Abstract

Our project is an interdisciplinary study aiming to understand engineering students “habits of mind”, which are modes of thinking required for STEM students to become effective problem solvers. After presenting the goals of our project and the context of our study, we summarize our initial progress and our proposed framework. This is a work in progress.
