Anderson, Ind. — Anderson University and the School of Science and Engineering will host the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) IL-IN Section Conference April 9. The conference will feature a technical program that includes presentations of peer-reviewed papers, poster presentations, and invited keynote speakers.

“We are very excited to host the 2022 ASEE IL-IN Section Conference, which will allow engineering educators from all over Illinois and Indiana to visit our campus and see the amazing engineering programs we have built here,” said Dr. Ben McPheron, chair of physical sciences and engineering. “This conference will provide an opportunity for these engineering and STEM educators to learn from each other, get ideas, and network together to improve STEM education across the region.”

Several professors from AU are slated to speak during the multiple-session conference. They will be joined by professors from Big Ten universities such as Illinois and Purdue, along with professors from other regional universities such as Evansville, IUPUI, and the University of Indianapolis.

“Anderson University has proven to be very successful in educating future engineers,” said Dr. Chad Wallace, dean of the School of Science and Engineering. “We provide a hands-on education that is excellent, relevant, and compelling. Therefore, we are pleased to host this regional meeting of the ASEE where top educators from the Midwest can come together to share their thoughts, experiences, and research in engineering education.”
