9–13 December 2007 — Melbourne, Australia
Connecting Teaching, Research and Industry through Engineering Education
The AAEE 2007 conference will be held at the University of Melbourne. A major theme will be ‘Connecting Teaching, Research and Industry through Engineering Education’.
Australia, as other developed countries, is in the midst of an engineering boom.
What does industry want from our graduates?
How can we bring teaching, research, and industry needs closer together?
What further education do graduates require once they are in the workplace?
There will be a sequence of industry papers plus a forum to hear from invited industry representatives of their experience with our recent graduates.
The program promises an engineering education extravaganza, intended for both new academics and experienced practitioners:
- A workshop on a Carrick-funded review of Engineering Mathematics on the preceding Friday
- 77 contributed papers and 6 keynote addresses
- Short workshops on Graduate Attributes, Remote Laboratories, Inclusive Curricula, Educational Research Methods, Learning Styles, and Technical Book Writing
- Longer workshops on Learning Styles, Curricula for Sustainable Development, and Problem-Based Learning
- Preliminary findings from the 2007 Review of Engineering Education — together with an open forum with industry and a discussion of discipline needs and industry linkages
- An open forum with the Carrick Institute
- A forum to discuss collaboration within the CDIO initiative
- Judging of the National Finals of the Engineers without Borders Challenge.
There will be an opportunity to forge syndicates of researchers across universities to get involved in formal research in engineering education.
