SUBMIT TO PRISM’S LAST WORD COLUMN
ASEE’s Prism magazine welcomes essay submissions for our Last Word page. These should be about 700 words plus a short bio paragraph and present an argument that generates discussion. Topics should be of interest to engineering educators, but are otherwise left up to the authors. Articles are chosen based on the importance or timeliness of the issues raised, clarity, and quality of presentation. Please email your submission either with a Word attachment or in the email text, not as a PDF, and allow at least 12 weeks for your submission to complete the review process. Every article submitted to Prism is carefully reviewed by the
magazine's editorial staff. During this time, your article should not be submitted elsewhere or be under consideration by another publication. Once your submission has completed the review process, we will notify you of your acceptance or rejection for publication.
Please email submissions to Prism editor Eva Miller at email@example.com.
PRISM SEEKS NEW STUDENT COLUMNIST
ASEE’s Prism magazine seeks a new student columnist to add their fresh perspective to its pages! The columnist should be a clear writer with strong opinions who, ideally, has at least two years left in school. The columnist will write two columns per year and receive $500 for each published article.
To apply, please email a resume, brief cover letter, and any writing samples you may have (newspapers, magazines, blogs, papers, etc.—published is preferred but not required!) to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 16, 2021 with the subject line, “Student Columnist Application.”
Check out the latest column from our graduating student columnist, Amman Asfaw, to see what a column looks like.
ASEE PRESENTS PREPARING THE WORKFORCE FOR INDUSTRY 4.0
Engineering is at a crossroads, from how it’s practiced in industry to how it’s taught in the classroom. New technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), nanofabrication, and the internet of things (IoT) have all shifted the engineering landscape. This event features a series of TED-like talks from industry and academic leaders, a member of the National Science Board, and other luminaries. This is THE opportunity to bring voices from academia and industry together to imagine and implement actionable outcomes during the most fluid state of education in centuries. Schools are at a crossroads, so let’s give them a roadmap. This moment will
go down in history. Don’t miss it!
The event will take place in-person at Washington DC’s Historic Omni Shoreham Hotel, October 13-14, 2021. Register here at the early-bird rate of $395. Visit the project website. We have reserved a block of rooms at the Omni Shoreham, with a single rate of $269 per night. Book rooms here.
ESSENTIALS OF EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTION
Calling all engineering faculty! Whether you are preparing to teach for the first time, an experienced educator, or are currently pursuing a faculty career, join us for our brand-new program, Essentials of Effective Instruction, to learn best practices related to effective instruction and learning. This hands-on, instructor-led program will provide educators with the knowledge and tools needed to apply evidence-based instructional strategies in their classrooms that foster enhanced student learning and success. $450 for ASEE members.
ONLINE VACCINE SCIENCE RESOURCES
ASEE and other entities are partnering on the creation and distribution of educational materials developed for educators, community groups, and the public, with support from NSF. The project’s video modules explain vaccine safety and address vaccine hesitancy. The videos can be used by academics to help explain to their students why they should get the COVID-19 vaccine. Watch and share the video modules. Visit the project website.
