How do your philosophy of teaching and your philosophy of engineering intersect? Even if left unsaid, our views on the “proper” purpose and principles of engineering work are partially communicated through how we teach. It’s better to be purposeful in how we design our courses and how we communicate with students.
Part pedagogy, part philosophy, this workshop will help participants articulate their own philosophies of engineering and develop an understanding of how that can improve their teaching. Participants are encouraged to bring course outlines, past teaching statements, or other elements of their courses to be discussed.
This workshop is for any engineering educator looking to revise their teaching statement or revisit how to incorporate a philosophy of engineering in their courses.
This Workshop is sponsored by
Technology and Engineering Literacy/Philosophy of Engineering (TELPhE)
New Engineering Educators (NEE)
Liberal Education/Engineering & Society (LEES)
