Conference Highlights

M204 - Main Plenary I - Expanding Participation in ASEE

Monday, June 24
Georgia World Congress Center, B-Thomas Murphy Ballroom
8:45 am - 10:15 am

The Main Plenary is traditionally the most highly anticipated session at the ASEE Annual Conference, with more than 2,000 attendees enjoying this important keynote address. Join your friends, colleagues, and industry partners for the official kickoff of the 120th Annual Conference and Exposition.

In what promises to be a thought-provoking talk, Al Gomez describes the perils and opportunities confronting higher education today: By 2020, a decline in white and African American enrollment could mean billions of dollars in losses. Yet institutions could reap even greater sums by making higher education more accessible to a growing population of Hispanic, Asian, and Native American students. These cost-conscious students will go where it makes the most sense, but will need multiple pathways to success, including for late bloomers. Drawing examples from Wisconsin, Gomez urges a removal of barriers to exploring STEM careers; increased emphasis on STEM for all learners; closer coordination between K-12 and higher education systems, and stronger connections between two- and four-year colleges.

W335 - Open Access and Open Educational Resources: The Internet’s Growing Role in Scientific Communication and Education 

Sponsored by Engineering Libraries Division

Session Description

Engineers have been at the forefront of two movements for change inspired by the Internet’s growth: the movements for Open Access and the Open Educational Resources. They were launched by advocates who realized that the open web is the best platform for sharing the results of scientific and scholarly research and the resources used for learning in both formal and informal settings. MIT, Rice University, Carnegie Mellon University and others have played leading roles in promoting use of the open Internet. The past decade has seen significant progress for both movements, but much work remains to be done before the Internet’s full potential for improving scholarly communication and the use of educational resources has been realized. In particular, intellectual property issues have loomed large.

Professor Carroll will describe the goals of each movement, their history to date, and the possibilities and challenges that lie ahead for better adapting scholarly and educational publishing to the Internet’s potential. As an expert in intellectual property law, he will explain the role of the law in current publishing practices and how open licenses are critical components of both Open Access and Open Educational Resources. His talk will also discuss the relationship between the research literature and the materials used in massively open online courses (MOOCs) that have grown rapidly in the past year. The talk should be of interest to any engineer engaged in teaching or research.

W304 - Student Development: An Alternative to Sink or Swim

Sponsored by ASEE Board of Directors

Session Description

"Sink or Swim." For decades that policy has determined the success or failure of America's first-year engineering students. The general paradigm has been to put up a difficult challenge and "weed out" those students that don't measure up. Fortunately, engineering education in the United States is undergoing a revolution. We are in the process of a shift from the "sink or swim" paradigm to one of "student development." Engineering colleges all across the nation are revising their freshman year curricula with the primary goal of enhancing student success. 

The fundamental idea of the talk is that we are often so anxious to make our new engineering students into engineers that we forget to first make them into engineering students. And that because we don't help our students become effective students, they generally perform below potential with many dropping out or changing majors. Basic concepts of "student development," which is defined as facilitating new students’ growth, change, and development in areas that will enhance their success in engineering study, will be outlined. Specific attitudes and behaviors that need to be changed will be delineated and pedagogical approaches for changing those attitudes and behaviors will be presented.

W348 - Rigor/Us: Merit Standards and Diversity in Engineering Education Research and Practice

Sponsored by Liberal Education/Engineering and Society Division

Session Description

Rigor is the aspirational quality academics apply to standards not only in engineering and engineering education, but in engineering education research. Our distinguished lecturer will critically examine rigor in three arenas:

a) The meaning of rigor across the constitutive disciplines of engineering, examining how standards shift with changes in social and historical context. The speaker will consider what constitutes rigor in relation to ABET learning outcomes, and how a broader conceptualization of rigor might lead to improved student achievement, especially in addressing core competencies such as lifelong learning, teamwork, communication, professional ethics, and design.

b) The emergence of “rigorous engineering education research” with a critical assessment of what this new conceptualization allows, and what it excludes. The speaker will discuss the conditions under which the engineering education research community adopted its current standards of rigor and compare these to standards in engineering and general (higher) education research.

c) “Who are we making engineering hard for?” What is the purpose of our current conceptualization of rigor in engineering and engineering education? In what ways does it promote and limit access to our profession? The speaker will discuss how the notion of rigor can reproduce inequality in upholding certain kinds of graduates as an implied standard in engineering.

For this talk, our distinguished speaker draws on her experiences as an engineering educator teaching in the core engineering science disciplines, and from her research into critical pedagogies as a tool for broadening participation in engineering.

Donna RileyDonna Riley

W335 - Open Access and Open Educational Resources: The Internet’s Growing Role in Scientific Communication and Education 

Sponsored by Engineering Libraries Division

Session Description

Engineers have been at the forefront of two movements for change inspired by the Internet’s growth: the movements for Open Access and the Open Educational Resources. They were launched by advocates who realized that the open web is the best platform for sharing the results of scientific and scholarly research and the resources used for learning in both formal and informal settings. MIT, Rice University, Carnegie Mellon University and others have played leading roles in promoting use of the open Internet. The past decade has seen significant progress for both movements, but much work remains to be done before the Internet’s full potential for improving scholarly communication and the use of educational resources has been realized. In particular, intellectual property issues have loomed large.

