Engineering Education Futures Forum

At the last ACCESS meeting Jocelyne Poirier informed us of the Engineering Education Futures Forum. The Forum will start on the evening of the 25 March and will conclude on the 28 March.

The aim of the Forum is:
- to bring together a group of key national and international engineering education stakeholders to consider the nature of engineering and engineering education in the 2015-2020 window.
- to present a series of wide-ranging 'vision statements' from key participants to help conceive the goals, curricula structure and implementation strategies for future engineering education.
- to design innovative curricular pathways supported by appropriate pedagogies for next-generation engineering programs that help address future graduate attributes as well as bring engineering science and practice into effective partnership.
