Technological and Engineering Literacy/Philosophy of Engineering
During the ASEE annual conference in summer 2019, the Technological and Engineering Literacy and Philosophy of Engineering (TELPhE) group voted, with the suggestion of our distinguished colleague Alan Cheville, to work on including Social Justice as one of the key focus of the group. Our division has been working on different perspectives and dimensions of that suggestion.
This paper provides observations, discussions, and perspectives on some of the challenges that are facing Engineering and Engineering Education as well as the Technological literacy program regarding the inclusion of social justice. We believe that when seeking avenues and possibilities of such inclusion,it is important to have a division wise discussion and have a deep understanding of the role and position of Social Justice in Engineering, Technological Literacy and in particular, Engineering and technological literacy Educations. As a new generation of engineers and technologist are using, creating, sharing, and expanding the dominance of various technological artifacts in our daily lives in an ever-changing, interconnected global community, it is of utmost importance for engineering educators to focus on educating the future generation with the right perspectives and understanding og of the role of social justice and the danger of ignoring it in our daily lives and our designs.
