The Alliance for Promoting Innovation in Engineering Education (aPIE2) is launching a new initiative, starting Monday, 19 October 2009 at the 2009 IEEE Frontiers in Education: Twitter for Engineering Education Transformation and Innovation (TwEETI).
More information on the TwEETI initiative is availabe at the TwEETI tab of the www.apie2.org website, but the idea is to encourage more engineering educators and friends of engineering education to start using twitter to share and vet interesting innovations and deveopments in engineering education.
Existing twitter accounts can join by simply following @apie2. aPIE2 will itself follow accounts with significant engineering education content or information of interest to educators and friends of engineering education. Those not on twitter who would like to participate can sign up by following the instructions here.
For more information contact Dave Goldberg (firstname.lastname@example.org or (@deg511). @aPIE2, @deg511, and @iFoundry will twitter IEEE FIE live and others attending the conference are invited to join in. The hash tag for FIE will be #fie09.
