What a Systematic Literature Review Tells Us About Transportation Engineering Education Engineering education research has evolved considerably over the last several decades and has revealed much about effective teaching practices for engineering. There is concern that the level of adoption of these effective teaching practices across the engineering programs is relatively low and that meaningful assessment of student learning using innovative practices is rare. One reason for this may be lack of meaningful dialogue about these practices at a discipline specific level, creating a disconnect between engineering education researchers and the larger group of education practitioners. A systematic literature review is a method for exploring a large amount of published material to expose underlying trends. This paper uses the sub-‐discipline of Transportation Engineering to illustrate the use of a systematic literature review as a catalyst for improving the dialogue on the use of more effective teaching practices and the assessment of student learning using these practices. The case study discusses the methodology for performing a systematic literature review and highlights some of the case study findings in the context of how these findings can be used to identify next steps for instigating transformative change in the field of transportation engineering education.
