IFEES and GEDC is partnering with AEEA to present the WEEF & GEDC 2022 conference and events. We invite educators, students, engineers and industry representatives to engage in meaningful conversations around the future of engineering education globally. We are specifically focusing this year on how we have adapted to the global disruption brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, looking at this topic from the perspective of meeting the challenges with integrative, holistic, and sustainable engineering and engineering education practice.
The theme of the conference has been broadly arranged under sub-themes integrative, holistic, and sustainable, leading to questions like:
- How can we integrate our diverse global environments within engineering education, to build more resilient and sustainable learning environments for all?
- How do the systemic, cognitive, and affective aspects of our daily experiences coordinate to provide a holistic and humanising approach to engineering and engineering education?
- How can we leverage our communities to meet the global challenges and rapidly changing environments with sustainable solutions?
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Diversity and Inclusion in Engineering Education
- Industry and Engineering Education
- Development of Engineering Educators
- Student and lecturer well-being
- Future of Engineering and Engineering Education
We look forward to hosting you in Cape Town and sharing this vibrant event with our dynamic community of engaged engineers, educators and students.
