Abstract: Most fulfilling career journeys are not scripted or orchestrated.  They are dynamic and fluid and always evolving.  Adobe CIO, Cynthia Stoddard, explains her career journey as a mix of ambition, education and opportunity.  With a 25-year career in IT spanning various industries as well as positions from programmer trainee to head of IT, Stoddard had a breadth of experiences from which she built a successful career.  In her talk, Stoddard will share insights on how she shattered workplace stereotypes, address the skills needed for the next wave of tech innovation, and offer advice for educators to help their students grow their careers. 

Engineering & Computing Education

The 48th Annual Frontiers in Education (FIE) Conference is a major international conference focusing on educational innovations and research in engineering and computing education. We welcome submissions related to educational issues and innovations in computing and engineering at the graduate, undergraduate and pre-college levels. The theme for 2018 is Fostering Innovation Through Diversity. In addition to the traditional FIE topics, we are soliciting submissions for the following thematic tracks: diversity/equity/inclusion in engineering/computing, encouraging and teaching innovation, innovation in software engineering education, upward mobility, and EPICS/service-learning. FIE 2018 continues a long tradition of disseminating results in engineering and computing education. It is an ideal forum for sharing ideas, learning about developments and interacting with colleagues in these fields.
