Research

Larysa Nadolny, associate professor in the School of Education, received $293,118 from the National Science Foundation to research effective strategies for the implementation of games in chemical engineering curricula. The research team will develop a STEM-focused dashboard that includes tools such as leaderboards, badges, and awards to increase retention rates in chemical engineering students. This project will continue to improve over its three year course, thanks to the advisory board of national experts who will provide feedback. This project will contribute to the understanding of motivation in regard to gamification in chemical engineering coursework, and provide knowledge for applying gamification to courses in other STEM fields.
