Speaker: Matheus Oliveira D’andrada
Engineers need to draw from a blend of forms of knowledge to realise technically, socially, economically, and environmentally responsible solutions to complex problems. Integrating these values in mathematics education for engineering students, however, remains a challenge, especially at the programme and institutional levels. On the one hand, it is imperative that mathematics modules equip students with the technical knowledge and skills that will allow them to engage with advanced engineering concepts later in their course. On the other hand, it is also clear that mathematics education should also support the development of social, affective, and meta-cognitive skills for engineering students. In this webinar, I will discuss UCL’s experiences in the design and implementation of faculty-wide curricula, activities, and assessment of mathematics that is primarily taught through engineering applications within societal contexts.
