Overview

Conference Registration will open be open from April 8 — June 1, 2022

 

Join us for an opportunity to network with your fellow peers, stay informed about the industry and share ideas that create lasting impact.

We want to grow a critical mass engaged in engineering and science education as well as leadership that is committed to reimaging engineers and scientists of tomorrow.

Our Theme

Transforming Learners to Transform Our World is the theme for the CEEA Conference held at the Lassonde School of Engineering in 2022. Our goal throughout the CEEA conference is to create a culture that hums with curiosity, welcomes ambiguity and is always hungry for learning. We embrace taking risks and making change and through the CEEA conference want to grow a critical mass engaged in engineering and science education and leadership that is committed to reimaging engineers and scientists of tomorrow – ‘Our Learners’.

Why This Matters

Our Learners will play a crucial role in shaping the future and have a greater responsibility to address the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and thereby tackle the world’s ‘Wicked’ problems. How do we ensure that we can engage our Learners to solve relevant, complex and socially impacted problems? How do we bring together people who are not afraid to push, bend, twist and break apart the boundaries of traditional engineering practice? Through a collaboratorium focused conference program, we want to co-create new models for Transforming Learners to Transform Our World. Our proposed theme and program for the conference will focus on imagining an engineer that cannot yet be imagined, to meet the problems of tomorrow that are yet to be conceived.

Submission Overview

We aim to develop a program that promotes and grapples with the challenges of transdisciplinary teaching and research that is essential to address today’s—and tomorrow’s—wicked problems.

We are welcoming papers, panels, posters, “collabratoriums,” and workshops related to all areas of engineering, but in particular encourage you to consider submissions that speak to the notion of transforming learners to transform our world, including on these sub-themes:

The Learner Journey: Creating Future Engineers for Society

  • Active and Integrated Work Learning
  • Hand’s (Off) Learning – Online and in person
  • Mixed Reality in Engineering Education – Virtual, Augmented Reality, Gamification and more
  • Project Based Engineering Programs – non-traditional program structures

Society and Engagement: Global Technological Stewardship

  • Human Rights
  • Community and Global Engagement
  • Humanitarian and Peace Engineering
  • How the Engineering Profession Portrays itself to Society

Engineers Advancing UN Sustainability Goals
& Canadian Grand Engineering Challenges

  • Integrating SDGs & Grand Challenges into curriculum
  • Innovation in Development – water, energy, climate
  • Innovation in Engineering Design

Shifting the Profession towards Social Good: Innovation for IDDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Decolonization, Equity, Access) – Do we represent the society we serve?

  • Engaging K-12 in engineering for society
  • Co-curricular & extra-curricular opportunities
  • Undergraduate and Graduate curriculum
  • Decolonization of Engineering Education

 

We invite submissions in English or French.

Participants will be asked to classify their work into one of two streams (teaching practice or educational research) and one of five different session types. Both streams cover work that relates to teaching, learning, assessment, accreditation, student support, professional development, and other aspects of engineering education.

The differences in the streams are as follows:

Engineering Education Practice:

  • Includes accounts of innovations, experiences, and evidence-based practices in engineering education.

Engineering Education Research:

  • includes reports of investigations, meta-analyses, and data-informed development of new methods, tools, and frameworks.

All session types are open to both “practice” and “research” streams.
The five different session types are as follows:

Podium Talks:

These are 15 min. (+ 5 minutes Q&A) that aim to present completed work. Papers will be organized into thematic sessions, with typically 4-5 papers presented per session. Podium sessions will be 90-minutes in length. Papers in this session type will be expected to undergo a full peer review.

Lightning Talks:

These sessions include 4-6 brief (6 minutes + nominally 4 minutes Q&A) “lightning talk”- style presentations grouped around a common theme, followed by a longer discussion period that is moderated by the session chair. This session type is ideally suited to works-in-progress, preliminary research findings, or exploratory studies and innovations. Lightning Talk sessions will be 75-minutes in length. Presenters are encouraged to submit a paper for full peer review.

Poster:

Posters will be displayed with an opportunity for interaction between presenters and conference attendees. This session type is ideally suited to the succinct, graphical representations of data and ideas that will encourage conversations. Presenters are encouraged to submit a paper for full peer review.

Panel Discussion:

Panel discussions are designed to facilitate dialogue between panellists from different institutions, different sectors (for example industry and academia) and audience members. The extended abstract for a potential panel discussion should include the names of at least three panellists, a proposed moderator, and an abstract that describes the focus of the panel and a plan for moderating the audience discussion. Each participant will have an opportunity to speak on the topic via a short presentation, and a longer discussion between all panellists and the audience will follow. Panel discussions will be 75-minutes and submissions related to the conference theme are highly encouraged. We also encourage submissions from the CEEA-ACEG Special Interest Groups.

