Essential Education Implementation: Working Group Report-Outs (Part 2)

On June 27, 2023, University Senate Proposal 18-23, “Proposal to Revise General Education Requirements (Essential Education) for Bachelor Degrees,” received final administrative approval. At the end of the fall 2023 semester, eight faculty and staff cross-curricular working groups were assembled and began full operation to implement the various components of the new Essential Education curriculum per the Senate proposal.

Following are mission descriptions for four of the eight Essential Education Implementation working groups. The other four working groups’ report-outs were published in Tech Today yesterday (Jan. 31).

If you have any questions, comments or feedback about any of these working groups or about the implementation process, please contact the Essential Education Implementation Leadership Team at

  • Activities for Well-Being & Success Working Group
    Activities for well-being and success foster students to connect with others, be active, restore their minds and bodies, and expand learning beyond the traditional classroom. This working group is reviewing the binning list created by the Course List Working Group to identify current courses that align with these goals, developing a process for the campus community to suggest activities, determining training/resource needs for instructors and liaising with the Assessment Working Group to determine assessment requirements for these courses. The group is developing a process for new course suggestions and a list of training and resources.

  • Essential Education Minors Working Group
    This group is tasked with proposing 15 minor themes for development (or revision) into SHAPE Essential Education minors by spring 2025. These Essential Ed minors, an alternative to the Distribution Pathway courses, will be housed in SHAPE departments. This group will create a timeline for development of these Essential Ed minors, a risk analysis report, a minor audit template and a proposal for working groups for each minor. The group is currently analyzing the output of an interdisciplinary task force and previous working groups to identify recurring themes for potential Essential Ed minors. Meetings are being conducted with SHAPE units to assess interest and capacity as hosts and collaborators for these minors. They are also developing processes for reviewing minors for compliance with requirements and ensuring continued evaluation, support and potential revisions to the minors.

    The minors working group will submit an announcement in Tech Today later in February regarding preliminary themes identified for Essential Ed minor development, on which we encourage your feedback.

  • Assessment Working Group
    The group envisions a future state where faculty and staff appreciate that helping students learn is a collective activity: everyone does their part, and students grow in the Essential Education arena in ways that complement their degrees and positively impact their careers and other personal journeys after graduation. The group’s mission is to propose an overall structure for assessment, an implementation timeline and a schedule that supports that future state. The group is reviewing previous Essential Ed work, as well as information about the current approach to general education assessment (including challenges, opportunities, issues and recent pilots).

  • Marketing and Communication Advisory Board
    This group’s role is to serve as an internal advisory board for University Marketing and Communications (UMC), liaising with other working groups and identifying communication and resource needs for advisors, faculty, students (current and prospective) and employers throughout the Essential Ed implementation process. The group’s current focus is assisting UMC’s first communication priority, which is a new series of pages on the Registrar's website. These pages will serve as the “user manual” for Essential Ed, housing detailed program information and key advising materials.

Black History Month: Honoring Legacy, Embracing Diversity

BioSci Chair Candidate Seminars with Casey Huckins

Department of Biological Sciences (BioSci) chair candidate Casey Huckins, professor, Department of Biological Sciences, Michigan Technological University, will present a Department Leadership Seminar on Monday (Feb. 5) from 3-4 p.m. in Rekhi G009.

Huckins will also present a research seminar on Tuesday (Feb. 6) from 3-4 p.m. in Chem Sci B002.

The research seminar is titled "Integrated research to understand, conserve, and restore coaster Brook Trout – A Lake Superior Legacy."

From the abstract:
My lab group in aquatic ecology conducts research based on the foundations of ecology and evolution to understand, conserve, and restore native communities and populations. Lake Superior once supported abundant populations of adfluvial brook trout Salvelinus fontinalis, aka coaster Brook Trout. They develop as juveniles in tributaries and then migrate downriver into coastal waters of Lake Superior where they grow and mature before returning upriver to spawn. Only scattered and severely diminished remnant coaster populations remained by the early 20th century. In this talk I will present a brief overview of the history of the decline of coaster populations along the south shore of Lake Superior, highlighting recent research on the patterns and potential causes of the declines associated with the historical industrial development of the region. Our research documenting the small contemporary population size and critical habitat needs of Salmon Trout River coasters, supported reductions in allowable catches leading to increased protection to aid their recovery. However, multiple anthropogenic stressors continue to limit coaster rehabilitation. Natural sediment dynamics of rivers are important to the biological and physical structures of rivers, yet contemporary watershed disturbances degrade the river habitat through increased erosion and sedimentation that buries larger river substrates needed for Brook Trout spawning. Anthropogenic fine sediments also affect key ecosystem properties of coldwater freestone rivers by leading to reduced primary production. Active restoration to remove aggraded fine sediments has benefited Brook Trout recruitment, supporting the goal to conserve and restore this remnant coaster population in the region. Our related local research uses Passive Integrated Transponder tagging approaches to document an additional migratory population of coaster brook trout in the region. In addition, I will share an overview of our ongoing collaborations that further examine these migratory Brook Trout, their movements in the Keweenaw Waterway, their genetics, and regulations designed to aid the recovery of potential cryptic coaster populations in the region.

