Spatial Visualization: A Promising Intervention for Promoting Student Equity


Spatial Visualization:  A Promising Intervention for Promoting Student Equity

WEPAN Member access to all webinar recordings & resources

Evidence-based intervention that promotes student equity, persistence, AND success in engineering education.


In this webinar you will learn:

  • Why spatial visualization assessment and training is vital, especially for at-risk women, underrepresented, and international students; and
  • How to easily replicate a successful spatial visualization workshop used at the University of Colorado College of Engineering and Applied Science.

This EIT webinar recording is publicly accessible.

WEPAN members can access the following additional webinar resources:

  • Powerpoint (PDF)
  • CU Boulder Budget
  • SV Skills Example Email Invite
  • Week 1: Lesson Plan
  • Action Plan Worksheet
  • Isometric Paper
  • Orthographic Paper
  • Recommended Reading list




EIT hosted this webinar on behalf of the ENGAGE Engineering program, another WEPAN Strategic Initiative. All webinar recordings in the EIT series are publicly accessible and can be accessed here.

Our Presenters

Jacob Segil, Ph.D.; Instructor, Engineering Plus; CU-Boulder

Dr. Segil teaches mechatronic design, experimental design, and statistics. He serves a foundational role in developing the Spatial Visualization Workshops at CU. Segil’s research includes brain-machine interfaces, neural prosthetic devices, and myoelectric control systems. Dr. Segil earned his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado Boulder.
Jacquelyn Sullivan, Ph.D.; Co-Director, Engineering Plus Program & Co-Director, Integrated Teaching and Learning (ITL) Program; CU-Boulder

In her Co-Director roles, Dr. Sullivan is focused on integrating hands-on engineering throughout the K-16 learning experience. Previously, as Associate Dean for Inclusive Excellence, Sullivan spearheaded design and launch of many initiatives focused on broadening participation—resulting in dramatic and lasting college-wide results.   Sullivan founded ASEE's K-12 and PreCollege Engineering Division, is an ASEE Fellow (2011) and was awarded NAE’s Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education (2008). Dr. Sullivan earned her Ph.D. in environmental health physics and aquatic toxicology from Purdue University.
