Engagement and Impact

Conference 2023

Announcements regarding abstract acceptance will be sent starting January 9, 2023, and final papers are due to Oxford Abstracts on Monday, March 6, 2023.

June 18-21, 2023, be inspired by the Okanagan through its surroundings, culture, and nimble post-secondary engineering institutions that embrace exceptional engineering education and research. UBC Okanagan and Okanagan College provide intimate and dynamic environments to co-host the proposed 2023 Canadian Engineering Education Association Annual Conference.

Conference Theme and Key Elements

Engaging students in their learning impacts students; and those students will impact their surroundings. Within the theme of engagement and impact, key elements are:

  • Leadership – how various learning practices and opportunities support students’ development as engineering leaders in their communities, within academia and outside of it.
  • Sustainability – how sustainability informs teaching practices and is used to engage students with current societal calls for sustainable design.
  • Entrepreneurship and Design – how incorporating entrepreneurship education into engineering courses and programs support students in their entrepreneurial ambitions and efforts.
  • Diversity and Inclusivity – how diversity and inclusivity are informing the teaching practices of engineering, and the impact their implementations have on students.
