CEEA-ACEG 2019 Conference:

CEEA-ACEG Institute for Engineering Education Research

Saturday, June 8, 2019

8:45AM - 5:00PM

Location: University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario

Fees:

$200 for CEEA-ACEG Members

$250 for Non-members

This full-day workshop will give participants some of the knowledge required to design research studies in engineering education. The workshop will cover several aspects of the research process, including defining research questions, the role of knowledge traditions in the research process and theoretical and conceptual frameworks, the selection of methodology and supporting methods, analyses of data, and considering and applying for research ethics. Participants will have an opportunity to engage in learning activities that will support their understanding of designing research studies in engineering education.

By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to:

1.     Describe the relevance and positioning of engineering education research as a discipline

2.     Understand the use and application of “frameworks” in engineering and engineering education

3.     Reflect on your own understanding of the nature of knowledge (epistemology) and how it impacts your approach to research

4.     Develop a preliminary research question in engineering education, considering both the role of  theoretical/conceptual frameworks and an epistemological tradition

5.     Identify and select a methodology and set of methods based on the area of inquiry, an epistemological tradition, and a conceptual/theoretical framework

6.     Analyze and draw conclusions from data

7.     Apply ethical human subject research principles in developing an appropriate research strategy

8.     Appreciate one’s own worldview and the importance of reflexivity as an engineering education researcher

Facilitators:
 
Sylvie Doré, École de technologie supérieure  
Susan McCahan, University of Toronto

Institute for Engineering Teaching

Saturday, June 8, 2019

8:45AM - 5:00PM

Location: University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario

Fees:

$200 for CEEA-ACEG Members

$250 for Non-members

Whether you are a new faculty member or in the middle of your teaching career, this full- day workshop will provide perspective, tools, tips, and tricks to help get the most out of your teaching. The IET is highly interactive, with an emphasis on effective, evidence-based methods and best practices in engineering education. We also walk the walk – we deliver the IET using the same techniques we promote, so participants will see them in action from the perspective of a learner. This workshop will explore multiple aspects of course design and delivery through the lens of constructive alignment. With lots of time for applying workshop concepts and for small- and large-group discussion, participants will consider high-level course design, meaningful learning outcomes, engaging learning activities, and effective assessments.  Delivered by a team of award-winning engineering educators, the IET includes plenty of opportunities for input and advice on any course design and delivery questions, and networking with other engineering educators from across the country. 

By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to:

1.     Use constructive alignment to create unified and impactful learning experiences

2.     Select and articulate appropriate learning goals for syllabi and lessons

3.     Devise appropriate learning activities and assessments, and evaluate their effectiveness

4.     Apply advances in cognitive psychology and neuroscience to teaching practice

Facilitators:
Sean Maw, University of Saskatchewan
Peter Ostafichuk, University of British Columbia
Gordon Stubley, University of Waterloo
