Integrating Design and Community Engagement within the Curriculum Workshop

Sponsored by EPICS, EWB-USA, and EFELTS
June 19-20, 2014 (immediately following the 2014 ASEE Conference)
Purdue University (65 mi north of Indianapolis-transportation from downtown Indianapolis provided)

This workshop is an exciting opportunity to learn about integrating community-inspired design and community engagement experiences into your engineering curriculum from experienced facilitators from EWB-USA, the EPICS Program and the Engineering Faculty Engagement in Learning Through Service (EFELTS) project.  In addition, you will interact with other similarly motivated faculty and take practical, constructive steps in developing or refining the design, management, and assessment of community engagement efforts. Although we will explore the broader Learning Through Service experiences in engineering, the focus of this workshop is on equipping participants to integrate their vision of community engagement into the curriculum within their institution's context in a way that provides measurable benefit to all stakeholders
 
Limited space available. Registrations accepted up to Monday, May 19, 2014 or when spaces are filled. Registration details and more information about this event at http://www.conf.purdue.edu/landing_pages/epicsdesign/

By participating in this online workshop, educators will get the opportunity to:

  • receive free training in a user-friendly environment with 24/7 technical support;
  • gain fundamental knowledge of computer science through online lectures, discussion sessions and live labs in Google Hangout through one or both of two tracks: software and hardware;
  • discover state-of-the-art computing technologies through collegiate-level instruction from terminal degree faculty with extensive teaching and computing experience;
  • receive tools and resources to better prepare high school students for college majors related to computers/computing;
  • learn content aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) standards; and
  • gain professional development hours.

Some educators will be selected for post-workshop activities where they will apply CS4HS knowledge in their respective classrooms. These selected participants could be eligible for a $150 stipend upon submitting a final report.
