This year at the ECEDHA conference, I was able to deliver a keynote address on Charting a Path of Innovation from Undergraduate Education to Research and Beyond. It was a great experience and was a jumping off point for a number of hugely enlightening conversations with some of the most passionate faculty in the world. Throughout the weekend I learned a lot and wanted to be able to share some of my insights all the way from California.

The NI academic team has been traveling around the globe to open 2018, giving us an opportunity to gain more insights into the things that will be impact the world of education this year. There will be impact in academic research (e.g. 5G will go from theory to reality in Korea during the Olympics) and educators will further integrate  project-based learning and active learning into engineering curriculum. In my first blog post of 2018, learn about some of the trends that we are tracking, and what you will see from the National Instruments team.

A letter of support included in your grant proposal is no longer enough to show the grant review panel that your project will succeed and is worth funding. But the right industry partner can do more than write a letter. 

 

For years, Igor Alvarado has collaborated with researchers through the proposal process to help them best convey the strength and credibility of their research plans. In this article, he shares tips on how an accelerated Transition to Practice Plan (TTP) can differentiate a grant proposal.

Once more I was able to join the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) 2017 annual conference which was held in Columbus Ohio. I was able to speak to countless educators, partners and thought leaders during my 3 days there, and after a little down time, I found myself in front of my computer to think through some of my major takeaways. Between conversations with influential educator Dr. Harry Powell of the University of Virginia, to seeing first hand the impact of trends like IoT - it was another fantastic conference. Here are my top 3 insights from that event.
