4. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: 2023 PEER Collaborative National Workshop and Unconference

Save the Date: Wednesday, June 28 (dinner) and Thursday, June 29 (unconference day), 2023

Are you a faculty (new hire, pre-tenure, mid-career tenured faculty), postdoc, or staff member who is primarily evaluated on your engineering education work? The PEER Collaborative is a growing community of people in similar situations who mentor and support each other in their engineering education research positions.

Each year, academic members who are primarily evaluated on engineering education research have been meeting to talk through our needs together in our emerging research-based discipline of engineering education. There are too few senior faculty with expertise in engineering education research, and those colleagues are either too sought after or otherwise engaged to be able to spend much time with early career faculty. An annual workshop and unconference hosted immediately after ASEE has helped us to meet our own needs through peer and near-peer mentoring. The goals of the workshop are to 1. develop, support, and augment networks and working relationships and 2. support and be supported by peers near your same career level on different aspects of work and personal life.

Please join us for this year’s dinner and unconference!

Tentative PEER 2023 Schedule:

Wednesday, 6:30pm-8:00 pm: Dinner (at a nearby restaurant)

Thursday, 9:00am-5:00 pm: Unconference (with lunch break)

Come to as many or as few events as you are able. The location is TBD but near the Baltimore Conference Center.

  1. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: 2023 PEER Collaborative National Workshop and Unconference

Save the Date: Wednesday, June 28 (dinner) and Thursday, June 29 (unconference day), 2023

Are you a faculty (new hire, pre-tenure, mid-career tenured faculty), postdoc, or staff member who is primarily evaluated on your engineering education work? The PEER Collaborative is a growing community of people in similar situations who mentor and support each other in their engineering education research positions.

Each year, academic members who are primarily evaluated on engineering education research have been meeting to talk through our needs together in our emerging research-based discipline of engineering education. There are too few senior faculty with expertise in engineering education research, and those colleagues are either too sought after or otherwise engaged to be able to spend much time with early career faculty. An annual workshop and unconference hosted immediately after ASEE has helped us to meet our own needs through peer and near-peer mentoring. The goals of the workshop are to 1. develop, support, and augment networks and working relationships and 2. support and be supported by peers near your same career level on different aspects of work and personal life.

Please join us for this year’s dinner and unconference!

Tentative PEER 2023 Schedule:

Wednesday, 6:30pm-8:00 pm: Dinner (at a nearby restaurant)

Thursday, 9:00am-5:00 pm: Unconference (with lunch break)

Come to as many or as few events as you are able. The location is TBD but near the Baltimore Conference Center.

Please register at our website: https://sites.google.com/view/peer-collaborative. Please direct any questions to Corey Bowen at cbowen5@calstatela.edu.

  1. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: IEEE ETHICS-2023: Ethics in the Global Innovation Helix

18-20 May 2023, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA

IEEE ETHICS-2023 will draw together the global community of technology and ethics practitioners and theoreticians from industry, academia, government, and civil society. Issues will be explored from industry, scientific and societal perspectives, in a global and multicultural manner. ETHICS-2023 is a conference of the IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology (SSIT) (series originally launched in 2014). ETHICS-2023 is co-sponsored and hosted by the National Institute for Engineering Ethics in the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University, a leading land grant university with top-ranked engineering, technology, and computing programs, and an expansive portfolio of sponsored research and engagements in the ethics and policy realms. The triple helix model of innovation was introduced in the 1990s, developed to theorize and understand interactions between academia, industry, and government. Since then, scholars have expanded it to include additional strands or sectors, including society or the public (quadruple helix) and the natural environment (quintuple helix). The conference theme, “Ethics in the Global Innovation Helix,” underscores questions about the role and place of ethics and related concerns (e.g., social responsibility, social justice, regulatory compliance, etc.) in interactions between these strands, especially in ongoing processes of technology innovation, diffusion, evolution, and maintenance.

  1. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: 2023 PEER Collaborative National Workshop and Unconference

Save the Date: Wednesday, June 28 (dinner) and Thursday, June 29 (unconference day), 2023

Are you a faculty (new hire, pre-tenure, mid-career tenured faculty), postdoc, or staff member who is primarily evaluated on your engineering education work? The PEER Collaborative is a growing community of people in similar situations who mentor and support each other in their engineering education research positions.

