If you are presenting a poster the preferred size dimension is 24 in (h) x 36 in (w) – though we can accommodate 36 x 48 if needed.

For paper presentation and active engagement sessions: Each room will have a laptop and projection capabilities, but to save time, upload your presentation materials to the conference management site by:

  1. Viewing the timetable above,
  2. finding your presentation,
  3. clicking the pencil in the upper right (next to the time) and then
  4. “Manage Materials,” finally,
  5. Upload your presentation or add a link to your presentation materials.

Uploading your documents prior to the conference and your session will greatly reduce our transition time allowing everyone time to present and field questions while not dealing with transferring and finding information on USB devices and emails.

Original Call for Paper, Poster and Experiential Session Presentations

Authors are invited to submit a paper (short and full-length manuscripts), poster, or active engagement session (1-hour activity with introduction & wrap-up) in one of two tracks at the conference (collegiate or K-12 engineering education). Papers are included in the open-access proceedings. Possible topics may include (but are not limited to) the following:

Innovative Curricula or Courses • First Year Engineering Programs • Approaches to Interdisciplinary Engineering •
Distance or Online Learning in Engineering • Engineering K-12 Outreach Programs • Experiential Learning • Engineering and Technology Collaboration • Faculty Professional Development • New Faculty Development or Mentoring • ABET Accreditation Projects • Engineering Recruitment or Retention • Partnerships • Multidisciplinary Approaches • Teaching/Learning Practices • Capstone Design Courses or Projects • International Experiences • Ethics and Professional Practice • Teaching Engineering Soft Skills

We encourage authors to submit other topics of interest to the engineering education community. We encourage young faculty, collegiate and K-12 educators, and graduate students to participate. Authors submit an abstract for initial review. Following acceptance of an abstract, authors submit a short or full manuscript (in either collegiate or K-12 engineering education), which is peer-reviewed to determine acceptance. Submitting authors are asked to participate in the peer review process. Authors are expected to present their papers at the conference to facilitate the transfer of knowledge through discussion and debate. All accepted papers that are presented by a registered author are included in the final conference proceedings, and preference is given to accepted full manuscripts. An author/co-author can be associated with as many papers/presentations as is appropriate, but a registrant may only serve as the presenter of record on a maximum of three presentations.
