In 2017, the National Science Foundation (NSF) organized a workshop in Washington D.C. to introduce a new methodology, SenseMaker®, to the engineering education research community. This paper describes the development and implementation of a SenseMaker study, “The Engineering Experience Project,” at [Name of University]. Through sharing our experiences with using this novel approach, the purpose of this paper is to start a conversation about the affordances and limitations of using SenseMaker to investigate and transform cultures and practices of engineering education. To this end, we hope readers will finish this paper with a working understanding of what SenseMaker is, what is involved in designing and conducting a SenseMaker study, what the results look like, how this approach has been used in the past, and questions we are currently reflecting on as we plan our next round of data collection.
