Stanford ASEE welcomes you to the Fall 2020 quarter! We are excited to share our flyer of upcoming events for the quarter. We’re looking forward to seeing you there! As always, don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com with questions or suggestions for future events!
2020-2021 ASEE programming will include:
- A monthly breakfast chat (ABC), where we engage with experts in engineering education and the research they share;
- A monthly journal club (JC), where we discuss recent articles in engineering education pedagogy;
- An annual symposium, where we gather each year to take a deep dive into one topic of interest to higher education; and
- An anti-racist learning club for learners at all levels, where we provide a safe space to digest and discuss readings, talks, and videos pertaining to anti-racist ideals, DEI goals, and culturally responsive teaching within and beyond engineering education.
To stay up-to-date on our upcoming events, check out our calendar below and subscribe to our biweekly newsletter!

On the job market? Putting together CVs and cover letters can be stressful. Click here to check out an article that provides some suggestions on creating a cover letter. There are also amazing resources on campus that you can explore, including the Stanford Career Development Center (click here for the website and see what they offer). I recently went to a session with Lance Choy on writing a CV and cover letter and found it extremely helpful. If you have other suggestions or comments about preparing job application materials, feel free to leave a comment!
President Hennesy wrote an op-ed on MOOCs in the May/June 2014 Stanford Magazine, discussing the importance of developing new technologies and activities for student engagement on- and off-line. Read the column, “What We’ve Learned About MOOCs” here: http://alumni.stanford.edu/get/page/magazine/article/?article_id=70109
This article discusses the academic-public interface, and calls professors to seek opportunities to make their work known/understood to the public. However, there are many dis-incentives for professors to pursue that path. Interesting read, so follow this link to the full article.
