 The long-running debate about the purpose of higher education highlights the tension between pushing the frontiers of knowledge and preparing students for practice. This talk presents a research agenda based on engaged scholarship as a means to more closely link education and practice and help professional students transition from school to work more successfully.
This presentation reports the findings of a study of newly hired engineering graduates—specifically looking at their transition from school to work. It recounts their rich and varied experiences as they learned the norms of organizational life and questioned their views of what it means to be an engineer. The findings challenge the limits of current research on socialization and the on-boarding practices of organizations. The findings also challenge the limits of professional education in the academy.
