Reflecting – exploring the meaning of experiences and the consequences of the meanings for future action – has always been essential in the development of expertise. Reflection and the promotion of reflective techniques are becoming more important in engineering education because of the expanding need for diverse, adaptive, broad-thinking, and nimble engineering experts who can respond to the ever-increasing challenges that society faces.
ASU is one of 12 institutions teaming up to promote reflection in engineering education as part of the Consortium to Promote Reflection in Engineering Education. Fulton Schools faculty interested in embedding or expanding the use of reflection in their course(s) can apply for a mini-grant from CPREE @ ASU. Approximately 20-25 selected participants throughout the six schools will each be awarded a $2,000 mini-grant for their participation during the 2015-2016 academic year. Applications will be 1-page submissions (click here for details; must be logged into your ASU account).
