“Where Did the time Go?
A Distinguished Panel Looks at Where We Have Been and Where We are Going
Moderator: Lyle D. Feisel, Dean Emeritus, SUNY Binghamton
Curriculum: Stephanie Adams, Dean of Engineering, Old Dominion University
Educational Theory: Karl Smith, Professor Emeritus, University of Minnesota
Diversity: Donna Riley, Head, School of Engineering Education, Purdue
Three distinguished panelists provide a brief history of ASEE’s activities in three major areas of endeavor and share their thoughts about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
And here are three paragraphs from the three letters I sent you, just for added perspective:
Curriculum - ASEE has a rich history of influencing the direction of the engineering curriculum, particularly through the various reports that have been developed by the Society. We hope your presentation will include an outline of the history of those reports and the effect they have had on what is taught in an engineering program. ASEE’s participation in the activities of ABET will also be of interest. Do you foresee any changes in the future?
Educational Theory - Engineering faculty have not always been interested in the theory of teaching and learning (indeed, many are still not) but that has changed over the years. We hope your presentation can revisit the days when ERM was a voice crying in the wilderness and map the progress of the art and science of teaching in ASEE. Your thoughts on educational technology of the past and what the future might bring would also be of interest.
Diversity - One need not go far into the past to find a time when women and minorities were a rarity in engineering or on the faculties of engineering schools. We hope your presentation can trace ASEE’s efforts to alleviate some of this disparity and also present some information on how the makeup of the engineering workforce has changed over the years. Your thought on what ASEE and the profession could do in this area in the future would also be of interest.
