Workshop Title: Pocket AI and IoT Workshop for Interdisciplinary Education with MATLAB: Turn your Phone into a Smart Fitness Tracker

Workshop Abstract: In this hands-on and interactive workshop, you will learn how to use sensors, AI, and IoT to build a smart fitness tracker using your own mobile device. Learn the basics of sensors, AI, machine learning, and IoT required for building this application. We will demystify the buzz around sensor analytics, machine learning, and IoT and show you how easy it is to build smart wearables. You will be energized and engaged while doing hands-on exercises and leave excited about taking up these technologies for student projects in your interdisciplinary education. Discover how MATLAB Online™, MATLAB Drive™, ThingSpeak™, and machine learning algorithms (knn) are seamlessly integrated and used within MATLAB Mobile™. To participate in this workshop, you will need a MathWorks account (create MathWorks account), a laptop/desktop and a smartphone/tablet.

Workshop Title
Making Teamwork Effective in Engineering design Using State of the Art Team Diagnostics
Do some teams in your classes struggle to work well together? Have you ever wondered how you could design your course for optimal teamwork and high-quality, educational projects?

Workshop Abstract
Join us for this informative and interactive workshop to learn how you can use ITPmetrics.com to optimize your teams and support student development through self-awareness and improved team dynamics. During this session, we will demonstrate how our evidence-based suite of assessments can help support effectiveness during a team's lifespan (e.g., from team launch to performance and feedback cycles to final outcomes) and provide opportunities to check-in on team dynamics and functioning during critical points for typical student learning teams. Following an interactive walk-through of the platform, you will then get to try ITPmetrics.com out for yourself! You will leave the session with a personalized report and recommended development activities based on your Conflict Management Styles (the same report your students would receive) and the hands-on skills to start utilizing ITPmetrics.com for your teams!
