Sun. June 23, 2013 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Ticketed event: $45.00
This workshop is facilitated by three experienced First-Year Engineering Educators and offers a collaborative environment for people that work on First-Year Engineering Programs to discuss key issues for their programs. Participants will create groups based on similarity of program structure (such as common first-Year course or discipline specific) and also institution/program size. Specific areas for structured discussion include:
• Approaches for student discipline selection
o How does your program help first-year engineering students to select or confirm their engineering discipline?
o What are the methods your program uses to create a positive environment for students to develop an engineering identity?
• Program Coordination
o What are the roles of the instructional team for your program’s First-Year Engineering Program?
o Instructors, faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, advisors, etc.
o Grading approach, responsibilities, etc.
o Standardized assignments
• Program Content
o Computer programming
o Discipline specific projects
o Technical communication
Workshop participants will be asked to share the aspects of First-Year Engineering programs that have been particularly successful (or unsuccessful) at their institutions. Collaboration in this way is designed to offer the opportunity develop a network among First-Year Engineering educators that will extend beyond the workshop/ASEE 2013.
