3. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Teaching Preparation of Future Engineering Faculty Survey

I, Jutshi Agarwal, doctoral candidate with the Department of Engineering Education at University of Cincinnati, am seeking fellow engineering graduate student participation in my dissertation research on the teaching preparation of future engineering faculty. Participation involves a 15-minute survey on how confident engineering graduate students are in their abilities to teach undergraduate/graduate courses. Graduate students do not need to be involved in any teaching activity to respond to this survey. The study also involves an optional second stage of online interviews(recorded). You will be given the option at the end of the survey as to whether you wish to participate in the second stage. If you consent to the interview, you will be asked to provide your contact details so I can reach out to you for that part. You do NOT need to consent to the interview to participate in the survey.

More information about IRB (Institutional Review Board) approval, faculty advisors, and the study will be available at the link below before you start the survey. 

I sincerely thank you for your participation in this study. Please feel free to forward this call for participation to the greater graduate student community in your engineering college. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at .

5. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: The Chinese Society for Engineering Education (CSEE) 

CSEE is seeking nomination of 5 ASEE speakers for their VIRTUAL conference to be held December 4, 2021 (December 3, 2021 in US time zones).  The talks may be versions of talks given previously in other venues.  CSEE will work with the speakers to determine the talk format (i.e., live or pre-recorded) and length.


In addition to the topical foci indicated below.  We seek to identify speakers who meet the following criteria:

  • MUST HAVE – Has a topic consistent with the conference theme and suggested topics shown below,
  • STRONGLY DESIRED – Previously nominated as a best speaker or best paper author, and
  • WOULD BE NICE  – May have some interest in or connection with engineering education in the Peoples Republic of China.

If you have candidates meeting these criteria, please forward their name, email address, and a short abstract to Dr. Rachel Koroloff at BEFORE Wednesday, September 15.


The theme of this conference is “innovation paradigm change and innovation ecosystem”. The topics of the paper include but are not limited to the following contents: 

  • Open innovation and integration of global science and education resources 
  • New research universities and innovation paradigm change 
  • New national system and science and education integration system 
  • Practice, path and theoretical exploration of the integration of science and education 
  •  Integration of science and education under the trend of digitization and intelligence 
  • Training of new engineering talents in key core fields 
  • Training of innovative engineering science and technology talents driven by the integration of science and education 
  • Construction of new scientific research institutions and improvement of the efficiency of national innovation system 
  • The reform of science and education evaluation and the connotative development of higher education in the new era 
  • Innovation of industry education integration mode and training of high-level applied talents 
  • Integrating science and education to improve the basic research and original innovation ability of research universities 
  • The path and mode of cultivating postgraduates relying on major projects and major base platforms


6. Call for Papers Opening Soon

The 2022 Annual Conference call for papers will open September 8, 2021 and close – October 12, 2021. Make sure your ASEE profile email is up-to-date and your dues are paid to receive announcements.


Position Announcements, Detailed:


1. POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: Science and Engineering Education Fellow in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University

The Mechanical Engineering Department at Stanford University is seeking applications for a Science and Engineering Education Fellow (SEEF) in Mechanical Engineering (ME) to (a) support committed faculty in implementing an effective transition of ME courses to an active and more inclusive learning format, and (b) engage in research on engineering education and workplace practices. This comes at a key transition period for our BSME program, as we are amid assessing what components from our largely online course formats from AY21 we want to retain as we head back to all in-person teaching for AY22. The Fellow will join a campus-wide cohort of Science and Engineering Education Fellows, as well as including education-related scholars in the Designing Education Lab (DEL).
