CEEA/ACEG 2017 Conference

Join us in Toronto in June 2017!

Toronto, Ontario

June 4, 2017 - June 7, 2017

The Canadian Engineering Education Association's Annual Conference - CEEA2017 will be hosted by the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario from June 4 to 7, 2017.  

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.

Reflections on 2012 CEEA Conference

U of M hosts 2012 CEEA Conference 

Submitted by Amber

The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Manitoba was pleased to have attendees from 33 of the 43 universities that offer CEAB accredited degrees join us in Winnipeg, the heart of the continent, in June 2012 for the 3rd annual CEEA conference.

It was a highly successful event focussed on the Future of Engineering Education. Pre-conference workshops on Health and Safety, sponsored by Minerva Canada, and CEAB Attributes attracted about 80 enthusiastic attendees.

During the conference more than 90 papers were presented in three concurrent sessions. A half day interactive panel that addressed the conference theme (including presentations from Engineers Canada, the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students, the Engineering Industry and the National Council of Deans of Engineering and Applied Science) prompted such a wide range of responses the attendees agreed to extend the session an extra hour! The panel proceedings are in the process of being transcribed and will be placed on the CEEA website under publications.

Two non-technical highlights of this year’s conference were a special evening spent at Lower Fort Garry for some history, food, and entertainment, and a construction tour of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. CEEA, together with the University of Manitoba and the Institute for the Humanities, also brought in award-winning author, Terry Fallis (Best Laid Plans, The High Road) for a humorous and enlightening talk titled “Where an Engineering Education Can Lead You”.

The Local Arrangements Committee received a great deal of positive feedback on the venue, events, and quality and breadth of presentations. We are now looking forward to the 4th annual CEEA conference at École Polytechnic, June 17 to 20, 2013.
