  • The first of two brief videos based on interviews with leaders in climate adaptation, city management, engineering systems, public engagement, and other key fields, who gathered at the national meeting on “Climate Change and America’s Infrastructure: Engineering, Social, and Policy Challenges,” January 28-30, 2013.
  • This video highlights participant views about the wide range of expertise and public involvement that will be needed to respond adequately to the stresses on engineering systems from climate change. It is designed to enable educators and others to engage with engineers and the public about the numerous challenges, and to stimulate discussion about how to respond.

  • Upcoming Webcast - Report Release Meeting for The Integration of the Humanities and Arts with Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Higher Education: Branches from the Same Tree

    PostedWednesday, April 25, 2018 AT 12:18 PM

    Please join The National Academies for a webcast on Monday, May 7, from 10:30am to 1:30 pm ET to learn about the release of the new report, The Integration of the Humanities and Arts with Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Higher Education: Branches from the Same Tree, which analyzes the benefits of undergraduate and graduate experiences that effectively integrate STEM, Arts, and Humanities. The report is the culmination of a two-year study that examined the evidence behind the assertion that more integrated educational experiences can better prepare graduates for life and work. Learn more about this study and report and register for the webcast.

  • Upcoming Webinar from ASEE: "Developing Ethics Skills in the Classroom"

    PostedWednesday, March 7, 2018 AT 2:04 PM

    The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) will host the webinar "Developing Ethics Skills in the Classroom" on Wednesday, April 11, from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm Eastern Time.

    Webinar Description:
    Knowing what is right (moral development) and doing the right thing on a particular occasion (moral behavior) do not always align. Contextual factors can greatly influence how engineers choose to apply their ethical standards. Engineering education should help future engineering professionals identify and navigate complex ethical situations in the workplace and beyond. In this webinar, Daniel D. Burkey and Michael F. Young (University of Connecticut) will describe a Cards Against Humanity-like card game that faculty can employ in the classroom to encourage students’ awareness of contextual ethics decisions and create a large classroom context for discussing complex issues of engineering ethical dilemmas.

    This webinar is free but registration is required...
