American Society of Engineering Education 2014 Workshop

Saturday, June 14, 2014
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Indianapolis Convention Center, Indianapolis, Indiana


Proposals are now being accepted. The proposal deadline is January 24, 2014.


This daylong program for teachers and engineering educators from Indiana and across the country will provide an energizing, interactive overview of successful engineering education instruction for the K-12 classroom that – among many other attributes – emphasizes the development of engineering habits of mind (e.g., creativity, teamwork, optimism, systems thinking, persistence). Attendees will: learn engaging hands-on lessons and interactive activities to share with students, receive takeaway materials ready for use in the classroom, and have opportunities to network with other engineering educators.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS:

Workshop Proposals may be submitted for review November 8, 2013 – January 24, 2014.

  •     provide take-home or classroom-ready materials, in addition to written materials
  •     engage participants in interactive exercises
  •     explicitly feature strategies, activities and/or curricula that encourage two or more engineering habits of mind

All workshops must be linked to national standards (e.g., the ITEEA Technological Literacy Standards, the Next Generation Science Standardsthe Common Core State Standards in Mathematics).In particular, we are seeking proposals addressing elementary/primary grades or demonstrated methods for involving practicing engineers and engineering students in the classroom. Note that presenters must register and pay the registration fee to support their workshop attendance and audio/video costs.

CONFERENCE REGISTRATION:

Early online registration – for attendees and presenters – opens December 6, 2013 and closes May 30, 2104.
