Recent discussion within the Education, Research and Methods Division (ERM) of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) suggests that curriculum leadership will only become possible when science and engineering educators have a thorough grounding in curriculum theory and practices. This paper describes the classroom research related to this view among graduate students enrolled in the spring, 2002 seminar titled, Teaching Science and Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Results will have implications for the education and training of graduate students who are teaching assistants or who pursue academic careers.
