CEEA-ACEG 2019 Call for Papers
Contributions to the conference are in the format of posters, presentations or panel discussions.
CEEA-ACEG 2019 – June 9–12, 2019 in Ottawa, Ontario
The Annual Conference of the Canadian Engineering Education Association will be held at the University of Ottawa, Ottawa, ON, from June 9–12, 2019, with the theme of “Learning to learn.” This overarching theme will be supported by the following sub-themes, all of which will help direct the organization of the conference into its various sessions: Engaging the Broader Engineering Community; Facilitating Student Engagement; Creativity and Innovation in Engineering; Pedagogy in Engineering; New Teaching and Learning Paradigms; The Engineering Design Experience; The First Year Student Experience; Towards an Outcomes-Based Education: Approaches, Assessment and Accreditation.
Engineers will form an integral part of the global leadership team that will handle the difficult challenges of the 21st century. To ensure they are successful in these tasks, we must, in addition to providing technical training, foster the development of a wide range of educational, career, and life competencies in our students. Come join us for important conversations about practices and strategies that positively impact student abilities, resourcefulness, persistence, and success.
Call for Papers: We invite papers written in English or French on all topics 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 classify their work into one of two streams (teaching practice or educational research), and to identify their preferred presentation mode.
Authors submitting full papers will be provided feedback and will have until May 6, 2019, to submit a final paper with revisions, if revisions were requested. Authors who attend to the requested revisions will have their papers marked as “peer reviewed” in the conference proceedings. Authors who are not requested to complete revisions will also have their papers marked as “peer reviewed” in the conference proceedings. Authors who decide not to submit a revised paper will still be invited to participate in the conference, without the “peer reviewed” indication in the conference proceedings. All CEEA-ACEG authors will be required to review two abstracts and papers.
Both streams cover works that relate to teaching, learning, assessment, accreditation, student support, professional development, and other aspects of engineering education. The differences in the streams are as follows:
Sessions will be 80–90 minutes in length, with three different presentation modes:
Extended Abstract Submission: All authors, regardless of the stream or presentation type, are invited to submit a one-page extended abstract (approx. 500 words) via EasyChair by January 7, 2019, alongside a declaration of (A) appropriate stream and (B) preferred presentation mode(s). All abstracts will be reviewed and evaluated based on how they address the following elements, as appropriate:
For panel discussion and poster sessions, full papers are not mandatory, but are encouraged.
Peer-reviewed Paper Submission: The abstracts will be reviewed for their overall suitability in the conference. Authors will then be invited to submit their full 4–8 page papers by a subsequent deadline of February 18, 2019. These papers will be evaluated based on the criteria listed above, and will either be accepted, accepted with revisions, or not pass the peer review process. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and marked peer reviewed. The final version of peer-reviewed papers is due on May 6, 2019. In addition, each author will need to agree to review two (2) other paper submissions if they wish for their paper to be published in the proceedings as a “peer-reviewed” paper.
A. Workshops: We invite proposals for workshops covering relevant aspects of teaching and learning in engineering. Workshops on practices that positively impact the engineering teaching environment and students’ abilities, resourcefulness, persistence, and success are particularly sought. Topics of interest include:
Workshops last 90 minutes. Proposals for workshops spanning two or more 90-minute periods will be considered. All regular workshops are scheduled for Sunday, June 9, 2019.
Workshop proposals can be submitted by completing the following form (deadline January 7, 2019):
Workshops will be considered based on clarity, level of detail, interactivity and relevance to engineering education.
B. CEEA-ACEG Institute for Engineering Teaching and Educational Research (IETER): CEEA-ACEG Institute workshops are opportunities to dive deeper into the practice of teaching and course design and/or education research, all with a distinct engineering focus. The IETER will run on Saturday, June 8, and further details will be published prior to the commencement of conference registration.
C. Undergraduate Student Poster Competition: As part of the student program at the conference, undergraduate students are encouraged to create a poster and enter it in competition. The poster should showcase the student’s involvement in a project that contributes to the understanding or improvement of the educational experience for Engineering students. Undergraduate students who enter the competition will receive free conference registration (includes lunch). One winner and two runners-up will be chosen. Details of the submission process will be announced in the near future.
