Learn how you can bring Humanitarian Engineering into your classroom and programs with Dr. Juan Lucena Sep 12, 3-5 PM in Green Center 200F with refreshments!
The goal of this workshop is to collaboratively develop strategies to advance the work that engineering educators do in the areas of community engagement, frugal engineering, humanitarian engineering, ethics, social entrepreneurship and related areas to accentuate inherent issues of social justice and social responsibility.
Based on their research and programmatic experience in these areas, workshop facilitators will outline multiple potential spaces for action, including the
a) writing and teaching of engineering problems (the problem space);
b) development and teaching of courses (the course space);
c) boundary between the technical and social components of the curriculum (the boundary space); and
d) the development of programs such as minors and certificates (the program space).
These four spaces constitute the primary domains within the locus of control of most engineering educators. Whether we work in engineering design, the engineering sciences, or develop Humanities/Social Science (HSS) courses for engineers, this workshop will allow participants to assess which space(s) is (are) the most effective to initiate or continue reform in their own institution.
