Work in Progress: Can Bourdieu's Habitus Provide a Theoretical Framework for Engineering Education Research? The special topic calls for papers on “Work in Progress: Can Bourdieu's Habitus Provide a Theoretical Framework for Engineering Education Research?” and such papers will appear in Higher Education of Social Science as a special column.

Description One paper explores the use of Bourdieu's Theory of Habitus as a theoretical framework for a PhD study on the dispositions enabling non-traditional students to succeed in their first year of engineering studies. It provides a review of Bourdieu's sociological Theory of Habitus and the application of this framework to higher education settings and in particular to engineering education. Bourdieu's theory of Habitus provides a framework for exploring and analyzing the behavior of individuals within a particular environment. It can provide insight into the behavior, and subsequent academic performance, of an increasingly diverse student cohort in the Australian higher education system. Bourdieu's theor y offers researchers the opportunity to understand the complexity of human interactions within the education system. Moreover it is currently an underutilized tool for developing research methodologies as well as providing a framework for subsequent analys is.
