Dr. Elizabeth T. Cady is a Program Officer at the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), where she facilitates the deployment of innovative policies, practices, and tools designed to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of systems for the formal, informal, and lifelong education of engineers. Since 2009, she has staffed the Frontiers of Engineering Education symposium, which brings together a group of innovative engineering faculty members to recognize their accomplishments in incorporating innovative practices into their teaching, facilitate learning from each other and invited speakers, broaden collaboration across institutions, and promote dissemination of pioneering practice in engineering education. Beth co-edited a collection of resources that translated research on women in science and engineering into short documents containing practical tips for faculty members to incorporate into their classrooms and other interactions with students and is also a co-author of several peer-reviewed conference presentations on engineering education topics such as building skills in project management and change leadership, diversity, and developing communities of practice within engineering education and engineering education research. She currently helps lead a project that will develop a toolkit to guide teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders in the effective implementation of engineering education in K-12. She earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Cognitive and Human Factors Psychology from Kansas State University and a B.A. in psychobiology and political science from Wheaton College in Massachusetts.
