  • Origins of title: IEEE talk in Dublin sponsored by friends from IBM
    Rolling Stones Emotional Rescue came on radio.
    Synchronicity: unrelated events coming together at propitious times.
    Many events in history of OIP synchronicity in this sense.
  • Story about how engineering lost its way.
    Use StarTrek.
    Scotty was the engineer: Resourceful, creative, and whole (logical and emotional).
  • How did the cold, blood science officer, Spock, become the poster child for the ideal engineer.
    Was the science officer (not the engineer)
  • World-War 2 myth: Science won the war (bomb/radar).
  • World War 2 reality: Engineering won the war (P-51, Liberty ship, engineering, manufacturing, logistical prowess.
    Liberty Ships: 16 shipbuilding yards, 230 down to 42 days each, 2751 made
  • P-51
  • Paradigm of engineering education not fixed on rational grounds.
    Origins are status origins.
  • Odd Couple of biblical proportions. Carravaggio David and Goliath
  • Beauty and the beast
  • Or given what we’re doing perhaps the metaphor of “Wedding crasher” is more apt
    But
  • EotF 2.0 – April 2009 at Olin College
    Theme of transformation.
  • Elephant, Rider, and path: Emotion, Rational, and Organizational change. Three eigenvectors of effective change.
  • One approach to curriculum reform is to build a new campus & school. Olin Foundation
  • iFoundry as organizational change.
    2 keys:
    Pilot incubator for curriculum/program change. Permit change with connections to all departments.
    Respect faculty governance. Get pilot permission from the dept. and go back to faculty for vote after pilot change.
  • Rider
  • Olin Effect: Elephant at Olin
    Went to Franklin W. Olin College first time February 2008.
    A moving experience: Talked to freshmen during heat-sink measurements.
    Pride in design-build prowess: Engineering identity.
    Confidence.
    Assertion of personal aspirations & initiative.
    Envisioned distant day when we might get Olin effect at Illinois.
  • 22 August 2009 was iLaunch.
    1-hour course on missing basics + extracurricular iCommunity, student-run virtual learning community, & mastery time sequence
    iLaunch signaled different kind of program.
    3 Joys: Joy of engineering, community & learning.
    Unified by the missing basics.
    Within student-run community of learners: iCommunity.
    But it wasn’t all smooth
  • Elephant at Illinois
    Students started to assert themselves as free men and women and as engineers:
    6 students go to NextGen conference.
    3 students apply and get accepted to TEC Silicon Valley trip.
    Student rearranges finals to go to Indonesia with NUS students.
    Student networks with Cory Levy to get VC interview in Colorado.
    8 students visited Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill.
    Student starts passionate pursuits brown-bag series.
    Student invites IDEO lecturer to campus.
  • A key reason reform fails is economics. At research university
  • Let the games begin
  • Transcript

    • 1. The Emotional Rescue of Engineering Education: Why Unleashing Student Engagement is Crucially Important David E. Goldberg Olin-Illinois Partnership (OIP) & Alliance for Promoting Innovation in Engineering Education (aPIE2) Urbana, IL 61801 deg@illinois.edu; www.apie2.org
    • 2. My Job Right Now • Answer two questions: – What is connection of Engineer of the Future 3.0 to EotF1.0 and EotF2.0? – What is connection of Dan Pink & Drive to • EotF3.0 and • Unleashing Student Engagement in and for the Transformation of Engineering Education? • Stimulate thinking and doing, reliance on appropriate extrinsic & intrinsic motivation.
    • 3. Synchronicity
    • 4. Paradigm: Math-Science Death March
    • 5. EotF1.0 2007: Bill Wulf & Sherra Kerns
    • 6. iFoundry Launch 9.5.2008
    • 7. OIP Signing 9.12.2008
    • 8. EotF2.0 2009: Transformation & Change
    • 9. iFoundry as Incubator 20
    • 10. Rider at Olin: Olin Triangle
    • 11. Rider at UIUC: The Missing Basics • “The basics” = math, science, and engineering science. • Reflections on 20 years senior design. • After 4 years students don’t know how to – Question: Socrates 101. – Label: Aristotle 101. – Model conceptually: Hume 101 & Aristotle 102. – Decompose: Descartes 101. – Experiment/Measure: Bacon-Locke 101. – Visualize/draw: da Vinci-Monge 101. – Communicate: Newman 101 Socrates (470-399 BC)
    • 12. The Olin Effect
    • 13. Fa09 & iLaunch: The Students are Coming
    • 14. Bumps, Confusion, then Demos & iCheckpoint • Students: What do you want us to do? • iFoundry staff: Don’t know. What do you want to do? • Then steam engines worked. • iCheckpoint held. • Something seemed to click. • Jaime Kelleher: “Weren’t sure you were serious about us doing what we wanted to do, but then realized you were, and it was very cool.”
    • 15. AAAs: Aspirationally Assertive Acts
    • 16. The Olin Effect at Illinois! • But how? – Weren’t able to change the whole curriculum. – Weren’t able to build new buildings. – Weren’t able to remake the classrooms. – Weren’t able overhaul the teaching or teachers. • Did one-hour course + iCommunity? Seems like too little. Olin Effect at Illinois
    • 17. Power for Change in Students • How could so little do so much? • Tapped into the power of intrinsic motivation. • Threefold model: – Autonomy – Mastery – Purpose
    • 18. Why So Important? • Achieve alignment with best industry practices. • Get more students to become engineers. • Get higher quality category creators. • Overcome unfavorable economics of engineering education reform.
    • 19. Goldberg-Laffer Curve
    • 20. What Can We Do? • Intrinsic motivation with and without training wheels. Inject autonomy, mastery & purpose into culture & curriculum in increasing amounts. • Student power and light. Make students part of transformation team. Trust them to do big jobs. • Incubate and cooperate. Make innovation an ongoing activity between and among departments. • Share & pair. Suspend intercollegiate rivalry. Make your own odd couple. Pair with rival. Pair with complement. But work with another school. • Come together. Alliance for Innovation in Engineering Education meant to be loose, active alliance of the willing. Don’t need another ASEE. Need active collaboration & learning.
    • 21. Bottom Line “I'll be your savior, steadfast and true, I'll come to engineering education’s emotional rescue.” • Have reviewed history of early EotFs. • Have considered the organizational, conceptual, and motivational change at Olin and Illinois. • Emphasized missing emotional component. • Day designed as celebration and exploration of intrinsic motivation in engineering education.
