  • How does the work advance frontiers in education within the context of FIE?
  • To what extent are the practices described in the paper innovative, leading-edge, cutting-edge?
  • Does the work demonstrate knowledge of related work and discuss the relevance of the submission's contribution in the context of the prior literature in the field and other relevant areas?
  • Does the work demonstrate scholarly quality as evaluated on the strength of its methodology, the quality/depth of its theoretical foundation, and the quality/depth of its analysis and related discussion?  Work-in-Progress papers and innovative practice papers should introduce new ideas and encourage a discourse that can potentially advance the field in some way. 

The research category is for scholarly proposals that outline contributions to research in the area of engineering and/or computing education. Excellent proposals are well situated in prior literature on teaching and learning, and outlines research methods and findings of value and interest to engineering and/or computing educators.
