Presenters for ASEE Special Session – Research on Engineering Practice: Catalyzing the Next Generation of Scholars

The organizing team for the NSF sponsored “Research on Engineering Practice: Catalyzing a Scholarly Community” collaborative conference grant (EEC – 18833055, 1833113, 1833124, 1854814) invites early career scholars who conduct research on engineering practice and / or its connections to engineering education to apply to present in an ASEE Special Session.

The special session will take place during the 2020 American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference on Monday, June 22, 2020, from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Each selected early career scholar will present as a panelist, giving a brief, 5-minute lightning talk to introduce themselves and their work to a growing scholarly community focused on research on engineering practice. The scholars will then display a poster about a project and their broader research and career interests related to engineering practice, for feedback, ideas, and support from session attendees.

PhD students, postdoctoral scholars, and early career research scientists or faculty members who conducted research on engineering practice and / or its connections to engineering education are encouraged to apply. A travel stipend of $700 will be offered to each selected panelist. Up to 6 panelists will be selected.

Applicants should submit:

A brief statement (1 page max.) about a project the applicant is currently undertaking or has recently completed related to engineering practice and / or its connections to engineering education. (This can be a project conducted individually or in collaboration with others.)
A brief statement (1 page max.) on the applicant’s general research and career interests related to engineering practice and how the applicant’s participation in this panel session has potential to advance their interests.
A 2-page version of the applicant’s resume or curriculum vitae (please include a listing of your papers or posters that have been accepted for the 2020 ASEE Annual Conference).

Applications are due on March 13, 2020 and should be submitted using the form available at: https://asuengineering.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_brbErG13eZ4tUON. Participants will be notified about their selection no later than March 31, 2020. Please direct questions to Samantha Brunhaver at samantha.brunhaver@asu.edu.
