Student Division Newsletter, April 2021

Happy April, Student Division!

 

Can you believe that it’s April already? For many of us, final exams and summer break are fast approaching! I’m most looking forward to being able to visit friends and family that I haven’t seen in far too long. Even if you’ll be working through the summer, I hope the conference opportunities and the time away from classes serve as a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the fall and spring. Although we don’t have much in the way of division-specific announcements this month, we wanted to extend a warm thanks to Adrianne for planning and hosting our virtual escape room event last month, as well as those who participated. We couldn’t have pulled it off without you all!

 

We’re still in the process of updating our Twitter, Facebook, Slack, Discord, and website to have more consistent streams of relevant information. We’ll use these platforms to deliver programming that focuses on topics like mental health, diversity and inclusivity in engineering education, and promoting student chapter growth and development.

 

Finally, as always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Adrianne (awheel13@depaul.edu) or Cassie (cswood@umich.edu) with any questions or concerns regarding the division or the annual conference, or to Skyler (me@skylerausten.com) with questions about adding a listing to our monthly newsletter.

10. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Queer Student Panel Recruitment through ASEE Student Division

Our names are Brandon Bakka and Madeleine Jennings. We are both queer graduate students interested in studying the queer engineering experience.

We are emailing to request panelists for our panel entitled “Student Panel: Understanding Queer Experiences in Engineering.” We are seeking participants in a graduate or undergraduate engineering program, who identify in any way with the LGBTQIA+ community, and who reside at the intersections of other marginalized identities. We recognize that queerness is not the only identity that is marginalized in engineering. We also realize that queerness intersects with other marginalized identities and that our current sociopolitical climate mandates now more than ever that we as scholars pay attention to these intersections of identity. Therefore, we would like to be intentional about elevating the voices of queer engineering students who reside at the intersections of marginalization, and particularly our queer, Black colleagues.

This panel will serve to educate faculty about the experiences and challenges that LGBTQIA+ undergraduate and graduate engineering students face both personally and professionally. This panel will be organized and executed entirely by students. This innovative approach provides a platform for a traditionally marginalized student group to share their stories and to educate allies. This panel will also serve as a pilot for a new type of training that reinforces allyship and advocacy for the queer community through participatory action and story-telling. This training is also designed to build empathetic connections through the sharing of real experiences that students have had in engineering. By grounding this panel in LGBTQIA+ student experiences and empathetic learning outcomes, we intend to educate our participants beyond just LGBTQIA+ terminology. The goal of this panel is to help participants empathize with the realities of navigating in engineering as a marginalized individual.

Finally, we would like to acknowledge that sharing our stories as queer engineers can be both therapeutic as well as difficult. This panel is intended to be impactful precisely because we anticipate it to be raw, honest, and emotional. In the event that you do not feel comfortable serving as a panelist, we are also collecting statements and stories from queer engineering students to include in our training packet that participants will receive.

If you are interested in participating in this panel, please fill out the following survey. https://utexas.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0p7BamP9JVysZJX

We look forward to hearing from you!

Kind regards,

Brandon Bakka, He/They (bbakka@utexas.edu)

Madeleine Jennings They/Them (mfjenni1@asu.edu)

10. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Queer Student Panel Recruitment through ASEE Student Division

Our names are Brandon Bakka and Madeleine Jennings. We are both queer graduate students interested in studying the queer engineering experience.

We are emailing to request panelists for our panel entitled “Student Panel: Understanding Queer Experiences in Engineering.” We are seeking participants in a graduate or undergraduate engineering program, who identify in any way with the LGBTQIA+ community, and who reside at the intersections of other marginalized identities. We recognize that queerness is not the only identity that is marginalized in engineering. We also realize that queerness intersects with other marginalized identities and that our current sociopolitical climate mandates now more than ever that we as scholars pay attention to these intersections of identity. Therefore, we would like to be intentional about elevating the voices of queer engineering students who reside at the intersections of marginalization, and particularly our queer, Black colleagues.

