Creating an Environment of Student-Centered Responsibility for Their Own Learning

Peter J. Shull

Penn State University, United States of America

Faculty often speak of students not taking responsibility: not reading assignments, missing homework, or not participating in lab assignments and still expect a good grade! Simply put, many students are not taking responsibility for their learning. But I don’t believe that the reason is because students don’t want to do so. My question is “So, what are we (faculty) going to do about it?” The common reply is “It’s their responsibility, they are in college!” However, doing nothing does not produce change.

This workshop is about providing faculty with proven tools that instill student responsibility for their own learning. We will focus on pragmatic and effective methods that create a clear understanding of what is meant by student responsibility for learning. It clarifies both effective and ineffective behaviors of both students and faculty, and how to instill these skills. Specific active and experiential lessons will be presented in a highly animated format.

Outcomes (Competency) Based Education Planning

Lueny Morell

InnovaHiEd, Puerto Rico (U.S.)

Competencies are driving engineering education curricula worldwide. Yet planning and managing outcomes (competency) based education is not an easy task. This workshop will cover fundamental steps in the managing of outcomes (competency) based education. From defining competencies and learning outcomes and how they can be defined with stakeholders to ways on how to distributing them throughout the curriculum to understanding how these competencies can be developed in students and developing an assessment strategy to measure the level of attainment. The workshop provides a primer of the fundamental steps in developing an outcomes based education and is designed for engineering education leadership, faculty, industry and others interested in learning what it takes to develop a strategy for implementing or innovating the curricula based on outcomes (competency).

Remote Labs and Online Experimentation offer a rich opportunity to learners by allowing them to control real equipment at distance in order to conduct scientific investigations. Remote Labs and Online Experimentation build on top of numerous emerging technologies for supporting remote experiments and promoting the immersion of the learner in virtual environments recreating the real experience.

In this workshop, we will present the methodologies and tools we have developed in the FORGE and Go-Lab projects for building remote labs. In particular, the scope of this workshop will be the following:

1. New online teaching and learning methods will be presented for supporting scientific experimentation via the production and use of interactive learning resources, such as eBooks.

2. Participants will have the opportunity to try a variety of interactive learning resources produced by the FORGE and Go-Lab projects, as well as different tools for producing such resources.

Crafting complex problems for a typical engineering curriculum

Khairiyah Mohd-Yusof, Syed Ahmad Helmi

Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Malaysia

The current world-wide needs for engineers to solve complex problems resulted in complex problem solving to be heavily required for accreditation of engineering programs under the Washington Accord. Nevertheless, the question remains on how to actually develop the skills for solving complex problems among engineering students and how can these problems be crafted so that they are suitable and manageable for a typical engineering course. This workshop provides hands-on activities for crafting engineering problems. Participants will be introduced to the basics of crafting open ended problems systematically, with special emphasis on developing essential skills and knowledge for the workplace. Characteristics of good problems and how to ensure problems that enhance learning will be discussed. The facilitators will also illustrate approaches to include scaffolding of the skills for supporting students learning as part of the problem activity.

Abstract: A more resilient world calls for new generations of engineers better prepared to address the challenges of the decades to come. Digital innovation tools can bring the indispensable context into the classroom. Among powerful instruments conceptualized to convey the magnitude of issues to be addressed, the grand challenges for engineering defined by the US National Academy of Engineering are an efficient vector of motivational contextualization as well as socio-technical complexities to mobilize students into purposeful activities. When such challenges meet the power of digital representations, the learning experience takes new dimensions and produces the systemic thought process students need to cultivate for better careers in a better world. The presentation provides a lively tour of some shining examples from industry and academia across the planet and opens new perspective in educational practices.

There are many opportunities and challenges for universities and organizations in the development of continuing engineering education programs. Engineering professional development is not something circumstantial or exceptional. It is a MUST for every university Dean to provide lifelong learning opportunities for alumni and professional engineers and for the education/training manager in the maintenance of a competent workforce within the organization. Successful academic-industry partnerships are also based upon critical success factors which for some may also be considered critical failure factors. This panel discussion will focus on the challenges facing both industry and academia in developing and maintaining successful continuing education programs and will highlight opportunities many universities in the United States and Spain have found to be rewarding in the delivery of professional development programs. Audience participation will be highly encouraged.

Paul Marca, Stanford University

 Summary: The world is changing very quickly and the four year time frame devoted to educating an engineer is becoming more challenged with providing both the depth and diversity of topics required for globally competent engineers. As advances in engineering are quickly occurring, the knowledge obtained in universities is rapidly needing to be updated and augmented.  Thus, an engineering education for the future, will likely need to begin with activities prior to college admission and will certainly need to extend along one’s career path. Thus, the thinking of engineering education needs to be expanded well beyond an undergraduate and graduate degree. This session will explore the ramifications of such changes, the implications for curricular reform and the extension of learning through one’s career.

Engineering Education for Industry 4.0

Sabina Jeschke

RWTH Aachen, Germany

Based on the technological concept of cyber-physical systems and the internet of things, the vision of “industry 4.0” is characterized by highly individualized and at the same time cross-linked production processes. Among other aspects it entails the vision of the smart factory, allows cars to drive without a driver and provides the infrastructure for collaboration in the “global village”. In consideration of future employment domains, engineering students have to be prepared to meet the demands of society 4.0 and industry 4.0 – resulting from the characteristics of the fourth industrial revolution. The talk will discuss three hypotheses, which underline implications for engineering education:
- “Informatics is the new latin”: Smart factories require engineers who “speak code”!
- “Startups are the new motor for the economy”: Innovation comes from fresh minds!
- “Transparency is the new green": Learning Analytics will change the ways we teach!

In the context of the development from purely document based management systems to complex virtual learning environments (VLEs), a shift towards more interactive and collaborative components within higher educational e-learning is absolutely necessary. As a result, engineering education is faced with a large potential field of research, which ranges from the technical development and didactical conception of new VLEs to new forms of human-machine-interaction – who wouldn’t want to work hand in hand with a robot?

Using Storytelling Techniques in Professional Education and Training

David Guralnick

Kaleidoscope Learning, United States of America

Successful professional education and training experiences reach beyond the simple delivery of information, creating an environment in which learners can gain a deep understanding of concepts and how to apply them in practice. Storytelling can be a valuable technique, by grabbing learners' attention and providing them with realistic situations and examples, so that their learning can transfer to their real-life experiences.

In this session, I will explore successful uses of stories in online professional education and training courses. I will consider the use of stories in areas outside of education and training, discuss ways in which stories can be useful in educational contexts, and show brief examples. Finally, I will discuss how storytelling techniques can apply to education and training in a variety of subject areas.
