Learn MoreMINERVA Safety

June 17, 2013, 09:00 - 12:00

Engineering is defined as the application of mathematics and natural science principals, were the protection of the public is involved. The public and the profession use a broad definition of public safety, in essence, a life cycle approach to safety. It starts with workplace safety during the manufacture of a product or device. Environmental safety is included, and both apply during all phases of product life: from manufacture through transportation and final installation, and includes maintenance, and ultimate disposal.

The Central principal that links these issues is that of hazard and risk. Hazards need to be identified, assessed, leading to a risk-based decision. Workplace safety hazards need to be assessed, just as environmental hazards, financial hazards, and product misuse hazards need to be assessed. Tools for identifying hazards exist and readily fit into the engineering curriculum, regardless of discipline. We will demonstrate the use of the 7 deviations process for hazard identification, and assessment.

This workshop will introduce professors to these principals. We will demonstrate the freely available e-learning tools that can be added to any curriculum. Minerva has received industry funding, with a dollar for dollar MITACS match, for the development of additional teaching modules, and work has begun on 10 of these. We are interested in identifying faculty who are willing towork on the next 10 modules, as well as those who are interested in beta-testing the in-development modules.

The objective of this workshop is to provide an opportunity to create
meaningful and measureable indicators for program improvement. Participants are
asked to bring indicators and course materials from their institutions, as you
will have an opportunity to improve and develop indicators for your institution
with colleagues.

Lassonde Building Room M-2109/M2110

This session will examine the parts of an outcome-based curriculum
improvement process and identify the characteristics of a high quality process.
We will also discuss common flaws that can undermine an outcome-based process,
learn how to identify such flaws, and how to correct them. Short case studies
will be used to give participants an opportunity to apply what they are
learning in the workshop. It will include an overview of approaches taken by
some Canadian engineering programs and describe available resources.

Foundations for Leadership in a University Context

A Workshop on Leadership Skills for Academics

Professors face the challenges of leading in the classroom, in the lab, in administrative assignments and, for some, in the chair’s office.  We all develop plans (including lesson plans) that aim to inspire others to action, are challenged by complex situations, make decisions that affect others, and, ultimately, seek to do good work. This workshop will give participants tools to align actions at work with personal values and vision - to bring their authentic selves to their work.  This is recognized as being particularly challenging in an academic environment.   In the chair’s office, leading in the classroom or leading a large research group, the workload demands decisiveness and speedy action all too frequently and provides little time to reflect on the source of our personal power.  With many stakeholders vying for attention and conflicting values and interests we need to understand and appreciate ourselves in order to lead authentically.

The workshop will be highly participatory, providing tools, guidance and time for personal reflection and renewal that will increase your effectiveness at work.

Values

Our values are the foundation for all we do.  At least they should be.  Sometimes it is a real challenge to live and work fully aligned with our values.  Values light our path.

Beliefs

What do we believe about our values?  If one of your values is “excellence in execution” then a belief that follows might be “operational excellence is the key to success.”  Beliefs articulate our values.

Operating Principles

How do we act and be true to our values and beliefs?   Operating principles guide our actions.

Vision

To create a personal vision for the future it is useful to reflect on our personal history.  Then we are grounded in who we are.  Vision creates the horizon.

The workshop will be led by University of Toronto Professor Doug Reeve. Professor Reeve has a wealth of experience as an academic and business leader: chair of an engineering department for ten years; founding director of a multidisciplinary graduate research centre (in pulp and paper) for fourteen years; and for the last three years (founding) director of the Centre for Leadership Education in Engineering.
