As you probably have noticed, ASEE released a new logo this summer. The SD current logo uses the old ASEE logo (for the SD logo, check out the blog here), so a new logo design is needed! We are free to be as creative as we want — ASEE doesn’t have any particular requirements, so we can use the tri-fold shape, the acronym, both, or neither. The current logos are in JPEG format, so that is preferred, but other formats will be accepted. Please send any logo ideas/designs to Sarah Robb at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Congratulations to the officers who were elected during the ASEE 2014 Annual Conference. More information on the Student Division officers for the 2014-2015 term is below the cut:
Jeremi London, a Ph.D. candidate in engineering education at Purdue University and a member of ASEE’s Student Division, was the opening speaker at a workshop entitled “What is the Role of MOOCs in Engineering Education” on June 15, the first day of ASEE’s annual conference in Indianapolis.
Currently an intern in the Division of Undergraduate Education at the National Science Foundation, she has been involved in an effort to identify research questions that explore the potential for MOOCs in engineering and in improving learning. NSF, she said, thinks engineering educators’ approach to MOOCs “should be strategic — not reactive.” The ASEE workshop was the third in a series seeking to spur research collaborations. Learn more about the project here.
ASEE’s 2014 Annual Conference is underway in Indianapolis, June 15 to 18. Know what’s going on, even if you’re not there — read below the about interesting sessions and speakers, papers, contests, and more!
The Student Division
The Student Division is hosting sessions on each day of the conference, starting with a Student Division social on Monday to introduce new and existing members.The division is also hosting many sessions covering topics such as:
Chair – Katie Nelson
Program Chair – Gurlovleen Rathore
The Student Division is excited about this year’s upcoming conference. The Student Division Program Chair, Gurlovleen Rathore, and Co-Program Chair, Cassandra Groen, focused on two approaches to better meet the needs of our members. These approaches included an emphasis on the importance of finding and recruiting new students to become a part of our membership, and on increasing our connections with other ASEE Divisions and Engineering Education groups.
