3TU.CEE hosts CDIO European Regional Meeting 2016

The theme of this Meeting is “Inventing Tomorrow’s Engineering Education”.

3TU.CEE hosts CDIO European Regional Meeting 2016

On 25 & 26 January 2016, the European Regional Meeting of CDIOĀ will beĀ hosted by 3TU.CEE. The theme of this Meeting is ā€œInventing Tomorrowā€™s Engineering Educationā€. During the meeting you can learn about new trends and share best practices of curricular change in Europe.

In the conference we will emphasise how we can successfully adapt engineering programmes to the changing needs of the 21st century, with special attention to multi- and interdisciplinary thinking, cross-cultural collaboration, creativity and innovation skills. We will address curricular developments that are going on for a better student engagement by connecting the first-year courses in fundamental engineering sciences (math, physics, engineering mechanics, programming) to the engineering discipline. We will learn about the developments, successes and failures in our community about new learning environments like blended learning, gaming and virtual labs . Last but not least we will discuss efforts and results how we can create a sustainable professional learning community of lecturers where learning is sparked by personal knowledge and ability to engage others with passion and creativity.

Although making change in engineering education is a serious barrier indeed, the meeting will demonstrate that many universities in the CDIO Initiative are working hard to change their programmes in order to absorb the changes in the world 10 to 15 years from now.

Keep an eye on your mailbox and visit the conference websiteĀ as registering is possible form 15 October onwards. We give away 50 (free) Wild Cards for our educational staff.
