Scope of CACHE 50th 2019
On July 14, 1969 the proposal founding the Computer Aids for Chemical Engineering Committee was submitted to the NSF and the first official meeting of the CACHE organization was held on November 18, 1969 in Washington DC. From its inception, CACHE has promoted the development and distribution of technology-based materials and software in chemical engineering education through projects applying computational chemical engineering, sponsoring conferences, recognizing outstanding contributions, and providing leadership in chemical engineering education.
While this anniversary provides an opportunity to review and celebrate the accomplishments of CACHE over this 50-year period, the primary goal of this Conference is to bring together leaders in the chemical engineering discipline to explore and discuss future directions: hence the theme "Future of Cyber-Assisted Chemical Engineering Education". The program will include presentations by CACHE leaders, current and past, highlighting the accomplishments and reviewing current thrusts of CACHE in educational products and conferences. It will feature five plenary speakers offering their views of important directions in cyber-assisted education. It will involve sessions of invited oral and poster presentation by outstanding young faculty who are innovating in the development of educational media, exploring novel ways of organizing student-instructor interactions to enhance learning and experimenting with alternative knowledge delivery modes. These innovations promise to have impact across the chemical engineering curriculum at all degree levels.
