Prof. Suzanne Kresta, University of Alberta

Innovation and Reliability in the design process: A both/and possibility

Venue: Pavillon MacKay-Lassonde, Ecole Polytechnique Room M-1010

Bio: Suzanne Kresta is co-editor of the Handbook of Industrial Mixing and a
Professor at the University of Alberta. She has won numerous awards both for
her technical work and for her leadership in education: most recently the
Rutherford Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Education (2011) from the
University of Alberta, the North American Mixing Forum Award for Excellence and
Sustained Contributions to Mixing Science and Practice (2004), and the Academic
Women’s Association Woman of the Year Award (2012). In a recent list of the 21
Most Influential Contributions to Mixing Research (2011), 2 of her publications
were identified. She is also an Iron Ring Warden and a member of APEGA Council.
She credits much of her success to early mentoring from two 3M Fellows, Phil
Wood and Don Woods, and to Alan Blizzard, Dale Roy, and Bente Roed, all
nationally recognized faculty developers. She has continued their legacy at the
University of Alberta with the (New) Faculty Forums, a series of professional
development workshops which have been so popular that they have now expanded to
the whole faculty – not just new professors. Her interests in education are
focussed on student learning in the design process and she currently teaches
both mass and energy balances and the first of two senior design courses.

Innovation
and Rigor in the Design Process: A Both/And Possibility

Engineering Professors
in general, and Design Professors in the particular, face a difficult moral
dilemma. We have a responsibility to teach students to a very high standard of
rigor, critical thinking, and analysis – but the great joy of engineering is finding
a creative solution that makes a difference in people’s lives. The perpetual
dilemma is finding a balance between these two conflicting values and goals. In
this talk I propose a both/and perspective which embraces the diversity of the
roles we play: educator and evaluator; critic and catalyst; expert and learner.
The animosity which sometimes polarizes professors as we struggle with these dichotomies
can be turned around to amplify and reinforce both values in a solution which
balances our teaching and learning. Successful strategies which build affective
domain strengths related to innovation and deep understanding of core concepts will
be presented with their twin teaching strategies, those which build the cognitive
domain strength needed for rigor and accuracy in solutions.

Canada: Winning as a Sustainable Energy Superpower

 

Dr. Richard Marceau

Vice-President (Research), Memorial University of Newfoundland

President, Canadian Academy of Engineering

 

CANADA HAS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY to transition from a world “energy superstore” to a “sustainable energy superpower”. Canada is one of a few nations to have the physical resources, the financial community, and the science, technology and human capital to become a sustainable energy superpower. Canada’s historically successful “big project innovation strategy” can establish Canada as a sustainable energy superpower through innovative private-public partnerships in nine 21st century big projects. The proposed new projects emphasize sustainable development and the upgrading of energy resources into value-added products for greater economic stability and opportunity, increased wealth, and a continued high quality of life for all Canadians.

 

RICHARD MARCEAU is Vice President, Research at Memorial University of Newfoundland. He has also served as Provost and Vice President Academic at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, as Dean of the Faculty of Engineering at Université de Sherbooke, and as Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at École Polytechnique de Montréal. He earned a BEng and a PhD from McGill University, and an MScA from École Polytechnique de Montréal. Prior to his academic career, he worked twelve years in industry. He has served on numerous volunteer boards, such as Parkwood National Historic Site as Chair. He is the President of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, and he is a registered professional engineer in Ontario and Québec.

Abstract

Climate change, exhaustion of limited resources and environmental damage are key problems facing society. In simple terms, clean energy and sustainable practices are the answer. What role can engineering education play in developing solutions, informing the public and policy makers about these complex issues , and moving the agenda towards action?
