WELCOME LETTER
HISTORY OF THE COLLOQUIUM SERIES

The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) presents an annual global
colloquium that unites the diverse elements of the international engineering education
world while focusing on issues of interest to the international engineering education
community. The colloquium, held annually in locations such as Berlin, Beijing, Sydney,
Rio de Janeiro, and Istanbul, with the assistance of engineering education organizations
from the host country, links engineering educators across international borders and brings
together teachers and researchers who would otherwise never have an opportunity to
meet and exchange ideas and viewpoints.

This year, ASEE is pleased to present the 2008 Global Colloquium in Cape Town, South
Africa with the assistance of the Department of Chemical Engineering of University of
Cape Town. Program tracks will address issues such as Inferring and Designing
Engineering Education Practice from Research and Societal Context, Successful Practices
in Engineering Education, and Securing a Vibrant Global Economy – Building Capacity
through Sustainable Accreditation Policy and Practice in Developed and Developing
Nations. The focus of the Colloquium is on successful strategies for dealing with each of
these issues. Contributors will present examples of successful strategies, describing
actions that are being taken and providing evidence of what works and why. Beyond the
excellent technical program presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to tour
sites in Cape Town, as well as visit some of the finest engineering colleges in South
Africa.

We are pleased to announce that we have invited engineering students from throughout
the world to join us during the Global Colloquium. A special student-focused program is
currently being designed to enable students to interact with their global peers in addition
to actively participating through the Colloquium. This will enable them to speak with
representatives of corporations, governments and international engineering societies,
global organizations such as Autodesk and IFEES, and university faculty and deans.
There will also be several workshops focusing on cutting-edge issues related to
engineering education and economic development.

GLOBAL COLLOQUIUM PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Overall Theme

"Excellence and Growth in Engineering Education in Resource Constrained
Environments" – Learning from each other and working together to produce quality
engineers for every part of the world in the 21st Century.

The colloquium will address three major themes of contemporary interest:

      Inferring and Designing Engineering Education Practice from Research and
       Societal Context
      Successful Practices in Engineering Education
      Securing a Vibrant Global Economy - Building Capacity through Sustainable
       Accreditation Policy and Practice in Developed and Developing Nations

The colloquium will focus on successful strategies and practices for advancing these
themes. Contributors are encouraged to provide examples that detail actions of what
works and why, and with supporting evidence.

Track 1: Inferring and Designing Engineering Education Practice from Research
and Societal Context: To what extent should engineering educators collaborate
globally to re-engineer their programs?

The significant body of research in engineering education and related fields should
inform and influence beliefs and theories for engineering both small-scale (e.g., daily to
monthly time scales) learning experiences for students and large-scale (e.g., semester to
multiple-year time scales) course and curriculum design improvements. The rationale for
engineering these small- and large-scale innovations include improving student learning,
increasing student retention in engineering, and increasing the diversity of engineering
graduates.

This track will explore the impact of research in engineering education to deepen our
understanding of the implications for engineering education practice.

Track 2: Successful Practices in Engineering Education

To compete in an increasingly global environment, engineering graduates must have a
firm grounding in technical as well as professional skills. In addition to the traditional
math/science/physics base, students must be adept in the appropriate use of these
fundamentals to design socially responsible and financially viable solutions which will
improve the quality of life on this planet.

This track will explore the design, implementation and sustainability of engineering
curricula to prepare graduates to compete in a global environment. The goal is to foster
discussion, exchange information, and nucleate future collaborations among attendees.
Examples of successful practices that will be discussed include: academic staff
development, industry-university partnerships, skills for global competitiveness, facilities
and resources, and course and curriculum design.

Track 3: Securing a Vibrant Global Economy - Building Capacity through
Sustainable Accreditation Policy and Practice in Developed and Developing Nations

The quality of engineering education is a key determinant of economic success. Building
engineering curricula internationally that are comparable contributes to the
transformation of engineering education globally. Such transformation must spawn
engineering professionals of high quality who will advance the cause of sustainable
growth and development internationally.

This track explores systems of quality assurance in engineering education and their role
and impact on producing engineering professionals ready to enter the workplace and
embark on continuous professional development and learning.

CONTRIBUTED PAPER OVERVIEW

Over 200 authors from around the globe will be presenting papers of interest for the
Global Colloquium themes during the Contributed Paper Sessions. Complete listings of
