Survey on changes due to COVID-19

Dear Colleague,

We are reaching out to you because you lead a division within ASEE. We kindly request that you share our survey link (below) along with the following basic information about the study with your members.

We are conducting a study on 1) the changes that you have had to make or are planning to make to your engineering coursesand 2) the challenges your engineering undergraduate students are facing in light of the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Your responses will help us summarize the types of changes being made as well as put together a repository of those changes that we then can share. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and is anonymous. Results will be shared only in the aggregate.

If you agree to take the survey, we ask you to consider forwarding it to other colleagues of yours leading the engineering programs in the U.S. All those who complete the survey can enter a raffle of 10 Amazon gift cards worth $50 each.

The study has been approved by the University of Houston IRB. If you have questions about the approval, you may contact the IRB at (713) 743-9204 or If you have questions about the study, you may contact either one of us.

Many thanks,

NSF funded research study on active learning


As part of an NSF-funded research study, we are looking for college-level instructors to help us test a survey about faculty use of active learning.

Subject: Active learning survey pilot with drawing for $100 Amazon gift cards

Participation involves completing a short survey:  The survey is 6 questions and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. Participants will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $100 Amazon gift cards.

If you have any questions, please email Maura Borrego at

Thank you,

Maura Borrego

Survey on BME labs

In an effort to benchmark how undergraduate biomedical engineering programs are using labs in their curricula, we are asking lab instructors to complete a brief survey. Participants will be entered in a raffle for a $200 gift card.

Please complete the survey by December 1, 2019.
Thank you for your assistance with this project.

Biomedical Engineering Educator Community (BEEC) Virtual Conference

A group of educators from The Ohio State University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the University of Massachusetts Lowell are trying to assess interest and suggestions for a professional development virtual conference and to develop learning communities among teaching-focused faculty in Bioengineering/Biomedical Engineering. We are asking that you fill out a survey to identify topics that would be a priority for this virtual meeting and to help guide future efforts to develop resources and events for this community.