This panel will serve to educate faculty about the experiences and challenges that LGBTQIA+ undergraduate and graduate engineering students face both personally and professionally. This panel will be organized and executed entirely by students. This innovative approach provides a platform for a traditionally marginalized student group to share their stories and to educate allies. This panel will also serve as a pilot for a new type of training that reinforces allyship and advocacy for the queer community through participatory action and story-telling. This training is also designed to build empathetic connections through the sharing of real experiences that students have had in engineering. By grounding this panel in LGBTQIA+ student experiences and empathetic learning outcomes, we intend to educate our participants beyond just LGBTQIA+ terminology. The goal of this panel is to help participants empathize with the realities of navigating in engineering as a marginalized individual.

Finally, we would like to acknowledge that sharing our stories as queer engineers can be both therapeutic as well as difficult. This panel is intended to be impactful precisely because we anticipate it to be raw, honest, and emotional. In the event that you do not feel comfortable serving as a panelist, we are also collecting statements and stories from queer engineering students to include in our training packet that participants will receive.

If you are interested in participating in this panel, please fill out the following survey. https://utexas.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0p7BamP9JVysZJX

We look forward to hearing from you!

Kind regards,

Brandon Bakka, He/They (bbakka@utexas.edu)

  1. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION:JEE Mentored Reviewer Program

The Journal of Engineering Education (JEE) is committed to cultivate, disseminate, and archive scholarly research in engineering education.  To expand our reviewer base and maintain the quality of manuscript reviews, JEE  launched a new Mentored Reviewer Program in January 2019. This program is intended to coach new or novice reviewers through the review process with mentor who has substantial experience in reviewing and writing engineering education research studies. We are inviting applications for mentees to the JEE Mentored Reviewer Program. Mentees for the program should be novices in engineering education research such as graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and engineering faculty.  Mentees should display evidence of developing expertise (through formal courses or real-world experiences) in research areas that align with the journal’s mission.  Mentees should have developing expertise in either quantitative or qualitative research methods. Individuals from countries other than the United States are welcome and encouraged to apply.

The Mentored Reviewer Program is a competitive program for both mentors and mentees.  All mentors and mentees will be acknowledged at the ASEE annual meeting and will receive a certificate recognizing their accomplishments through their participation in the program during the previous year.  Mentees will be asked to participate in an online training with their mentors and JEE editors that will include an introduction to JEE and an overview of expectations for reviews.  During the mentorship period (approximately 6 months), mentors and mentees will be asked to work together on approximately three article reviews.  A scaffolded approach to the review process will be provided allowing the mentee to gain more independence by the final review.  To the extent possible, mentors and mentees will be matched based on expertise. For more information on the program, please contact Lisa Benson at lbenson@clemson.edu, or visit our website: https://cecas.clemson.edu/jee/.

The application for mentees is available at: https://tinyurl.com/JEEMentoredReviewMentee.  Applications are due by December 11, 2020.

Student Division Newsletter, October 2020

Happy October, Student Division!

 

Halloween is just around the corner, but just as scary is that many of our semesters are now half-way through!  I know I’m not alone in feeling like time has flown by this semester.  Although it’s especially important in these trying times that we step away from the screens and devices to enjoy the (mostly) pleasant fall weather, it’s also important to take time and celebrate those in our communities who may not be getting the visibility or recognition they deserve.  October marks two awareness months designated to recognize just that: National Disability Employment Awareness Month and LGBT History Month.  In line with our division’s DEI initiatives this year, our Diversity Chair Thant Soe has put together an awesome infographic with details about National Disability Employment Awareness Month.  Our book club is also ongoing, about which you can find more information in the announcements below.

 

As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Adrianne (ajwheele@gmail.com) or Cassie (cswood@umich.edu) with any questions or concerns regarding the division or the annual conference, or to Skyler (me@skylerausten.com) with questions about adding a listing to our monthly newsletter.

The second book will be selected based on the members’ recommendations.

 

We would like to start off with Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez. Current and future engineers need to be informed about the impact of their designs when gender differences are not considered. Especially when machine learning and artificial intelligence shape our future, we should all learn about the data content that is being considered. This book exposes the gender data gap – a gap in our knowledge that is at the root of perpetual, systemic discrimination against women, which means everyone because male engineers can have mothers, wives, sisters, daughters who are also affected by this.

