Collaborative Research: Assessment of Product Archaeology as a Platform for Contextualizing Engineering Design

Project: Research project

Description

Collaborative Research: The Institutionalization and Sustainability of Product Archaeology A National Rollout Plan Dr. Ann McKenna will serve as ASUs Principal Investigator overseeing both the technical and financial aspects of ASUs proposed effort. In particular, Dr. McKenna will provide overall coordination of the assessment efforts of the project, and facilitate local data collection at ASU. She will work in close collaboration with each of the three assessment level leads at the collaborating institutions and will also implement product archaeology activities in her project based classes. Dr. McKenna will be the primary supervisor of the post-doctoral researcher. She will participate in project-wide team meetings, and collaborate with local colleagues, Drs. Henderson and Wu at ASU in supervising the graduate student. Dr. McKenna requests 0.5 summer months in each project year to complete her proposed efforts. Dr. Mark Henderson will serve as ASUs Co Principal Investigator and will commit 0.5 summer months each project year to complete his proposed efforts. He will primarily be responsible for leading the integration of global aspects into several courses at ASU, teaching several courses that implement product archaeology materials, and participating in the ASU assessment data collection and analysis. Dr. Teresa (Tong) Wu will serve as ASUs Co Principal Investigator and will commit 0.5 summer months each project year to complete her proposed efforts. She will primarily be responsible for teaching several courses at ASU that implement product archaeology materials, collaborating with the team to understand how GSEE concepts are applied in information systems and decision making, and participating in the ASU assessment data collection and analysis.
