Workshop: Educating engineers for 21st century contexts

June 1 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

We invite you to join the growing community of engineering educators

‘Engineering-in-context’ (EiC) is the creation of a learning environment that simulates professional practice and develops professional engineering competence and employability amongst students. EiC is strongly aligned with a pedagogy of employability, and designed to enable deeper levels of learning. EiC is motivated by factors such as:

  • Students are co-producers of their own learning
  • Students enjoy project & enquiry-based approaches
  • Students become creative and have fun

Join us to learn about collaborative approaches which are not staff labour intensive and make teaching fun!

Facilitators:

The winning Engineers without Borders (2016) SHU team under leadership of Dr Jeff Waldock
