Our call for proposals sought to stretch beyond the boundaries of engineering education. Hence, we gladly welcome the expertise of faculty, graduate students, and practitioners in various fields to share their knowledge related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We’ve stressed the importance of our facilitators to design interactive workshops that actively engage participants throughout the sessions. 

If you’re interested in exploring our previous sessions held during Summer 2020, take a few moments to subscribe to the CDEI YouTube Channel here. Also, if you’re interested in facilitating an interactive workshop, submit a proposal to our ongoing virtual workshop series here.

Would you like to propose a future virtual workshop?

We are seeking interactive sessions (panels, community gatherings, brainstorming sessions, “roundtables,” research-sharing, professional development focused, etc.). If you or your colleagues have an idea for a DEI-focused session, please complete the form here by September 15, 2021 for Fall Workshop Submissions, by Dec 1, 2021 for Spring Submissions, and by April 13, 2022 for Summer Submissions.

Do You See Me?: Hypervisible Invisibility #EngineeringWhileBlack

Black men and women are capable, dignified, and tenacious; nevertheless, under-representation of black individuals within the field remains a stubborn issue at all levels. While many explanations have been offered anecdotally and within the literature, this panel discussion intends to offer engineering stakeholders an insider view on what it’s like to be black in engineering.

Post Annual Conference Dialogue

Following the 2020 Annual Conference, we hosted an hour of open dialogue to foster community, debrief the conference, and reflect on what we’d like to accomplish together moving forward.

Universal Design for Learning: How can inclusive teaching methods challenge and support all students?

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework that can help educators make learning accessible to more students. It aligns well with what we know about best pedagogical practice and can be applied intentionally from the micro to the macro level in courses.

Culturally Responsive Teaching in times of COVID-19

This workshop provides participants with opportunities to actively engage in discussions regarding contemporary issues on pedagogy and think about how to use inclusive pedagogy techniques – like culturally responsive teaching (CRT) in our engineering classrooms.

Promoting Student Wellness in the Online Classroom (A Discussion)

How can we promote student wellness in the online classroom?

Documenting Humanity: A Critical Perspective of Asset-based Research Frameworks

The goal of asset model research is to research the inherent wealth of people who have historically been excluded from entry. Recently, funding agencies such as the NSF have been promoting its use in research. In the workshop, you will learn the basics of the model and applications in your own work.

Diversity Papers: Tips and Guidelines for Authors and Evaluators

Are you wondering what makes a good diversity paper? If you are an author, reviewer, or program chair, watch this recorded workshop and you will learn tips and guidelines for great diversity papers.

Leveraging the ASEE and SEFI Joint Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: A Call and Pledge for Action

ASEE and the European Society for Engineering Education just issued a statement committing the organizations to increasing the participation, inclusion, and empowerment of minoritized individuals in all engineering venues. In this conversation with some of the authors we considered: How can we use this statement as a springboard to launch disruptive and intentional change? 

Expanding Resources that Connect Diversity, Equity, Access, & Inclusion with Ethics Education

Connecting ethics to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion is key for supporting how programs address the new ABET Outcomes, which include “create a collaborative and inclusive environment”. The NAE’s Online Ethics Center contains resources for ethics education, but lack issues of diversity. This session provides time to consider the intersection of diversity and ethics and a framework to develop materials that support teaching ethics from a diversity, equity, and inclusion perspective.

Retracing My Steps: Reflections of a Black Woman Leader in Engineering

Despite increased racial and gender diversity at the student and faculty level, Black women in leadership are an aberration in higher education. The facilitators Dr. Monica Cox and Dr. Meseret Hailu have developed a leadership toolkit to support Black women administrators. In this recorded workshop, hear the stories of two black women leaders.

Indigeneering: The Future of Engineering Education

On May 20th at 1:00 pm (EST), we invite you to join our collaborative conversation on equity and inclusion amid COVID19. We aim to identify lessons learned from the most recent spring semester so we can begin to learn how to mitigate issues concerning equity and inclusion as a community. More importantly, discuss and equip everyone with best practices to execute an equitable and inclusive distance learning experience for all!

Reaction to Action: A Conversation on Spring 2020 Equity and Inclusion Lessons Learned

In this collaborative conversation on equity and inclusion amid COVID19, we aimed to identify lessons learned from the most recent spring semester so we can begin to learn how to mitigate issues concerning equity and inclusion as a community.
