The UWP's Rachel Riedner, along with Professors Royce Francis (SEAS) and Marie Paretti (Engineering Education, Virginia Tech), received a grant from the National Science Foundation. Their project seeks to better prepare engineers for professional work by understanding how experiences of learning to write in school help develop students' capacities for engineering judgement and their identities as responsible professionals.
