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.
