EVOLUTION OF THE DESIGN ENGINEERING MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
AbstractThe Design Engineering Mentorship Program (DEMP) is a five-day intensive training program focused on developing appropriate competencies in graduate students required to effectively teach engineering design at the undergraduate level.
Evolution of the present program is discussed in context of feedback and observations from the now defunct Design Engineering & Instruction program. The structure of the procedural based DEMP program is fully described including new experiential based workshops on creativity and coaching led by a PCC certified coach.
Motivating factors and implementation details of each of the workshops are described in detail in context of the competencies attributed to a design instructor.
The first instance of the DEMP program will be offered in September 2016.
