Greg Strimel, assistant professor of engineering/technology teacher education, delivered a higher seminar on engineering design cognition at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm Sweden at the beginning of February. KTH is one of Scandinavia’s largest technology institutions and Sweden’s first polytechnic.
During his visit to Sweden, Strimel explored study abroad opportunities with the institution. He was recently awarded a Study Abroad and International Learning (SAIL) grant to explore opportunities for global and cultural immersions for Polytechnic students.
Strimel was also recently featured in a special issue of the Technology and Engineering Teacher Journal. He and his colleagues were invited to publish a viewpoint on better positioning technology and engineering in P-12 classrooms based on their previous publication in the Journal of Technology Education. The special issue has been made free to everyone on the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association's (ITEEA) website.
Strimel and his co-authors have been invited to discuss their publication at a special panel presentation at the ITEEA annual conference in Dallas, Texas, in March.
