This work in progress paper describes a two-session instructional module on equitable engineering talk, which explicitly addressed the role of discourse in engineering practice as well as the importance of inclusive and equitable discourse in a first-year engineering course. In the module, students audio recorded themselves as they worked in small groups to plan an initial solution to an engineering design problem. After listening to their recorded discourse, they participated in scaffolded reflection about engineering group work interactions. The module provided students with the opportunity to assess and evaluate their own discussions for equity and inclusion as well as those of experienced engineers. Data were obtained in the form of student written work and post-intervention in-class video of student group interactions.
