US ASSET STEM Education announces innovative partnership with SAE International - 13 May 2019

ASSET STEM Education (ASSET), a provider of professional learning programs supporting educators in Pre-k through grade 12, has announced an innovative partnership with SAE International. The organisations join Universal Technical Institute to host the ’Engage in the Future: Engineering Workshop’ for teachers, administrators and other educators to integrate engineering design and inquiry-based teaching into the classroom, while exploring hands-on learning materials.

During the two-day workshop, ASSET’s Professional Learning team will engage participants in understanding what it means to teach engineering intentionally at all grade levels and make connections using a cross-curriculum learning approach. Educators will preview hands-on activities from SAE International’s A World in Motion® (AWIM) program, which are written to national math and science education standards.

Each AWIM challenge presents an engineering, marketing or production scenario from a fictitious company and guides students to design a product or devise a solution. Students must examine the goal, identify the intended product audience, establish what information to gather and synthesize, and plan how to design, develop, test and present a prototype of their design solution.

ASSET will work with teachers to explore how students will engage with these hands-on activities and understand concepts such as momentum, measurement, energy, gravity, prototype construction and more. AWIM’s newest course on Cybersecurity encourages students to investigate the architecture of the Internet & how it is designed to withstand attacks.

The two-day workshop will be held on September 24 and September 25 from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Universal Technical Institute Exton campus.

Holding the event at Universal Technical Institute’s Exton campus will expose educators to potential STEM education and career paths for students interested in transportation and motorsports industries. The facility includes state-of-the-industry equipment and hands-on training experience to prepare students for the shop environment.

Registration is now open until September 13, 2019. The cost of the program is $400 per person, and educators can get a 20 percent discount for Early Bird registration until June 30, 2019. Continuing Education credits are available for participants who complete the program.

US Portico’s Stephanie Orphan to co-facilitate at OA seminar preceding SSP conference - 13 May 2019

Stephanie Orphan, Portico's Director of Publisher Relations, will co-facilitate Fact or Fiction? OASPA Lifts the Lid on Open Access Publishing, a seminar preceding the Society for Scholarly Publishing annual conference in San Diego.

Scheduled to be held on May 29, this interactive seminar aims to deepen understanding of how open access publishing is approached by many different parties and tackle some enduring areas of open access concern and confusion.

Participants will hear about global trends and views in open access publishing, discuss perceptions and consider the facts behind them, examine different funding and business models, and have the opportunity to share their own experiences within open access publishing and wider issues in open research. Of interest to all stakeholders in scholarly communication, this session will ultimately delve beneath aspects of open access that are commonly misunderstood or subject to opinion-led debates, and separate the myths from the reality, in a lively, inclusive and interactive way.

The session will be chaired by Pete Binfield (PeerJ) and along with Stephanie will be co-facilitated by Bekah Darksmith (PLOS) and Caroline Sutton (Taylor & Francis).
