6. CALL FOR PAPERS: Advances in Engineering Education Special Issue on “Impact-Focused Engineering Education”
Guest Editor: Khanjan Mehta, Lehigh University, krm716@lehigh.edu

We invite articles from courses and programs that 1) engage in real-world engineering projects related to social innovation and global sustainable development and 2) prioritize (or at least give equal importance to) long-term project outcomes rather than simply focus on student learning outcomes. This special issue aims to curate proven practices and initiate larger conversations emerging from the work of engineering programs that engage students and faculty in the rigorous research, design, field-testing, and dissemination of technology-based solutions that address global development challenges. Whether partnering with departments on campus or communities in Appalachia, or striving to transform markets in Angola, these programs espouse diverse academic models, philosophies of engagement, and funding channels to deliver practical, sustainable, and scalable solutions to complex challenges including those related to food, energy, water, and health. Sustainability, in this context, refers to the notion that real solutions must be technologically appropriate, socially acceptable, environmentally benign, and economically sustainable. There is a recognition that ideas, presentations, and prototypes do not solve problems; the real challenge is in the implementation, assessment, and fast-paced pivoting to reach a higher sustainable equilibrium.

Interested authors should submit titles, a 200-word description of the course/program and its impacts, and 500-word abstracts of their contribution by October 15, 2018 to the guest editor, Khanjan Mehta at krm716@lehigh.edu. After an initial round of editorial reviews, we will invite full articles that will go through the standard AEE review process. Papers are expected to be between 5,000-10,000 words in length. Completed draft manuscripts will be due on February 28, 2019. The special issue is expected to be published in Spring 2020. For more information, please see: http://advances.asee.org/publication/impact-focused-education-cfp/

7. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Georgia Tech/NSF Summit Scalable Advanced Learning Ecosystems (SALE) Nov. 29-30, 2018

Please save the date for a National Science Foundation-funded summit, Scalable Advanced Learning Ecosystems (SALE), to be hosted at The Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta on November 29-30, 2018.

This event will bring together leaders in higher education and educational technology from across the globe to brainstorm and strategize creating cost-effective, sustainable, and scalable educational environments, or, SALE — Scalable Advanced Learning Ecosystems.

This two-day summit will be hosted at the Global Learning Center (GLC) on Georgia Tech’s campus and will feature several invited speakers, who will facilitate conversations on personalized learning systems, intelligent tutoring systems, immersive learning environments, and data mining and learning analytics. The goal will be to craft a collective vision for institutions to combine these technologies with considerations for student engagement, research, and business models that that make up SALEs.

The SALE Summit call is open but has limited spots for participation. Please stay tuned for our call for participant proposals.

We look forward to exploring the future of learning with you. For questions, contact Yakut Gazi (yakut@gatech.edu).
