On October 16, I presented a webinar branding and social media for academics. The webinar was sponsored by the Women in Academia Committee of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). It included tips on branding yourself as an academic and sharing information about your work on social media.
At the 2017 SWE Annual Conference (WE17), I presented a session that included strategies for using technology to organize your artifacts for promotion and tenure. My presentation was based on data collected in a survey of other faculty members and my own experience.
At the 2017 ASEE Annual Conference, I was awarded the Apprentice Faculty Grant. The members of the Educational Research and Methods Division of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) award the Apprentice Faculty Grants for demonstrating outstanding potential for substantial future contributions to engineering education research and scholarship. The other recipients in 2017 were Stephanie Cutler, Brooke Coley, and Cory Hixson.
At the 2017 American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference, one of my students published a paper about the success of a unique SWE event at Kettering University, Welding and Machining Day. The paper explained how the event was organized and summarized the feedback from the participants. Diane Peters, the faculty advisor, and I also co-authored the paper. The full paper can be accessed from the ASEE website.
