Dr. May is an Assistant Professor in the Engineering Education Transformations Institute and conducts research on online as well as intercultural engineering education. In his work, he focuses on developing broader educational strategies for the design and use of online engineering equipment, putting these into practice and provide the evidence base for further development efforts. Moreover, he is developing instructional concepts to bring students into international study contexts so that they can experience intercultural collaboration and develop respective competences. Dr. May is Executive Committee Member of the International Association of Online Engineering (IAOE), which is an international non-profit organization with the objective of encouraging the wider development, distribution and application of Online Engineering (OE) technologies and its influence to the society. Furthermore Dr. May serves as associate Editor-in-Chief for the ‘International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Learning (iJET)’ with the aim to promote the interdisciplinary discussion of engineers, educators and engineering education researchers around technology, instruction and research. At his former institution Dr. May was research scientist and project lead of numerous extra-mural funded research projects in the area of Engineering Education Research with focus on distance education as well as remote experimentation and with this he gained extensive experience in developing, integrating, and evaluating innovative learning experiences combining the engineering and didactic perspective. Dr. May has organized several conferences in the Engineering Education Research field and is current program committee member for the annual International Conference on Remote Engineering and Virtual Instrumentation (REV).