Each year, academic members who are primarily evaluated on engineering education research have been meeting to talk through our needs together in our emerging research-based discipline of engineering education. There are too few senior faculty with expertise in engineering education research, and those colleagues are either too sought after or otherwise engaged to be able to spend much time with early career faculty. An annual workshop and unconference hosted immediately after ASEE has helped us to meet our own needs through peer and near-peer mentoring. The goals of the workshop are to 1. develop, support, and augment networks and working relationships and 2. support and be supported by peers near your same career level on different aspects of work and personal life.

Please join us for this year’s dinner and unconference!

Tentative PEER 2023 Schedule:

Wednesday, 6:30pm-8:00 pm: Dinner (at a nearby restaurant)

Thursday, 9:00am-5:00 pm: Unconference (with lunch break)

Come to as many or as few events as you are able. The location is TBD but near the Baltimore Conference Center.

Please register at our website: https://sites.google.com/view/peer-collaborative. Please direct any questions to Corey Bowen at cbowen5@calstatela.edu.

Abstracts should be submitted electronically to:  https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/MDW2023/ Please note that new users will need to create an account on CMT.

Vision: Gather between fifty and seventy-five engineers, designers, and educators to discuss and share approaches for building bridges, creating connections, and removing obstacles to cross-disciplinary, inter-institutional, community, and industry partnerships in design education. We approach this goal believing that the best partnerships share perspectives, domain knowledge, values, and skill sets that compliment those of their other members in service to their mission. Within engineering design education, the opportunity to expose students to perspectives and paradigms that differ or conflict with their training is sometimes limited and often resisted. Cultivating methods to productively engage students beyond classrooms, departments, and universities that increase perspective heterodoxy and improve design approaches significantly broadens the student design experience beyond what may be a narrowly focused detailed design exercise. Helping students manage a broad set of perspectives and approaches is an important aspect of these partnerships.

Mission: We will identify the best practices, opportunities, and challenges broadly associated with cooperative partnerships and expanding design perspectives. We will discuss ways that educators, students, courses, and curricula can be positioned and developed to serve partners in engineering design education.  

Experience: Workshop sessions are initiated by brief summary or position statements from panelists followed by an open discussion. A wrap-up session will collect the most important outputs for improving engineering design education for dissemination to the community. Participants will receive a preliminary proceedings containing near-final manuscripts of presented papers.

Participants are invited to further refine their work and submit to peer review for publication in a Special Issue of the International Journal of Engineering Education containing the resulting proceedings of the Clive L. Dym Mudd Design Workshop XIII. In this case, authors will be requested to distinguish their workshop submission as scholarly research, position papers, or provocative observations so that they may be appropriately included in the IJEE Special Issue or elsewhere as appropriate.

  1.     CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: Survey on Digitalization of the Engineering Curriculum

The increasingly digital world is increasingly being reflected in the way in which we practice and teach engineering.  Emergency remote instruction during the COVID pandemic has shown that indeed most of an engineering degree can be taught online; however, the majority of efforts in this space were digital versions of face-to-face teaching.  As we emerge from the pandemic it is timely to consider which parts of the curriculum matter most for student learning, and whether they should return to face to face delivery, or move towards digital native forms of learning. 

The UNESCO Centre for PBL at Aalborg University is running a survey to evaluate faculty perceptions of how important a range of activities are for student learning, as well as how suitable those experiences are for digitalization. The items on this survey are not structured by the traditional timetabled experiences for student engineers (e.g. lectures / tutorials / laboratories); instead these experiences have been unpacked into the affordances that they provide.  

The survey is available online at tiny.cc/digitalsurvey

Any questions regarding the survey can be directed to Euan Lindsay, Professor of PBL and Digitalisation in Engineering Education: edl@plan.aau.dk

  1.     CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: Survey on Thriving among undergraduate engineering students 

Dr. Julianna Gesun would appreciate help sharing the following survey with undergraduate engineering students (ideally in their second year and higher class standing)!

How: This survey can be shared on listservs with undergraduate engineering students who might self-identify as thriving. Even better, engineering instructors can dedicate class time or extra credit for survey completion is another incentive to support this research and get more students thinking about their thriving.

Why: Including universities in this phase of survey development means that the final survey with evidence of validity and reliability will be applicable to the university’s students. Furthermore, this survey is a good opportunity for engineering students to reflect on their own thriving.

What: Here is the IRB-approved recruitment message:

—————————-

Dear engineering student,

Interested in reflecting on your own thriving? As part of a research project, thriving engineering students are invited to take a survey of engineering thriving. This project seeks to develop a way of accurately measuring thriving that can inform universities on ways to better support student thriving.