Professor Carroll will describe the goals of each movement, their history to date, and the possibilities and challenges that lie ahead for better adapting scholarly and educational publishing to the Internet’s potential. As an expert in intellectual property law, he will explain the role of the law in current publishing practices and how open licenses are critical components of both Open Access and Open Educational Resources. His talk will also discuss the relationship between the research literature and the materials used in massively open online courses (MOOCs) that have grown rapidly in the past year. The talk should be of interest to any engineer engaged in teaching or research.

W304 - Student Development: An Alternative to Sink or Swim

Sponsored by ASEE Board of Directors

Session Description

"Sink or Swim." For decades that policy has determined the success or failure of America's first-year engineering students. The general paradigm has been to put up a difficult challenge and "weed out" those students that don't measure up. Fortunately, engineering education in the United States is undergoing a revolution. We are in the process of a shift from the "sink or swim" paradigm to one of "student development." Engineering colleges all across the nation are revising their freshman year curricula with the primary goal of enhancing student success. 

The fundamental idea of the talk is that we are often so anxious to make our new engineering students into engineers that we forget to first make them into engineering students. And that because we don't help our students become effective students, they generally perform below potential with many dropping out or changing majors. Basic concepts of "student development," which is defined as facilitating new students’ growth, change, and development in areas that will enhance their success in engineering study, will be outlined. Specific attitudes and behaviors that need to be changed will be delineated and pedagogical approaches for changing those attitudes and behaviors will be presented.

Sponsored by Entrepreneurship and Engineering Innovation Division

Session Description

Engineering innovation and entrepreneurship

The world is changing are a staggering pace, resulting in unparalleled opportunities and challenges. As a result, our engineering graduates need the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to see themselves as change agents, and to bring their ideas to life. In this talk, Dr. Tina Seelig will present a new model - the Innovation Engine - that illustrates the factors that are needed to prepare our graduates to unleash their creativity. She shows that just as the scientific method demystifies the process of discovery, their is a formal process for unlocking the pathway to invention

W348 - Rigor/Us: Merit Standards and Diversity in Engineering Education Research and Practice

Sponsored by Liberal Education/Engineering and Society Division

Session Description

Rigor is the aspirational quality academics apply to standards not only in engineering and engineering education, but in engineering education research. Our distinguished lecturer will critically examine rigor in three arenas:

a) The meaning of rigor across the constitutive disciplines of engineering, examining how standards shift with changes in social and historical context. The speaker will consider what constitutes rigor in relation to ABET learning outcomes, and how a broader conceptualization of rigor might lead to improved student achievement, especially in addressing core competencies such as lifelong learning, teamwork, communication, professional ethics, and design.

b) The emergence of “rigorous engineering education research” with a critical assessment of what this new conceptualization allows, and what it excludes. The speaker will discuss the conditions under which the engineering education research community adopted its current standards of rigor and compare these to standards in engineering and general (higher) education research.

c) “Who are we making engineering hard for?” What is the purpose of our current conceptualization of rigor in engineering and engineering education? In what ways does it promote and limit access to our profession? The speaker will discuss how the notion of rigor can reproduce inequality in upholding certain kinds of graduates as an implied standard in engineering.

For this talk, our distinguished speaker draws on her experiences as an engineering educator teaching in the core engineering science disciplines, and from her research into critical pedagogies as a tool for broadening participation in engineering.

Donna RileyDonna Riley
Associate professor of engineering, Smith College.

Donna Riley is associate professor and a founding faculty member in the Picker Engineering Program at Smith College, the first U.S. women’s college to house an engineering program. In 2005 she received an NSF Career award on implementing and assessing critical and feminist pedagogies in engineering classrooms. She holds a B.S.E. in chemical engineering from Princeton University and a Ph.D. in engineering and public policy from Carnegie Mellon University. Riley’s books include Engineering and Social Justice (Morgan and Claypool, 2008) and Engineering Thermodynamics and 21st Century Energy Problems (Morgan and Claypool, 2011). She is the 2012 recipient of the Sterling Olmsted Award from the Liberal Education/Engineering and Society Division of ASEE for “distinguished contributions to the development and teaching of liberal arts in engineering education.”

Donna Riley’s technical research combines methods in engineering and the social sciences to characterize and communicate chemical risk. She seeks to integrate quantitative modeling of chemical risks (from sources to exposure endpoints) with an understanding of the ways in which human beliefs and behavior influence risk. Past projects have involved characterizing the risks of mercury use as part of religious and folk traditions in Latino and Caribbean communities, and developing improved consumer-product warnings. She is currently collaborating with Shizuka Hsieh, associate professor of chemistry at Smith, on developing a community-based air quality research lab serving groups in western Massachusetts.

Riley’s expertise in engineering education includes implementing pedagogies of liberation, based on the work of Paulo Freire, Bell Hooks, and others. Her classes connect course material to student experience, integrate ethics and policy considerations in the context of social justice, and examine civilizations outside the Western (and male) spheres. Her classroom innovations have been compiled into a book of educational modules (Engineering Thermodynamics and 21st Century Energy Problems: A Textbook Companion for Student Engagement, Morgan and Claypool, 2012). She is active in the Engineering, Social Justice and Peace network. Riley is also deputy editor of the Journal of Engineering Education.
