American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE)- June 10 - 13, 2012 San Antonio, Texas

The ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition is the only conference dedicated to all disciplines of engineering education. It is committed to fostering the exchange of ideas, enhancing teaching methods and curriculum, and providing prime networking opportunities for engineering and technology education stakeholders such as deans, faculty members and industry and government representatives. This year, we have 2 papers that are being presented at ASEE. Each paper represents one of the grants I have. One grant is UTeach Engineering and the other is Beyond Blackboards. Here are the two sessions where the papers will be presented. ASEE is an exciting conference with leaders in Engineering Education from all over the world. -Dr. Petrosino
