Abstract

The goal of this research seminar is to present the development of a survey designed to assess hidden curriculum (HC) in engineering.

HC consists of the unwritten norms, values, and beliefs that are carried among dominant social actors but that are not readily available to underrepresented populations. While HC has been explored extensively in educational, business, and psychological research, in engineering it is severely underexplored. Constructs on HC awareness, emotions, self-efficacy, and self-advocacy were purposefully selected to gain a more holistic sense of what underrepresented populations (primarily Latinx populations and to some extent African American, Asian, and other minority groups) experience in their engineering cultures and environments.
