The project described here is one of six “revolutionizing engineering departments” (RED) grants recently awarded by the National Science Foundation. The RED project at Arizona State University (ASU) focuses on empowering faculty to be agents of change to expand our project-based learning pedagogy throughout our mezzanine engineering fundamental courses, and our upper division concentration area disciplinary courses. We approach this challenge by attending to the larger ecosystem of people and organizations within which change happens, and by using evidence-based methods to make revolutionary advances within our engineering program. We have developed six current working groups in order to manage the range of research foci and provide structure to our project activities. These working groups focus on the following topics: 1) capturing the culture, 2) characterizing the ecosystem, 3) coordinating a NEXUS and realizing an additive innovation mindset, 4) studying making in the mezzanine courses, 5) measuring pedagogical risk taking by the faculty, and 6) tracing impact. This paper provides an overview of each of these six areas, describes how they advance the goals of the project, and presents results to-date.
