Innovation and Diversity in Engineering Education

CEEA / ACEG 2017 Conference

Toronto, Ontario
June 4 - June 7, 2017
University of Toronto



All areas of engineering education research and practice are invited, more specific information on the conference will be posted as it becomes available. This conference offers a unique venue for academics and practitioners to discuss recent trends in engineering education and education research.  The conference includes workshops, plenary sessions and technical sessions.

The CEEA2017 Conference theme is “Innovation and Diversity in Engineering Education”. Innovation in Engineering Education can take on a number of diverse forms, including the incorporation of multidisciplinary perspectives, the incorporation of new technologies in the teaching of engineering, and finding new ways to form, deliver and assess learning experiences that reflect a diverse set of required outcomes. However, the conference will also capitalize on the dual meaning of “innovation in engineering education”, in that the conference will give members an opportunity to present research on and engage in discussion about how we teach innovation so as to build on work presented at the 2016 conference. CEEA2017 at the University of Toronto will celebrate our diverse approaches to innovation, with the common goal of improving Engineering Education in Canada and beyond.

Diversity is also relevant to the evolution of engineering in Canada and beyond, and is well reflected in both the University and City of Toronto.  The conference will provide an important opportunity to encourage a focus on how to engage and educate a diverse population of engineering students, taking into account the many dimensions of diversity that exist.  Further, the diversity dimension within our theme would also allow us to celebrate the innovative and diverse approaches to teaching engineering that emerge from the various regional and academic communities across Canada.

Our hope is that merging the dimensions of innovation and diversity will create a nexus that brings together what and how we teach, with who we teach and the engineering community that we are seeking to create. Thus the focus of the 2017 conference will be forward looking, so as to help shape the evolution of engineering education in Canada.

Engineering Leadership and Innovation: Engineering Education Student Meet and Greet – Jillian Seniuk Cicek, Patricia Sheridan, Liz Kuley

CEEA membership has been growing steadily since the first CEEA conference in 2010, and as it has grown, an increasing number of students have committed to engineering education, both as an area of research and as a profession. The primary goal of this workshop is to provide students attending CEEA2017 the opportunity to meet and network with other engineering education students. Participants will engage in a meet and greet activity, followed by round table discussions of successes, challenges, and opportunities that they’ve met in their education and/or in their engineering education research. This workshop is designed to connect with, and build our network of CEEA students, aligning with CEEA’s mission to “enhance the competence and relevance of graduates from Canadian Engineering schools through continuous improvement in engineering education and design education,” and the goal of “engaging students and student groups broadly for input and feedback.” If you are a CEEA student member, please plan to join this workshop! We look forward to meeting you!

CEEA 2017

The 2017 Canadian Engineering Education Association’s Annual Conference will be held at the University of Toronto, in Toronto, Ontario, from June 4th-7th, 2017, with the theme of Innovation and Diversity in Engineering Education. Innovation in Engineering Education can take on multiple forms, including multidisciplinary perspectives, new technologies, and new ways to form, deliver, and assess experiences to help meet desired learning outcomes. We pair innovation with diversity as Engineering Education seeks new techniques to engage and educate an increasingly diverse population of engineering students, taking into account differences in gender, ethnicity, language, educational experiences, sexual orientation, and learning styles.

Call for Papers: We invite papers written in English or French on all areas of engineering education. Attendees will have an opportunity to showcase, learn about, and discuss engineering education through a variety of session types. Participants will be asked to identify their proposal with a stream and preferred presentation modes.

The two streams will be:

  • Research (reports on investigations into teaching, learning, assessment, and accreditation in engineering education)
  • Practice (accounts of teaching, learning, assessment, and accreditation techniques in action)

Sessions will be 80-90 minutes in length, with three different formats:

  • Technical Sessions: 4 related talks (12m max. w/ 6m Q&A)
  • Lightning Talk Sessions: 6 brief presentations, with a focus on either an engineering education challenge OR methods OR results, and is suited to studies in progress or seeking feedback on educational practices, with an emphasis on feedback/discussion  (6m max. w/ 6 m Q&A)
  • Poster Sessions: 5 posters per room, in structured, themed sessions, designed to facilitate dialogue between poster presenters and audience members (10m unstructured time to explore room, 5x10m individual poster conversations)

Presenters will be sorted into technical, lightning talk, and poster session formats based on ranked preference, availability, and session themes.

Authors are invited to submit a one-page extended abstract (approx. 500 words) via EasyChair  by January 20th, 2017, alongside a declaration of (A) appropriate stream and (B) ranking of preferred presentation modes. Successful authors will then be invited to submit full papers of 2-8 pages.

Other Opportunities

In addition to the regular papers described above, there are three other special opportunities.

A. Workshops: Proposals for active workshops, addressing relevant practices, issues or technologies related to classroom practice or Engineering Education Research, are also invited.
