CESAER, the European association of leading specialised and comprehensive universities of science and technology has published a discussion paper on ´S&T education for 21st century Europe´. The paper is written by Aldert Kamp, 4TU.CEE leader at TU Delft and director of Education for the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, in collaboration with CESAER’s Task Force S&T Education for the 21st Century. The paper explores the trends in engineering sciences and technology, education and society, and provides orientation how universities of S&T and CESAER can change education in Europe to the better.
Ineke ten Dam will temporarily take over 4TU.CEE coordinating activities at the University of Twente. Ineke has long-standing experience in education as a teacher, teacher trainer, consultant and manager. Twelve years of this experience are in the context of ITC, the geoscience and earth observation institute and now the UT faculty with an international profile. The last seven years Ineke worked as the programme manager of the Technical Medicine programme. Her interest areas are innovation, quality enhancement, e-learning, internationalisation and intercultural education. Ineke will also initiate new routes for students to be trained for tutor roles in several courses, so-called learning assistants. Input from international partners and best practises in Twente and other TUs will help define a first training in Spring 2020 to be executed with all relevant parties.
