The proposed Community Engagement Blueprint Workshop focuses on the development of new community engagement (CE) programs, or the enhancement of an existing program, for engineering education. These programs are often referred to as service-learning, community-engaged learning, learning-through-service, etc. and involve various pedagogies that partner students, faculty, and community leaders in collaboration around a community’s needs. Community engagement programs may be curricular or extra-curricular, domestic or international, and may be structured in a variety of ways, but centers on authentic ... (continued)

Our learning goals for participants in this session are to:
o Assist them in recognizing struggles students have with creative idea generation
o Teach them how to use Design Heuristics to aid idea generation
o Help them plan the integration of Design Heuristics into their own courses.
Students often have difficulty generating multiple creative ideas for design problems. “Design Heuristics” is an empirically derived and validated approach to product design ideation; our research has shown that concepts created by engineering students who used Design Heuristics were more complex, creative designs.

Facilitators will conduct a half-day workshop that builds educators' understanding of teamwork, definitions of expected individual and team performances, and strategies for systematically developing students' teamwork capacity. This workshop draws from a conceptual framework for teamwork development that includes individual and team contributions, methods for controlling these inputs on performances related to four key areas of teamwork, and outputs that are both team development and project completion. Participants will gain knowledge and resources for mentoring project teams for high performance and growth.

Lecturing has been shown to be an inefficient technique to get students to learn concepts in engineering. Demonstrating the concepts to students where they can see the principles used in the experimental design and analysis–or better yet, involving students in the experiment itself where they must apply the concepts to achieve the design goal–stimulates a deeper understanding of the material. With the availability of portable electronic instrumentation, low power electronic microcontroller boards, and open source/freeware simulation programs, hands-on learning can now be integrated into engineerin ...
