American Society for Engineering Education | Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Founded in 1893, the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) is a nonprofit organization of individuals and institutions committed to furthering education in engineering and engineering technology. It accomplishes this mission by:

  • promoting excellence in instruction, research, public service and practice;
  • exercising worldwide leadership;
  • fostering the technological education of society; and
  • providing quality products and services to members.

Why Join ASEE?

The ever-increasing influence and rapid advance of technology demands a skilled, highly educated technical workforce. From defense to infrastructure to telecommunications to consumer gadgetry, the quality of our engineers affects the quality of our lives.

If you have questions about ASEE, please contact the campus representative, Byron Garry.

ASEE Best Practices Series

Started in Spring 2011, the ASEE Best Practices Series is an opportunity to meet, share and discuss the process of engineering education with Engineering faculty. The sessions are held two to three times a semester from 12-12:50 p.m. with pizza and drinks provided.

Please contact members (below) of the Best Practices Committee with your comments and questions.

What is SoTL?

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning is "the inquiry into student learning processes and use of the findings to implement informed changes and expand the knowledge base of teaching and learning. SoTL involves the integration of teaching with the scholarship of research; it is also referred to as 'classroom research'."