“Collaboratorium” / Unconference:

These sessions will be comprised of three-to-five roundtable sessions happening concurrently in a single room. Each presenter will provide a brief—3 – 4  minutes—overview or prompt around a challenge re:lated to one of the conference sub-themes, and then facilitate a group discussion at the table (16 – 17 minutes); notes will be taken on a whiteboard/easel. At the end of each 20-minute period, participants will switch to another table of their choice. These sessions are ideally suited for projects underway, ongoing educational challenges, or approaches that might be adaptable to other contexts. The goal is for each conversation at a roundtable to be tailored to the goals of the participants at the table. The extended abstract for a “Collaboratorium”/Unconference Session should include an abstract that summarizes the challenge and three to five prompts that will be used to promote discussion. We encourage individual (a single roundtable) and group (three to five complementary roundtable) proposals.

Extended Abstract Submission 

All authors, regardless of the stream or requested presentation type, are invited to submit an extended abstract (500 words maximum) via [submission system] by January 7, 2022. All abstracts will be reviewed and evaluated based on how they address the following elements, as appropriate (depending on the stream and session type):

For Podium Talks, Lightning Talks, and Posters:

  • Motivation for the work, with reference to relevant literature
  • Clear conceptual/theoretical framework
  • Comprehensible description of method and methodologies
  • Results/conclusions of interest to the membership

For Panel Discussion and “Collaboratorium”/Unconference Sessions:

  • Clear topic for consideration
  • Clear plan for facilitating discussion among attendees

When authors submit an abstract, they will be asked to indicate their areas of interest and expertise in engineering education for the purpose of abstract and paper review. Abstracts/papers will be assigned based on these areas of interest and expertise. All authors will be asked to indicate whether their abstract is practice or research oriented, and their preferred presentation format. Authors submitting in the Lightning Talk and Poster categories will be asked to indicate whether they intend to participate in the full paper review process.

It is expected that all authors collecting data from human subjects have approval from a university-based ethics review board for their research; an attestation will be required in the final paper submission.  All authors will receive an indication of whether their abstract is accepted for the conference by February 19, 2022, and for those submitting papers for peer review, feedback on their abstract that can be used in writing the paper.

 Peer-Reviewed Paper Submission 

Authors opting to submit a 4-8 page paper for peer review will be required to do so by March 25, 2022. Papers will be reviewed, based on the criteria listed above, and authors will receive feedback on April 15, 2022, with an indication that the paper is accepted as-is, or that revisions are required. Where revisions are required, authors will be asked to submit a revised paper by April 29, 2022. For Authors submitting to the Podium Talks category: if no changes are recommended, or if recommended changes are made, these papers will be marked as “peer reviewed” and will be scheduled for a Podium session.

Authors who elect not to revise their paper will not be scheduled for a Podium session, but may be invited to present in a Lightning Talk or Poster session.  All papers and posters will be made available during the conference and will be published in the CEEA-ACEG proceedings after the conference.

 Call for Workshops 

We invite proposals for workshops covering relevant aspects of teaching and learning in engineering for the CEEA-ACEG 2022 Annual Conference. Workshops are particularly sought around the conference theme of “Transforming Learners to Transform Our World” and the related sub-themes:

  • The learner journey
  • Society and engagement
  • Advancing sustainability
  • The shift to social good

Workshops last 90 minutes and only workshops that prioritize active participant engagement will be considered. Workshop proposals must include:

  • Workshop Facilitators (name, institution, email)
  • 2 – 3 specific Learning Objectives
  • Brief overview of participatory learning activities
  • Consideration of how the workshop will be adapted between in-person and online modalities
  • 200-word description to be included in conference registration

All regular workshops will be scheduled for Sunday, June 19, 2022.  Workshop proposals can be submitted via the website by Friday, February 4, 2022. Please note that there are a limited number of workshop spaces and cannot guarantee acceptance of all submissions. Workshops will be considered based on clarity of learning objectives, interactivity, and relevance to engineering education and the conference themes. Proposals for workshops spanning two or more 90-minute periods will be considered.

Speakers

Randy Hermann, P.Eng.


University of Manitoba


KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Randy Herrmann, P.Eng., Randy is the Director of the Engineering Access Program (ENGAP) at the University of Manitoba.  ENGAP is a support program designed to assist First Nation, Métis and Inuit students seeking an engineering degree. He graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1988 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Geological Engineering. For ten years he worked as a geotechnical engineer and a project manager before taking on his current role.

 

Over the years Randy’s work with Canadian Indigenous communities and within the engineering field has shown him the lack of engineers of First Nation, Metis, and Inuit ancestry and the obstacles faced by these students to obtain a degree.  His desire to help change these factors and make it easier for Indigenous students to pursue an engineering degree led him to become Director of ENGAP, a position he has held since 1998.

 

He is a Fellow of Engineers Canada, and a member of the Canadian Academy of Engineering. He is also a member of Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba and the Manitoba Metis community.
