculty) or staff member who is primarily evaluated on your engineering education work? The PEER Collaborative is a growing community of people in similar situations who mentor each other in engineering education research matters.

Tentative PEER 2022 Schedule, location TBD but nearby Minneapolis Conference Center. Come to as many or as few events as you are able.


6:30-8:00 pm Dinner at nearby restaurant

Context and Need

Over the past few years, faculty members who are primarily evaluated on engineering education research have been meeting to talk about what needs one has being on tenure-track or in mid-career in our emerging research-based discipline of engineering education. There are too few senior faculty with expertise in engineering education research, and those colleagues are either too sought after or otherwise engaged to be able to spend much time with early career faculty.

An annual workshop and unconference immediately after ASEE has helped to meet our own needs through peer and near-peer mentoring. We continue to organize gatherings to support peer mentoring.

Goals for the Workshop

The goals of the workshop are to:

  1. develop, support, and augment networks and working relationships between faculty members and research staff working at institutions who are evaluated primarily on their engineering education research performance (this can include pre-tenure faculty, research professionals, or tenured, mid-career faculty.

  2. develop relationships with peers near your same career level; peers who can help with different aspects of their work and personal life within pairs or teams for multiple mentoring opportunities, and within a group in which all share the context of conducting engineering education research
