U442·SUNDAY WORKSHOP: Learning Experiences for All: Using Universal Design for Learning to Reimagine and Craft New Learning Experiences
Workshop New Engineering Educators Division (NEE)
Sun. June 23, 2024 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM
E141, Oregon Convention Center
Session Description

Free ticketed event
Engineering Education has continually called for implementing inclusive and diverse teaching practices to invite and accommodate the needs of a plurality of learners. One way to respond to this call is through the use of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). UDL is a framework created to guide educators in designing learning experiences in an accessible and engaging way. The principles of UDL focus on reducing barriers and rethinking the learning environment rather than forcing the learner into a single learning model. This workshop invites current and aspiring engineering educators to collaboratively learn more about UDL through a series of interactive activities. Participants will leave with knowledge of how to (1) identify accessibility improvement areas in their current or future courses and (2) understand how UDL can be leveraged to improve these areas.

Speakers
  1. Dr. Adam R Carberry
    The Ohio State University

    Dr. Adam R. Carberry is Professor and Chair in the Department of Engineering Education at The Ohio State University (OSU). He joined OSU after having served as an Associate Professor in The Polytechnic School within Arizona State University’s Fulton Schools of Engineering (FSE). There he served as the Graduate Program Chair for the Engineering Education Systems & Design (EESD) Ph.D. Program. Dr. Carberry's primary areas of interest within the broad discipline of engineering education include: 1) developing new classroom innovations and assessment techniques for pre-college and higher education students, and 2) identifying new ways to empirically understand engineering student and educator experiences. He is currently a Deputy Editor for the Journal of Engineering Education and co-maintains the Engineering Education Community Resource wiki. Additional career highlights include serving as Chair of the Research in Engineering Education Network (REEN), visiting École Nationale Supérieure des Mines in Rabat, Morocco as a Fulbright Specialist, and being named an ASEE Fellow.

  2. Dr. Samantha Ruth Brunhaver
    Arizona State University, Polytechnic Campus

    Samantha Brunhaver, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in The Polytechnic School within the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. Her research areas include engineering career pathways, undergraduate persistence, professional practice, and faculty mentorship. Brunhaver teaches courses in ASU’s undergraduate engineering program and engineering education Ph.D. program. She earned her B.S. in mechanical engineering from Northeastern University and her M.S. and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Stanford University. She is the recipient of an NSF CAREER award focused on fostering greater workplace adaptability among engineers. Before joining ASU, she worked at Boston Scientific and Procter & Gamble.

  3. Ms. Rachel Figard
    Arizona State University

    Rachel Figard is a Ph.D. candidate in the Engineering Education Systems and Design program at Arizona State University. She received her M.S. from Arizona State University in User Experience and B.S. from North Carolina State University in Industrial Engineering. Her research focuses on the lived experiences of disabled students in engineering education, design justice, and educational policy design to support marginalized students. She is a recipient of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

  4. Mr. Marcus Melo de Lyra
    The Ohio State University

    Marcus Melo de Lyra is a Ph.D. student in the Engineering Education program at The Ohio State University. He received his M.S. from Universidade Federal de Campina Grande (Brazil) in Civil and Environmental Engineering with focus on Geotechnical Engineering and B.S. from Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte in Civil Engineering. His research focuses on the experiences of early-career engineering faculty and their professional development, specifically in how they develop their teaching.
