Industry and the world at large is becoming an ever-connected state where there is greater importance on atypical collaboration. The type of collaboration needed is radical in nature. Radical collaboration for a first-year engineering education curriculum needs to focus on effective learning strategies. This type of collaboration includes timely intervention by instructors, ease of learning for students, and access to professional level tool sets. All of which can create a platform for more engaging and effective peer-to-peer collaboration among students from different branches of engineering, design, and business. Cloud collaboration is a way for distributed, virtual teams to work efficiently on a common project. This workshop will teach faculty the benefits of cloud collaboration using an Autodesk Inc. product, Fusion 360, and the collaborative systems embedded within the platform. The workshop will entail four elements: (1) Pre-Workshop Signup/Team Formation, (2) A Case Study, (3) Interactive Design Session, and (4) Question and Answer segment. The goal of the workshop is for faculty to feel excited and empowered to implement new technology into their engineering design projects and have students who are novice in 3D modeling increase their skills dramatically. Faculty will leave with a handbook guiding them through the process of utilizing Fusion 360 in their design-based courses with examples and assessment tools to use.
