Overview

In June 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.
