Setting up the Engineer of 2020 Lisa R. Lattuca and Patrick T. Terenzini Project Directors Presentation to the National Academy of Engineering Convocation of the Professional Engineering Societies May 7, 2007 Washington, D.C.

Slide 2

Presentation Preview Origins of the NSF-financed "E2020" ponders Overview of NAE\'s The Engineer of 2020 Reports A framework of the two concentrates How the two studies are particular yet correlative A look at what we\'re realizing as of now What we trust YOU can give: Questions, perceptions, thoughts, recommendations, advice, assets or individuals in your social orders - anything that will help us hit the nail on the head.

Slide 3

Origins of the "E2020" Studies Involvement of the Penn State Center for the Study of Higher Education (CSHE) in designing training: 1990-2000: Responsible for assessment in the ECSEL, one of the NSF-subsidized Engineering Education Coalitions 2002-2006: Completed ABET-supported, 40-establishment study of the effect of the new results based accreditation criteria (EC2000).

Slide 6

The Engineer of 2020 Reports in a Nutshell A dream of the connections for building in 2020: Technological (e.g., bio-tech, advanced frameworks, PC systems/devices, economical innovation, interdisciplinarity ) Societal, Global, and Professional (e.g., social, political & economic, assorted qualities, multi-disciplinarity, worldwide markets & settings, association of designing and open approach) Attributes of the Engineer of 2020: Strong diagnostic aptitudes Practical inventiveness Creativity Communication abilities (oral, composed, and social) Business, administration, and initiative aptitudes High moral models and demonstrable skill Agility, versatility, adaptability

Slide 7

The E2020 Research Projects Two studies connected by two shared inquiries: What\'s expected to deliver the specialist of 2020? What\'s expected to differentiate building instruction now and the calling later on?

Slide 8

Organizational Context Individual Student Experiences Organizational Structures, Policies, and Practices Classroom Experiences Academic and Co-Curricular Programs, Policies, and Practices Out-of-class Experiences Curricular Experiences Faculty Culture The College Experience Peer Environment Student Precollege Characteristics & Experiences Sociodemographic qualities Academic planning and execution Personal and social encounters E2020 Outcomes Particularly: Problem-comprehending Interdisciplinary Competence Contextual Competence (Terenzini and Reason, 2005)

Slide 9

Prototype to Production (P2P): Conditions and Processes for Educating the Engineer of 2020 Assess arrangement of current project objectives, educational module, and guideline and the properties of NAE\'s Engineer of 2020 . 2. See how understudies build up the learning, specialized, and proficient abilities of the architect of 2020. 3. See how understudies choose to end up designers and see the calling. 4. Light up the encounters of ladies, low-salary, and minority understudies in their designing projects. 5. Recognize the system and approach levers to create the architect of 2020 and to enhance the calling.

Slide 10

Prototyping the Engineer of 2020: A 360-degree Study of Effective Education (P360) Overarching Goal: Identify the hierarchical, curricular, instructional, and social components that create graduates who resemble the specialist of 2020 and pull in under-spoke to understudies. Three Focal E2020 Learning Outcomes: Problem-understanding aptitudes Contextual ability Interdisciplinary capability Strategy: Identify building schools right now out-performing others in: delivering graduates who intently look like the architect of 2020, drawing in and graduating under-spoke to understudies.

Slide 11

P2P: Prototype to Production (2006-2009) Phase I: Instrument Development and Pilot Testing Phase II: Pilot Testing, Sampling, Recruitment of Institutions Phase III: National Survey Administration P360: Prototyping the Engineer of 2020 (2006-2010) Phase I: Data Mining and Case Study Site Identification Phase II: Case Study Research (6) Phase III: Validate Findings through National Study of Engineering Education Phase IV: Analyses crosswise over cases and review discoveries. Exercises and Linkages

Slide 12

Current (Phase 1) Activities P2P: Instrument Development Site visits to City College, Penn State, Penn State Altoona, Hostos and Borough of Manhattan Community Colleges Interview workforce in designing, math, and science, and directors of understudy bolster administrations and uncommon projects. Distinguish potential overview things. P360: Data Mining and Planning Use EC2000 Study information to: refine and test thoughts rising up out of P2P meetings, recognize 6-8 high performing organizations for contextual analyses. Vet determinations with National Advisory Board and others in summer of 2007.

Slide 13

What Are We Learning? 1. Scholastic Pathways Families assume an imperative part, both positive and negative. For working understudies, their work amid school can: Enhance realizing (when the work designing related), or Impede realizing, when it (a) siphons time far from studies, or (b) forestalls investment in out-of-class learning opportunities. Curricular arrangement somewhere around 2-and 4-year organizations opens entryways. Summer span and comparable projects may help enrollment and maintenance of under-spoke to understudies. Junior college understudies are profoundly heterogeneous. Students from another school vary from "local" understudies in their: own qualities and encounters before school, and encounters in designing projects, yet may "make up for lost time" in their level of expertise improvement by end of their scholastic system.

Slide 14

What Are We Learning? 2. Workforce Roles Curricular Stewardship Periodic audit and evaluation Alignment of 2-and 4-year educational program Infusion of key substance and aptitudes crosswise over courses and years Teaching and Mentoring Dramatic contrasts in impression of parts somewhere around 2-and 4-year personnel Industry experience impacts ways to deal with showing Greater accentuation on application More involved exercises and exhibitions

Slide 15

What Are We Learning? 3. Advancing E2020 Attributes Faculty connect differing levels of significance to globalization and initiative aptitudes, and whether we can instruct imagination. Understudies need comprehension of the calling before – and notwithstanding amid – school. Workforce don\'t generally pass on the fervor of building practice. More noteworthy accentuation required on applications. Temporary jobs and Co-commentary might be powerful, however are not far reaching. Fleeting worldwide encounters may advance: designing aptitudes, and social ability. Both companion and staff communications can assemble aptitudes and demonstrable skill (e.g., student research, multi-year plan groups). Self-reflection and complex basic leadership are basic aptitudes.

Slide 16

What it implies for Professional Societies? Proficient Societies can bolster Student sections at junior colleges Industry joint effort in entry level positions and/or Co-operation programs for capable, yet impeded understudies High school projects to distinguish and ready all around arranged yet hindered understudies to different ways into designing Funding for 2-and 4-year curricular coordinated efforts and preparing for K-12 and junior college educators. Junior college programs that update impeded understudies in math and sciences Scholarships for scaffold projects to give access to secondary school understudies who are skilled, however not fiscally capable

Slide 17

Implications for Professional Societies? Different conceivable outcomes? Take an interest in the understanding of study discoveries Contribute to the national exchange (through society gatherings, bulletins, and so forth.) Facilitate and bolster improvement of industry-college joint efforts Other thoughts?
