Ann McMahon: Using Engineering Education to Build Empathy

Using engineering projects to teach empathy may sound like an oxymoron at first. But the value of engineering projects in STEM programs goes much deeper than the cognitive level. Dr. Ann McMahon will share with us the insight she’s gained through her career first as an engineer and then as a STEM educator and systems thinker dedicated to promoting social and emotional learning. Dr. McMahon will show how group projects in the classroom can benefit both traumatized children and those who have not been traumatized by teaching self-regulation, empathy, trust and other emotional components.
