Abstract

In an increasingly technology dependent society, the need for a technologically literate citizenry is becoming a basic necessity. 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 Education can take a leadership role in this effort. Fostering collaborations between engineering and education will not only assist future and current teachers acquire the necessary skills to teach technologically oriented subject matter, but can help engineering faculty with curricula reform, educational outreach and instructional approaches for the classroom. This panel session will feature: 1) a summary of Deans Summit II: Fostering Campus Collaborations attended by deans and faculty from colleges of education and engineering, and 2) representatives from up to three universities discussing successful campus collaborations between Colleges of Engineering and Education that have impacted teacher preparation, outreach to the pre-college community, and engineering curricula reform.
