Trailblazers in Engineering Workshop for Future Faculty


Trailblazers in Engineering (TBE) are workshops to prepare future trailblazing faculty in engineering with a focus on preparing outstanding scholars who are also committed to increasing the success of underrepresented communities of engineers. Trailblazers in Engineering Fellows are selected not only for their outstanding scholarly achievements but also for their potential impact in expanding representation and diversity in engineering. 

The virtual workshop will provide Fellows the ability to network with leading faculty in engineering, thought leaders, program managers at key federal funding agencies, Purdue Engineering heads, and of course, each other. Participants will also meet current Trailblazers and benefit from their inspiring keynote talks. 

TBE 2021 will be held virtually October 19 - 22, 2021.  

Reasons to Attend 

  1. Network with leading trailblazing faculty in engineering, thought leaders, program managers at key federal funding agencies, Purdue Engineering heads, and scientists who will present keynote speeches and talks throughout the program.
  2. Gain insight into what academic success will look like post-pandemic.
  3. Participate in panel discussions. 
  • Why choose an academic career?
  • How to apply & interview?
  • How to negotiate salary and start-up packages?
  • How to get early career research funding?
  • Meet program managers from the National Science Foundation, Office of Naval Research, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, National Institutes of Health and others; receive advice on your proposals; and participate in a poster session to pitch your research and teaching plans and get feedback from would-be employers.
  • Attend the "Success Strategies for New Faculty Members" workshop presented by internationally recognized experts in faculty development, Drs. Richard Felder and Rebecca Brent
  • Receive a $500 scholarship, pending full participation in the workshop!

Opportunities await the best and brightest candidates. 

DEADLINE:  September 15, 2021

JEE Mentored Reviewer Program

The Journal of Engineering Education (JEE) is committed to cultivate, disseminate, and archive scholarly research in engineering education.  To expand our reviewer base and maintain the quality of manuscript reviews, JEE launched a Mentored Reviewer Program in 2019. This program is intended to coach new or novice reviewers through the review process with mentor who has substantial experience in reviewing and writing engineering education research studies. We are inviting applications for mentees to the JEE Mentored Reviewer Program. Mentees for the program should be novices in engineering education research such as graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and engineering faculty.  Mentees should display evidence of developing expertise (through formal courses or real-world experiences) in research areas that align with the journal’s mission. Mentees should have developing expertise in either quantitative or qualitative research methods. Individuals from countries other than the United States are welcome and encouraged to apply.


The Mentored Reviewer Program is a competitive program for both mentors and mentees. All mentors and mentees will be acknowledged at the ASEE annual meeting and will receive a certificate recognizing their accomplishments through their participation in the program during the previous year. Mentees will be asked to participate in an online training with their mentors and JEE editors that will include an introduction to JEE and an overview of expectations for reviews. During the mentorship period (approximately 3 - 6 months), mentors and mentees will work together on approximately three article reviews. A scaffolded approach to the review process allows each mentee to gain more independence by their final review. To the extent possible, mentors and mentees will be matched based on expertise. For more information on the program, please contact Lisa Benson at lbenson@clemson.edu, or visit the program website, which also includes resources for reviewers: https://sites.google.com/view/jee-mentored-reviewers/mentored-reviewer-program

The application for mentees is available at: https://tinyurl.com/JEEMentoredReviewMenteeF21 . Applications are due by August 20, 2021.
