CEEA-ACEG Institute for Engineering Education Research

The CEEA-ACEG Institute for Engineering Education Research (IEER) will run on Saturday June 8, 2019 (immediately preceding the conference). The workshop will be held at the University of Ottawa. The fee for the Institute is $200.00 plus HST. 

This full-day workshop will give participants some of the knowledge required to design research studies in engineering education. Through activities, 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.

CEEA-ACEG Institute for Engineering Teaching

The CEEA-ACEG Institute for Engineering Teaching will run on Saturday June 8, 2019 (immediately proceeding the conference) and concurrently with IEER and Project Buildathon 2. The workshop will be held at the University of Ottawa. The fee for the Institute is $200.00 plus HST. 

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.

CEEC Project Buildathon 2

This workshop is a follow-up to the successful Project Buildathon held Friday Dec. 7th 2018 at the University of Toronto, with 20 participants from 10 different institutions across Canada. The workshop involved an ‘Open Space’ format, where participants developed the agenda, and worked together on topics of shared interests and priorities. Almost 70% of attendees rated it a 9 or 10 with respect to how valuable they found the day, and every single participant indicated they would attend a similar event in the future. That future will become a reality this June, as the Project Buildathon 2 kicks-off ahead of the CEEA-ACEG Annual Conference in Ottawa.

 

The Goal of Project Buildathon 2:

To host an open space for engineering educators to come together around a common theme to find alignment between priorities and opportunities for sharing, collaboration, and networking. The idea for the event is to recruit participants who will benefit from working collaboratively with each other for a day. The theme of this Project Buildathon will be:

Developing curriculum change strategies, with a focus on teaching approaches for non-technical transferable skills

The specific workshop objectives are for participants to:

1)     Build relationships – new and existing,

2)     Build projects – new and existing.

 

What are “Non-technical transferable skills”?

There is much debate over the name of this category of skills: non-technical; transferable; professional; complementary; “soft”, etc. But we are all talking about the same things:

  • Leadership
  • Communications
  • Teamwork
  • Interdisciplinary collaboration
  • Innovation and Business Acumen
  • Lifelong Learning and Metacognition
  • Impact on Society
  • Technological Stewardship
  • Empathy
 

 

Also relevant, are the modes of incorporating these skills into the curriculum effectively through different change strategies, which could include:

 

  • Multi-Course / Program Year Overhauls
  • Design Spine Scaffoldings
  • Embedded communication expectations and support and resources
  • Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
  • Indigenous Perspectives
  • Student Mental Health and Well Being
 

 

Workshop Format:

The event will resemble a student entrepreneurship or ‘hackathon’ event, with high energy levels, a strong outcome focus, and teamwork – except it will be educators having all the fun! The workshop consists of one main facilitation approach: Open Space. The workshop format resembles that of an ‘extended conference coffee break’, where participants are empowered to only engage in what they find most valuable, which inherently leads to the strengthening of relationships and development of a network of innovative engineering educators.

At the beginning of the workshop participants propose ideas for topics they want to engage with. The topics are consolidated, and an agenda for the day is built, with everyone free to participate in whichever sessions they choose. There are some guiding principles to ensure this process works, and they are focused on shifting ownership to each individual participant to make sure they are always either learning or contributing.

Next Steps: As we get closer to the event, registered workshop participants will be contacted with more specific details. Event registration is capped at 40, so be sure to register early! Feel free to contact the event organizer, Steve, with any questions or comments:

Keynote Speaker: Jaime Bonilla (Tec Monterrey)

Educating beyond expectations

A hyper-accelerated changing world is waiting for the engineers that we -the universities- are forming today. Their readiness to tackle new problems and their ability to create value is under a considerable pressure from the university stakeholders. In addition, there is the perception that knowledge it is just a click away and that the cost-benefit ratio for a university education is growing year after year. Therefore, we are forced to reflect and design new educational models that could convert the external threats the University has, into opportunities to form engineers ready to create not just a better world but a new one. A new educational model called TEC21 is a plausible option to overpass the expectations of the University stakeholders by educating students on how to become a competent engineer not only while in College but throughout life.

Keynote Speaker: Jean-Michel Lemieux (Shopify)

Inside DevDegree, a big bet on software education

Universities have been preparing engineers without much help from industry. Meanwhile, industry has been complaining that universities are not doing enough to prepare engineers. After 10 years of hiring thousands of software developers, Jean-Michel Lemieux decided it was time to turn upside down the way software developers are trained by closing the gap between universities and industry. The result was DevDegree, which is a first of a kind work-integrated Bachelor of Computer Science where students both learn and do in real-time. In his keynote address, Jean-Michel will introduce how DevDegree works and share lessons gleaned – both good and bad – and the plans to drive its further evolution. 

Jean-Michel Lemieux is Chief Technical Officer at Shopify, having joined the company in 2015. Prior to joining Shopify, he served as the Vice President of Engineering at Atlassian and as the Chief Architect for Rational Team Concert, a division of IBM.

In 2016 Jean-Michel founded DevDegree (devdegree.ca), a first of a kind work-integrated Bachelor of Computer Science program. He is also co-author of the book, Eclipse Rich Client Platform and has filed two U.S. patents on software configuration management. Jean-Michel holds a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Ottawa.
