Main Conference Day 1 - November 17th, 201410:45am Engineering, Engineering Education and the Crew Change - ChangingConversationsEngineers play a critical role in industry growth and job creation. Numerous reports are callingfor increasing numbers of engineers for the United States to successfully compete as a leaderin scienceand technology in the global marketplace. This is seen within the energy field throughdiscussions such as the Big Crew Change. To answer the call, there is a need for transformationalefforts building upon new learning technologies and emerging educational pedagogies as well asexperiential learning environments to recruit, retain and graduate engineering students. Changeof this type can only be effective and sustained by forging new pathways; pathways where anengineering education is accessible and attainable in a timely and economical fashion. The 2008 reportfrom the National Academy of Engineering, “Changing the Conversation: Messages for ImprovingPublic Understanding of Engineering,” encouraged engineers to take a hard look at how we talk aboutour profession and consider the conversations we have with others, including prospective students,their parents, and the general public. Focusing on the differences engineers make along with thecreativity and innovation that our field requires is a change we must all make in our conversations. Inaddition, shifting our educational paradigm from age old sage on the stage methods to experiential,collaborative interactions is key. As a result of this work, our recruiting efforts, both at the point ofrecruiting to the field of engineering as well as to the energy industry, will change. This impetus canbe taken even further to important areas within the engineering education pathways as potentialengineers are impacted with outreach. This address will begin with discussion of this changingconversation and quickly challenge the participant to change many conversations impactingengineering, engineering education and the Big Crew Change.Dr. Teri Reed, Assistant Dean of Engineering for Academic Affairs and Associate Professor of PetroleumEngineering, Texas A&M University11:30am Using Recognition to Build Your Employment BrandThe Energy sector is facing dangerous shortage of human capital, as more than half of workers arerapidly approaching retirement age.