 

The book will be divided into two sections; thus, we will have two meetings during Fall:

(1) Daily Life and the Workplace (Chapters 1-6) will explore workplace discrimination, gender bias in academia, public transportation, influence of motherhood on career, brilliance bias.

 

(2) Design, Health, and Policies (Chapters 7-16) will explore data correlations and gender, data programming, tech companies, future technology design development, medical research methodology, diagnosing females, recognizing the cost of female gender roles, and policies for inclusivity.

 

If you are interested in signing up, please fill out this short survey. If you have any questions, please e-mail ms3297@drexel.edu.

  1. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Diversity Book Club

 

ASEE Student Division would like to start a book club to explore diversity issues experienced in engineering. We will cover two books in the academic year. During these club meetings, we will invite ASEE diversity researchers to be there to relate it back to engineering and engineering education research. The second book will be selected based on the members’ recommendations.

 

We would like to start off with Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez. Current and future engineers need to be informed about the impact of their designs when gender differences are not considered. Especially when machine learning and artificial intelligence shape our future, we should all learn about the data content that is being considered. This book exposes the gender data gap – a gap in our knowledge that is at the root of perpetual, systemic discrimination against women, which means everyone because male engineers can have mothers, wives, sisters, daughters who are also affected by this.

 

The book will be divided into two sections; thus, we will have two meetings during Fall:

(1) Daily Life and the Workplace (Chapters 1-6) will explore workplace discrimination, gender bias in academia, public transportation, influence of motherhood on career, brilliance bias.

 

(2) Design, Health, and Policies (Chapters 7-16) will explore data correlations and gender, data programming, tech companies, future technology design development, medical research methodology, diagnosing females, recognizing the cost of female gender roles, and policies for inclusivity.

Walter Lee and Sarah Rodriguez. We invite those working in this area to submit original papers that focus on social and political identities (e.g., race, gender, class, sexual orientation, disability) that are structurally linked to systems of oppression. Articles should focus on one or more aspects of the STEM higher education system (e.g., policy, structure, pedagogy, course content, ecology) and may address any combination of undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, and/or faculty in a range of higher education contexts (e.g., community colleges, minority-serving institutions, rural).

 

We will accept the following types of papers: (1) Position Papers presenting an arguable opinion, plan of action, or agenda; (2) Methods Papers interrogating methodologies, approaches, or techniques; and (3) Theory Papers interrogating frameworks, conceptual models, or paradigms. Questions to consider include: How might we better use theories to promote equity in STEM higher education? What research methods are best suited for generating the sorts of insights needed to promote equity in STEM higher education? How might we reconceptualize how we design a STEM curriculum? What lines of inquiry should be prioritized by social scientists and education researchers focused on equity in STEM higher education? If you are uncertain about the suitability of an idea, please ask one of the guest editors.

 

The due date for abstracts is October 9th, 2020. Please see the Call for Papers for additional information: https://tinyurl.com/JWMThemedIssue

An EER graduate degree will provide students with career opportunities in academia, nonprofit organizations, and industry. More information about the program is available at our EER website (https://eer.engin.umich.edu/).

 

We will be hosting a Virtual EER Prospective Student Open House on Thursday and Friday, 10/08/20 and 10/09/20 via Zoom (zoom link will be e-mailed prior to the meeting). Students from all institutions are invited to attend. Participants will hear about the program, meet faculty and graduate students, tour (virtually) the beautiful University of Michigan campus, and learn about career opportunities as a UM graduate in this field. Note that applicants to the EER graduate program must have Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in a traditional engineering discipline.

Please register to attend at this open house registration site (https://umich.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6o3uvit5UsOu52R), and please forward this link to any friends who may be interested. E-mail us for more information at eerprogram@umich.edu.

 

Can’t make it to the open house but are interested in applying? Visit the EER website (https://eer.engin.umich.edu/) to learn more about the graduate program. We hope you will consider UM as you decide to pursue your graduate studies in engineering education.
