eSyst: Electronics Systems Technology for the Next Generation

Presenter:  Tom McGlew, eSyst Project Manager; Lou Frenzel, Editor - Electronic Design Magazine; Wayne Phillips, Chabot Community College; Keith Sanders, Columbus State Community College

Description:  Come and see how "a systems view of electronics" is changing how we teach and prepare electronics' technicians for positions in the electronics industry. This workshop will explore the project's deliverables, which include enhancing student/technician enrollment in electronics technology degree programs, how teaching a "systems" approach can revitalize your existing electronics curriculum, and how the "systems view" can aid in student retention. The eSyst panel of developers will update you on the status of the project, demonstrate the eSyst website, and present overviews of the project's educational resources.

SAME-TEC 2008 eSyst Workshop Materials:

Presenter:  Tom McGlew, eSyst Project Manager; Lou Frenzel, Editor - Electronic Design Magazine

Description: The eSyst Project was presented by Tom McGlew of the Maricopa Advanced Technology Education Center (MATEC) and members of the eSyst development team.  This full-day workshop was the second in a series of ongoing events designed to highlight and inform you on the status of the new National Science Foundation funded ATE project grant (DUE-0702753) “A New Systems View of Electronics for 2010.”  This project’s deliverables will help to revitalize your programs through a “systems” approach to teaching electronics, address declining enrollments in your current electronics programs, and will aid in retaining your students.

In the morning, the eSyst panel of developers updated the participants on the current status of the project including:  development activities on the first three courses to be updated to a systems approach, and the process for developing Concept Inventory evaluation tools.

In the afternoon, the eSyst panel developers presented a look at the Online Systems Lab activity developed with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and presented overviews of the first modified systems course lab activities. The workshop ended with a general feedback and questions period.
