Workshop: GT-ASEE Hosts Interactive Teaching Workshop
Georgia Tech’s Student Chapter of the American Society for Engineering Education (GT-ASEE) held a workshop on June 6th, 2013 titled “Interactive Teaching”. The goal for this workshop was to introduce participants to non-traditional teaching methods and illustrate the effective application of these methods in the classroom. The workshop was funded by CETL through the Tech to Teaching grant. The speakers for the workshop included Dr. Wendy Newstetter, Dr. Carol Subino-Sullivan, Dr. Wayne Whiteman, Dr. Michael Schatz, and Dr. Donna Llewellyn. Wafa Soofi, a GT-ASEE member, facilitated a reflection activity at the start of the workshop. The workshop was attended by over 60 graduate and post-doc students.

Workshop: ASEE-ers Attend Bucknell “How to Engineer Engineering Education” Workshop
Matthew Priddy and Scottie-Beth Fleming attended the Bucknell “How to Engineer Engineering Education” workshop through funding provided by COE and SGA. The 3-day workshop at Bucknell University encompassed a variety of topics to foster engaged learning, including learning objectives, the active learning spectrum, and the different types of assessments. Throughout the workshop, the presenters modeled an “active” classroom by having the participants perform a variety of active learning techniques, such as think-pair-share and minute papers. The workshop culminated with each participant (or groups of participants) making a 10-minute presentation about a portion of a course they would change using their newly gained knowledge.
Outreach: Georgia Tech ASEE Student Chapter Volunteers at LEGO Competition
The Georgia Tech Student Chapter of ASEE volunteered at the Georgia State Championship of the FIRST Lego League 2012 Challenge, which was held on January 26, 2013 on Georgia Tech’s campus in Atlanta, GA. The competition consisted of 48 teams of students, ranging in age from 9 to 14, who had each devised and built their own LEGO Mindstorms robot. The robots competed by completing various tasks on a 4ft x 8ft arena within a time limit of two and a half minutes. The GT-ASEE volunteers set up the competition tables for each team the night before the event and supervised the practice arenas on the day of the competition. The GT volunteers were delighted to see the various robot designs in action while interacting with the competition teams, comprised of future engineers!
Research Expo: Georgia Tech STEM Education Research Expo
The Georgia Tech STEM Education Research Expo was hosted by the GT Student Chapter of ASEE on January 17, 2013 at the Ferst Center for the Arts on Georgia Tech’s campus in Atlanta, GA. More than 80 attendees viewed and discussed over 30 poster presentations from 5 different colleges and 19 different departments with a range of topics including K-12 research, women in engineering, problem-based learning classrooms, and teaching assistant development programs. The Expo also included keynote presentations by Dr. Diley Hernandez, Director of GoSTEM, on “Strengthening the Pipeline of Latino K-12 Students into Post-secondary STEM Education” and Dr. Joe Le Doux, associate professor of Biomedical Engineering, on “The Effects of Problem Solving Studio on Student Learning”. A special thanks to the College of Engineering for generously providing their time, resources, and refreshments to help make this event such a success!
Workshop: Teaching, Scholarship, and Research: Building an Engineering Education Community at Georgia Tech
The College of Engineering and GT-ASEE sponsored an interactive workshop for faculty and graduate students. Its purpose was to learn about designing classroom environments to enhance student learning, explore funding opportunities in engineering education, and investigate possible engineering education research projects. It also served as a function for faculty and graduate students to meet other people on campus who have similar engineering education interests.