New Funding

Rodney Chimner (CFRES/ESC) is the principal investigator on a project that has received a $9,500 research and development co-op/joint agreement from the U.S. Department of Interior, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The project is titled "Assessing Restoration Potential for Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge."

In Print

Claudio Mazzoleni (Physics) and Department of Physics alumni Susan Mathai ’23 (Ph.D. Atmospheric Sciences), Tyler Capek ’21 (Ph.D. Physics) and Swarup China '14 (Ph.D. Atmospheric Sciences) are co-authors of a paper published in Environmental Science & Technology.

The paper, titled "Optical Properties of Individual Tar Balls in the Free Troposphere," was selected for the cover of the journal's November 2023 issue.

Mazzoleni and a multi-institutional team of researchers set out to determine exactly how solar radiation from the sun interacts with individual tar balls dispersed over a mountainous region in northern Italy.

The research assesses the optical properties of individual tar balls to better understand their influence on climate. Tar balls are found in biomass-burning smoke (think smoke from forest fires), and their impact on the Earth’s radiative balance. Understanding the optical properties of tar balls can help reduce uncertainties associated with the contribution of biomass-burning aerosol in current climate models.

Additional co-authors are Daniel Veghte of the Ohio State University; Zezhen Cheng, Libor Kovarik and Kuo-Pin Tseng of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory; and Silvia Bucci and Angela Marinoni of the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate (ISAC)-National Research Council of Italy.

BioSci Seminar Series Speaker: Aimee Marceau

Aimee Marceau, research scientist and genomic surveillance facility lead, Michigan Technological University, will present as part of the Department of Biological Sciences (BioSci) Seminar Series today (Feb. 1) from 3-4 p.m. in GLRC 202.

Marceau will present "Tick Talk - Using MTU’s Genomic Sequencing Lab to Understand Tick-Borne Pathogen Prevalence in the Copper Country."

From the abstract:
MTU’s Genomic Sequencing lab was developed and funded to monitor and track zoonotic and human pathogens. The primary objective of the lab was to sequence COVID variants. However, as COVID infections decreased, the lab changed focus to tracking tick borne pathogens. The Upper Peninsula is at the expanding edge of tick borne pathogens, but data covering the extent of this expansion remains sparse. To increase the number of tick samples and test for the presence of tick-borne pathogens more effectively in the local population, the Genomic Sequencing lab developed a crowdsourced tick collection effort. The lab collected and tested over 900 ticks and found a high prevalence of pathogens in the local tick populations. This effort was only made possible by the availability of state-of-the-art high-throughput sequencing equipment in MTU’s Genomic Sequencing lab. This equipment and the expertise of the laboratory staff are available for general use by campus researchers.

MSE Seminar with Eli Harma

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is hosting a seminar presented by Ph.D. candidate Eli Harma today (Feb. 1) from 1-1:20 p.m. in M&M 610.

The presentation is titled "Modifying a 6xxx Series Aluminum Extrusion Alloy with Sc and Zr to improve the Mechanical Properties and Quench Sensitivity."

Harma is advised by Paul Sanders.

From the abstract:
Lightweighting of vehicle structures by using alloys with a high strength-to-weight ratio is one method used by automotive manufacturers to reduce carbon emissions and increase the range of electric vehicles. The 6xxx series of aluminum extrusion alloys have a high strength-to-weight ratio and good impact absorption properties, making them ideal for lightweight automotive applications. These properties can be modified using additions of Sc and Zr to form the Al3X precipitates phase, which can significantly increase the mechanical properties of the selected alloy. In this study, a 6008 Aluminum alloy is modified with 0.08wt% Sc and 0.16wt% Zr to identify the property changes of peak aged, extruded sheet given air cooled and water quench conditions. It is shown that adding Sc and Zr increased the ultimate tensile strength by 55 MPa in the air cooled condition and 56 MPa in the water quenched condition. While there is no decrease in bend or tear performance.

Speaker bio:
Harma graduated from Michigan Technological University with a bachelor’s degree in materials science and engineering in spring 2022 and a master’s degree in materials science and engineering in summer 2023. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate in his second semester studying aluminum extrusion alloys. Fields of interest include hot deformation flow stress analysis, EBSD analysis, alloy design, materials modeling for FEA models, and additive manufacturing.
