About this Symposium
Meeting MS&T23: Materials Science & Technology
Symposium Curricular Innovations and Continuous Improvement of Academic Programs (and Satisfying ABET along the Way): The Elizabeth Judson Memorial Symposium
Sponsorship TMS: Education Committee
TMS: Accreditation Committee
Organizer(s) Alison Polasik, Campbell University
Jeffrey W. Fergus, Auburn University
Scope The goals of this symposium are to provide opportunities for programs to share innovative approaches in curricular development and effective pedagogical approaches in the broad materials science and engineering field covering all classes of materials. Talks related to new courses or curriculum, accreditation activities, student success, and graduate education are being solicited. Of particular interest are the following:

--advancements related to teaching computational materials science and engineering
--activities related to diversity, equity, justice, and inclusion
--The continued effects of COVID on students and faculty

The symposium will explore how these approaches lead to enhanced student outcomes and continuous improvement of the programs. Abstracts related to course changes made to improve online learning are also encouraged. The symposium will also highlight how these advances can be used to satisfy EAC/ABET criteria. Discussions on current EAC/ABET criteria (and changes) and preparation for reaccreditation visits will be included in the symposium.
