The Experts at IEEI is a diverse group of educators, students, and professionals dedicated to improving engineering education research and professional development.
Members of the Experts at IEEI have the opportunity to:
- Build relevant skills in Engineering Education research, classroom approach, and peer interactions.
- Access to new resources and opportunities through the EEFG’s growing network and the IEEI department.
- Support and contribute to initiatives and programs that matter to you.
- Expand your network and visibility to an international community of Engineering Education professionals.
Admissibility to the Experts shall be determined by the Executive Committee, and require the consent of the department head, or the department head’s designee, of faculty members’ administrative location (usually the unit holding responsibility for the majority of the faculty members salary). Generally, the Experts will consist of faculty members who have a degree in engineering, computer science, or engineering technology, and a graduate degree, or significant industry experience, in one of these fields of education. The executive committee may consider other faculty who have active involvement in research in education in these areas, significant development, or innovations in these areas.
All members of the Experts are to maintain engagement with the Experts in alignment with their rank and responsibilities in their primary administrative locations. A table of these engagements is shown in the table below, and each faculty member is expected to meet all of the required engagements and one or more of the optional engagements in the three-year window.
