In the 1990s, significant attention was given to the status of research in the Technology and Engineering Education (TEE) field and the direction for future research (Foster, 1992, 1996, 1999; Wicklein, 1993; Zuga, 1994, 1999, 2001; and Lewis, 1999). This research and dialogue resulted in numerous recommendations for future research and practice. Although each effort was unique, it is possible to assert that there existed general agreement that research was important to the field’s future and was one of the primary means by which the field would continue to develop and mature. It was also clear, that collectively this body of literature supported the notion that more research was needed that focused on key questions that provide a theoretical foundation for the field. A brief summary of this literature follows.
