Reed elected chair of ASEE’s Professional Interest Council IV
Dr. Teri Reed, assistant agency director of workforce development for the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station and assistant vice chancellor of academic affairs for the Dwight Look College of Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been elected to chair the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Professional Interest Council IV (PIC IV) and will begin her service at the society’s annual conference in June in New Orleans.
Founded in 1893, the ASEE is the only national engineering education organization concerned with all engineering disciplines. The ASEE PIC IV promotes, encourages and facilitates ASEE activities pertaining to engineering education with an emphasis on teaching and learning and related research, diversity, libraries, graduate studies and technology.
Reed co-authored two landmark Journal of Engineering Education special reports in 2006 that helped establish engineering education as an academic discipline: “The National Engineering Education Research Colloquies” and “The Research Agenda for the New Discipline of Engineering Education.”
“This is quite an honor to serve my professional society in this role,” said Reed, an advocate for research-informed approaches to an inclusive engineering education. “My goal is to support and assist the divisions in PIC IV as they continue to do the work of the society. ASEE’s vision of advancing access, as well as excellence, in all aspects of engineering and engineering technology education is one we should all be behind as educators.”
Reed’s ASEE honors include the 2015 William Elgin Wickenden Award recognizing the authors of the best paper published in the Journal of Engineering Education, the 2013 Sharon Keillor Award for Women in Engineering Education, the 2013 Environmental Engineering Division Best Paper Award, the 2008 Educational Research and Methods Division Outstanding Service Award and being elected a Fellow in 2010.
