I collaborated with two other ASEE Student Chapter Presidents, Anastasia Rynearson from Purdue University and Matthew Priddy from Georgia Tech, to determine trends and best practices for student chapters of ASEE.  We surveyed Student Division members of ASEE then analyzed the results.  Anastasia and I partcipated in a panel discussion on the same topic during the conference.  I presented the paper at the conference as well.  The full paper can be found in PEER, the ASEE paper repository.  More information about the ASEE Student Division and ASEE Student Chapters can be found on the Student Division blog.

New laboratory kit

A bring your own experiment (BYOE) is a special category of papers at the ASEE Annual Conference in the Division Experimentation and Lab-Oriented Studies.  In a BYOE paper the author describes how to develop equipment and/or a novel set of experiments.  At the 2015 ASEE Annual Conference, I published a BYOE paper about the GE 320 laboratory kit I developed and the experiments that can be performed with the kit.  During the conference, instead of a traditional paper presentation, I demonstrated an experiment with the kit in a science fair style session.  The full paper can be found on the ASEE PEER website.  

Low-cost hardware

We are seeking volunteers who have experience teaching and/or developing control systems laboratories. The purpose of this study is to determine a consensus of the most important learning outcomes, concepts, and equipment for students to experience in a control systems laboratory. In order to achieve a consensus the survey will be administered in four rounds between June and August 2015. Each round will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.

At the 2015 SWE Region H conference at University of Notre Dame, I presented a session titled "Your Brand and Social Media."  The first part of the presentiation was about creating a personal brand.  That was followed by an overview of some of the most popular social media/networking sites.  Then I wraped it up with some best practices from the The Art of Social Media: Power Tips for Power Users by Guy Kawasaki and Peg Fitzpatrick.
