FIE Award Banquets and List of Award Winners

You are here

A number of ASEE/ERM and IEEE awards are presented at the FIE conference each year. There are three FIE conference awards:

  • The Benjamin Dasher Award is given each year to the best paper/presentation at the annual Frontiers in Education Conference (FIE),
  • The Helen Plants Award is given for the best non-traditional presentation at the FIE conference, and
  • The Ronald Schmitz award to an individual member for their service to the FIE conference.

In addition, ERM presents the ERM Distinguished Service award to an ERM member for their service to the ERM division.

The IEEE awards are presented by both the Education Society and the Computer Society. Each of these societies gives their members the freedom to have any award presented at any conference. Thus, the awards given by IEEE each year are different. Please check the program books posted for the actual awards given each year.
