Executive Board Nominations

The ASEE Student Division is accepting nominations for Executive Board positions.  Members of the executive board represent students at the division-level of ASEE and plan conference and year-round activities for ASEE student members. We are looking for individuals to fill the following positions:
  • Program Chair
  • Secretary/Treasurer
  • Co-Program Chairs*
  • Student Chapter Chair
  • Information Chair*
  • Membership Chair*
* Denotes positions are under consideration for slightly revised duties in the future, but the current descriptions are a good starting place.
You can find information regarding what these positions are at http://students.asee.org/?page_id=10, and you can contact Stephen Secules secules@gmail.com if you have any other questions. This is a great opportunity to get involved with ASEE and influence the future of engineering education research and practice. The election will be in June at the 2016 ASEE Annual Conference.  There is not, however, a requirement to attend ASEE in order to place yourself in nomination for a position.
To nominate yourself or another person (please confirm they are interested first!), please send the candidate’s name and a explanation of their qualifications and interest in running for the office in an email to SD Chair Stephen Secules at secules@gmail.com .  We request that all email nominations are submitted by June 18th in order to assemble the necessary materials.

Seeking Moderators

We are quickly approaching our ASEE National Conference, and we are so looking forward to seeing everyone there. As the conference approaches, we will be looking for people to help moderate our sessions. Moderators help make sure that the presentations in sessions stay on time and keep the sessions organized. If you are willing to help moderate any of our 4 technical sessions this year, please email Danielle Grimes at cdg192@msstate.edu. Our sessions’ times and dates are listed below:

Sunday June 25 11:30-1  Student Division Early Introduction to Engineering Technical Session
Tuesday June 27 3:15-4:45 Student Division Innovative Research Methods Technical Session
Wednesday June 28 11:30-1 Student Division Diversity and Persistence Related Technical Session
Wednesday June 28 1:30-3 Student Division Development of Professional Skills Technical Session

Engineering Education Graduate Research Consortium: Call for Posters

Posters are a great way for students to present preliminary work and works in progress to their peers and other experts. The Student Division will be partnering with other divisions to create in order to incite greater feedback to students. We encourage all graduate students* conducting or exploring engineering education research to submit to it in order to take advantage of the expert advice that will be provided by faculty and researchers from around the country. Perhaps you will be presenting elsewhere in the conference on work led by your advisor or planning to attend the conference solely as an attendee; however, this session is a great opportunity for you to put your own research initiatives forward and get feedback and advice from experienced engineering education faculty, researchers, and other graduate students on your work.  In addition to providing you with the opportunity to speak with the experts in your research area, this session is a venue to present to and engage with the general ASEE attendee audience. Topics of interest are open to all areas of research in engineering education. Possible research directions include (but are not limited to):


  • Assessment
  • Collaboration
  • Design
  • Diversity and Equity
  • Educational Technology
  • Instruction
  • Learning Outcomes
  • Professional Practice
  • Recruitment and Retention
  • Identity and Culture


For further ideas in each topic area, see: http://taxonomy.engin.umich.edu/activities/2013-fie-draft-taxonomy-v5/ ..


Posters submitted to the Student Division Engineering Education Graduate Research Consortium DO NOT require a full paper for acceptance. Similar to a conference paper submission, students will be asked to submit an abstract of 250-500 words, which will reviewed in a double-blind peer review. If an abstract is accepted, the authors must submit a PDF of their poster for subsequent peer review. Both the abstract and final poster must be accepted to present at the conference. For more information about formatting and abstract submissions, see: (http://www.asee.org/conferences-and-events/conferences/annual-conference/2016).

Abstract Submissions Deadline Has Been Extended!

ASEE Student Division Conference Guide

The kind folks with the Georgia Tech student chapter have put together a comprehensive guide for the 2013 ASEE Annual Conference!

Please reference the document below for any of your travel and safety concerns, as well as for food and sightseeing! Additionally, here are two maps of Atlanta that may be useful (Downtown and Midtown and near the Georgia World Congress Center)!

Student Division Call for Papers and Posters

Announcing this year’s call for papers and posters! Much like last year, the paper session will focus on Tricks of the Trade. Here, we invite students to submit papers that address problems, issues, and experiences related to succeeding within undergraduate or graduate school and enhancing use and proliferation of robust educational research methods within engineering education.

We are doing something much different with the poster session than what has been done in previous years. The poster session will be related to students’ future research and/or proposed dissertation research. The purpose of this feedback-focused poster session is to connect students with faculty and other students who can provide feedback on the proposed research. During this session, students will have the opportunity to present their proposed research and to gain insightful feedback from experts within the numerous fields and areas of interest within engineering regarding their work. Topics of interest are wide open, related to all areas of research in engineering education.

The poster session is just one of the many ways that the officers in the Student Division are trying to enhance the scholarly work of our students and to create a niche for our division at the conference.

All students are encouraged to participate in the poster session and/or paper session. The abstract submission deadline is September 21, 2012.

Workshop: Engineering Education Workshop

Are you interested in expanding your knowledge and skills in conducting high-quality engineering education research? If so, EXPLORING HOW PEOPLE LEARN ENGINEERING, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, is a workshop that may be for you.

The workshop, intended for those with prior experience in engineering education research, will be held in Golden, Colorado USA on August 1-3, 2011. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

1) describe relevant psychological models of student learning
2) apply these models to learning engineering
3) develop a substantive engineering education research question
4) develop a theory-based research plan to answer the research question.

All costs during the workshop (hotel, food, workshop materials) will be paid by the project. Participants must pay for their own travel expenses to and from Golden, Colorado.

More information and an on-line application form may be found at: http://rree.csmspace.com/

The EHPLE workshop is part of a larger NSF-funded project entitled “Expanding and Substaining Research Capacity in Engineering and Technology Education: Building on Successful Programs for Faculty and Graduate Students,” with Ruth Streveler from Purdue as PI. Information about the larger program can be found at: http://CLEERhub.org

If you have questions, please contact Ron Miller at rlmiller@mines.edu
