Ask for input from audience. Validate. Then move to EDUCON slide where Areas nicely capture important themes
I’d like to start by stating three key points. These key points help to motivate the rest of the presentation. (advance slide) First, all engineering educators are working toward goal of helping students form a better future society. Engineering educators should continue their own education about teaching so that they constantly improve their teaching skills. High quality teaching empowers students. From EDUCON website “ modern learning approaches must account for social and cultural aspects as well as the individual’s profile including task and role-based aspects, interests, knowledge state, short-term learning objectives and long-term career goals.” (advance slide ) Second, the pace of technology growth has made the world a much smaller and interconnected place. Engineering students should be exposed to global social context so that they can gain an understanding of worldwide needs. ( advance slide) Finally, continuing education ensures lifelong growth of personal skills and social understanding. Engineering educators must also participate in continuing education so that they are best prepared for the challenges ahead. EDUCON is an excellent example of this. EdSoc is a great place to work on this.
Peer Networking meet others that share your passions form collaboration teams to work on projects build relationships between your group and others share what your successful strategies with others be recognized for the work you do
The IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization. The organization has three guiding principles: advance slide : The first is to advance innovation so that society continues to move forward. Without innovation we can never hope to solve the problems that face us. advance slide : The second is to ensure technical excellence by providing standards and training to the community of practicing engineers in the organizations fields of interest. advance slide : The third is to benefit the worldwide community by working to establish relationships and communities of peers around the globe. advance slide : The organization has a very broad set of practicing engineers because the fields of interest are engineered systems that use electricity to do work. From aerospace to oceanographic vehicles, electrical power to telecommunications, biomedical systems and robotics, computers and information security, the list goes on and on.
IEEE has grown to be Standards to enforce quality design practice, ensure interoperability and marketability, global Networking millions of people each year
Ask the audience why a society for teacher’s should exist. Get their responses and validate them.
Ask the audience why a society for teacher’s should exist. Get their responses and validate them.
Topics: Engineering Education, primarily at the university level K-12 and Engineering Technology Typically held in the U.S. in October
Note that not all awards require you to be a society member. Note that the distinguished lecture program exists. Describe it and how it could be used by members.
Continuing the initial focus on industry/academia cooperation, publications, conferences. EdSoc has evolved since founding in 1957 but stayed true to initial aims of its founders.
Be sure to note some of the challenges engineering educations are facing worldwide. Include: Bologna process in Europe Wordwide accreditation bodies and skill set recognition Humanitarian work in developing countries Technical literacy in the internet era Population decline in developed countries and the shift toward smaller employee sets
