Colleges of Engineering and Colleges of Education: Successful Campus Collaborations
Douglas Gorham Manager, Pre-college Education IEEE Educational Activities Barbara Coburn Stoler Acting Managing Director IEEE Educational Activities
Abstract With the growing influence and increasing complexity of technology, the public must have a certain level of technological understanding to make informed decisions and to attain a reasonable quality of life. It is crucial that current and future teachers have the resources, skills, knowledge and support to empower students to make informed decisions as citizens, consumers, and as members of the workforce. Colleges of Engineering and Colleges of Education can lead in this effort. These collaborations will not only help future and current teachers acquire the necessary skills to teach technologically oriented subject matter, but can support engineering faculty with curricula reform and educational outreach. This session will feature: 1) a summary of “Taking the Lead: A Deans Summit on Education For a Technological World” attended by Deans of Engineering and Deans of Education, from the same institution, and 2) representatives from up to four universities discussing successful campus collaborations between Colleges of Engineering and Colleges of Education that have impacted the pre- college education community and engineering curricula reform.
Background The need for a technologically literate citizenry is increasing with the rapid innovations occurring in technology. Pre-college schools and districts are not able to stay abreast of these innovations. Engineers have been responsible for many of these innovations. It seems logical that by working together, university engineering schools and education schools are in a position to impact the level of technological literacy among pre-college students and current and future teachers and engineers.
Deans Summit Overview Held in Baltimore on 1-2 October 2001, Taking the Lead: A Deans Summit on Education for a Technological World was the first time that Deans of Engineering and Deans of Education have formally met with the express purpose of formulating on-campus collaborations. Deans of Engineering and Deans of Education are in key positions to reflect the concerns of their faculty and to promote collaborative programs at their institutions. They can facilitate a variety of joint ventures that can help to prepare
