ENE Names 2018 Interdisciplinary Engineering Outstanding Alumni: Russell P. Troyer (BS IDE '72)

Russell P. Troyer began his Purdue education in the fall of 1968 with hopes to one day design spaceships to Mars - or at least fighter planes - with a degree in aeronautical engineering. It was about halfway through his degree that he learned what aeronautical engineers were actually doing in the field. The jobs didn’t have anything to do with design or anything else as exciting as he had anticipated. Russ knew he needed to make a decision, which is where his story with Interdisciplinary Engineering began.

Upcoming ASEE Panel Session: Global Women's Voices: Insights from Women in Predominately Muslim Countries with High Female Engineering Participation

Panelists will disseminate initial findings from focus group interviews seeking to understand the mechanisms that support high levels of women’s engineering participation. While the conversation will feature focus group data from female undergraduate engineering students, faculty, and practicing engineers in Jordan, Tunisia, and Malaysia, panelists will also discuss aspects of international collaboration and data collection, including plans for study in Saudi Arabia and the United States. The panelists will draw from their different disciplinary backgrounds—sociology, engineering, engineering education—to make observations and solicit discussion.

Upcoming ASEE Workshop: How to Evaluate Published Assessments for Use in Research and Evaluation

Validity in educational assessment is a frequently used but misunderstood term. The fundamental meaning of validity is an evaluation of evidence to determine appropriate interpretation and use of an assessment’s findings. Whether or not an assessment’s results can be trusted as valid indicators for a given use case can be difficult to ascertain for those without technical training in assessment.
