Community Engagement Division

Community Engagement Division

Call for Papers: 2017 Annual Conference

The ASEE Division Community Engagement (CED) is soliciting abstracts and papers for the June 2017 ASEE Annual Conference in Columbus, OH. Submitted abstracts and papers can take many forms: theoretical to practical, conceptual to experiential/case study, all with emphasis given to evidence-based papers and presentations.

Community Engagement is an umbrella term for community-based research, humanitarian engineering, service learning, civically-engaged learners, technology-based social entrepreneurship and more. Community organizations (either local or from abroad) partner with institutions of engineering education for the mutual benefit of communities and engineering students. Ideally, student teams and citizens work together on the shared purpose of completing community-identified projects aimed at increasing community assets. The CED is a scholarly community for faculty interested in the various ways engineering students, faculty, institutions, communities, and other stakeholders are impacted through the many different types of CE efforts.

The division is particularly interested in papers that fall into one of two distinct categories: (1) Traditional Research Papers and (2) Engagement in Practice (Work-In-Progress) Papers.

The Traditional Research Papers are full papers/presentations that are research focused and address the assessment of and/or scholarly research on the impacts of community engagement on students, communities, and faculty. Abstracts for this category will be accepted on, but are not limited to, research on the following topics:
• Models of community engagement activities in engineering including design projects and collaborations with co- and extra-curricular activities;
• Scaling community engagement to large numbers and/or high percentages of engineering students;
• Innovative approaches to integrating community-based efforts into the engineering curriculum;
• Building effective community partnerships at both the local and global scale;
• Establishing program sustainability – making programs outlive their founders;
• Lessons learned in implementing community-based educational initiatives;
• Integration of community engagement in a K-12 STEM Setting

The Engagement in Practice Papers are shorter papers (6 pages or less). The structure of the session at the conference will include short presentations (3-5 minutes) with facilitated discussion and sharing. Papers in this category will detail specific community engagement projects (case studies) or efforts that currently do not have a significant collection of data for educational evaluation or assessment. These papers should address key issues such as partnership development, project design, project execution, successes and lessons learned, transferability, etc. Papers in this category will be limited to a length of 6 pages or less including references, yet all other paper requirements for an ASEE conference paper will be maintained. Engagement in Practice papers that are accepted will be grouped into a single session devoted specifically to presenting on-going community engagement projects/efforts. Papers in this category must have Engagement in Practice as the first part of the title of their paper, ex: Engagement in Practice: Lessons Learned from University X’s Engineering Service Learning Program.

Abstracts submitted no later than the closing date announced by ASEE will be evaluated and ranked. Papers selected for presentation must be submitted in accordance with ASEE requirements found on the ASEE website.

Please submit a 200-300 word abstract electronically through the ASEE Conferences website.
Abstracts for Traditional Research Papers should address the following:
• Background and motivation
• Description and justification of methodology
• Results and data analysis including impact on the community where possible
• Conclusions and significance

Abstracts for Engagement in Practice papers should include the following
• Background (including partnership development) and motivation for project
• Project design and execution
• Lessons learned through successes or failures
• Conclusions and next steps

Abstracts and papers are double-blind reviewed. It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that the requirements for double-blind review are met. You should NOT include authors’ names or institutional affiliations in the abstract nor should author names be in the file name or in document properties. You do not need to include references in the abstract. In addition, be sure to indicate that your abstract is for the Community Engagement Division.

ASEE’s paper submission process and timeline are explicit and the program chair CANNOT override them

To create a division rooted in effective learning and engagement, sessions and presentations will be structured to maximize the benefits for speakers and attendees alike. Based on submitted papers, the program chair will craft the best session topics and formats possible.

Since our goal is to create a diverse division program, we are exploring the use of special sessions that optimize audience interactions or bring in invited speakers, as well as sessions that allow hands-on experiences between conference attendees and the local community. This would include proposals for Sunday workshops at the conference on community engagement and/or off-site events. We are open to suggestions and look forward to your input on what and how such special sessions can be added to the program.

If you have any questions about possible paper or special session ideas please contact the program chair:

The International Division is seeking papers for the 2016 ASEE Annual Conference in Columbus, Ohio, to be held June 25-28, 2017. We hope you and your colleagues will participate in this event. It is a great opportunity to have your engineering-related work peer reviewed and published in an internationally known engineering conference. Abstract submission begins on September 6, 2015 and will end in mid October 2016 (please check for updates).

Papers are being solicited with any engineering education area that has an international dimension. That especially includes engineering educators from institutions abroad. An international dimension always adds new and different complexity to the normal challenging world of engineering education. The International division provides that venue to discuss and share these issues with other educators with similar international issues. Common areas are study abroad and travel trips. However our division includes cross cultural diversity, k to 12, first year engineering, ethics, collaborations, ABET and other accreditation as only some of the examples where the international component leads to stimulating discussion and exchanges during our sessions.
The following topics have been identified by International Division members as potential session topics and members are encouraged to submit papers for these sessions:
• Comparison and Assessment of Various Study Abroad Models in Achieving Global Competencies
• Integration of International Programs in the Engineering Curriculum (year long, semester, short-term / study abroad, co-op, and service learning)
• Starting Successful Faculty-Led Programs: Opportunities, Challenges and Risks.
• Domestic Internationalization: Developing Global Competence through On-Campus Activities.
• International Program Development, Language Integration, and Credit Transfer.
• Cross Cultural Diversity
Be advised that, as a contributor to the international division, it is expected that you and your co-author participate in the peer review process. The peer review process is essential to meeting the high publication standard required for Scopus and other registration systems and is part of your professional responsibility to the conference.
Please note, in order for a paper to be accepted for presentation in a technical or poster session and/or for publication in the proceedings, the Division requires submission of the full final version of the paper.

Abstracts should be between 300 and 350 words. Something new: At the top of your abstract, please indicate up to at least three key words that could assist us in developing session topics relevant to your paper.
All abstracts must be submitted via the ASEE web-based submission and paper management system / Monolith program. The Author’s Kit with deadlines and instructions is available through and on the 2017 conference web site. If you are submitting an abstract to the annual conference, you may print a copy of the Author's Kit to assist you with the ASEE paper format and guidelines for abstract submission.
