Blog TU/e Innovation Day 2015
Op een prachtige nazomerdag vond op 1 oktober de Innovation Day van het 3TU Centre for Engineering EducationĀ plaats op de campus van de TU Eindhoven. De vlag die bij de entree van het Auditorium in de zon wapperde met de tekst 'Where innovation startsā€™ verwoordt de boodschap treffend. En de geanimeerde gesprekken bij de twintig posterpresentaties zorgden voor een energieke entree.

Investigating Interdisciplinary Engineering Education
The 3TU.CEE-project 'Investigating Interdisciplinary Engineering Education' looks into the current state of affairs around interdisciplinarity at the three universities of technology. Interdisciplinary engineering education is currently seen as a fruitful way to prepare contemporary students to become engineers of the future. The first question that immediately comes to mind is about the definition of 'interdisciplinary'. And also, how does interdisciplinary relate to notions of multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary?

Local innovation projects in Delft, Twente and Eindhoven
Currently interesting projects are being developed at our 3 technical universities. A group of researchers at TU Eindhoven is researching Multi-Disciplinary Course Assessment while Marco Lub's PhD research focusses on the future urbanism education. A pilot at the University of Twente with Applied Mathematics will investigate to what extent digital testing is possible without losing quality.

Overview of PhD’s in Engineering Education now online
One of the main goals of 3TU.CEE is the dissemination of knowledge about Engineering Education. One way we do this, is by building a PhD-network. Numerous PhD students are conducting research within Higher Engineering Education, but they are rarely familiar with each otherā€™s research. 3TU.CEE has taken the initiative to make an overview of these (former) students and their thesis.

Research on educational innovations in Engineering Education
Educational innovations at Higher Engineering Education. That is the subject of the 3TU.CEE's Innovation map project team. Chantal Brans (TU/e), Dury Bayram-Jacobs (TU Delft) and Hans van den Berg (UT) constitute the team. The aim of the project is to stimulate engineering education innovations in our own institutions and to share knowledge about these innovations with the wider university engineering community. For the purpose of inspiration of engineering teachers, we have to date already collected some thirty 3TU cases, available as ā€œInnovation Mapā€ items on the 3TU.CEE website.

TU/e Innovation Call 2016 open for proposals
Educational innovation is high on the TU/e agenda. Lecturers often have good ideas in their daily work but tend to have limited resources to actively pursue them. So to facilitate lecturers to do this, TU/e has organized the Innovation Call for four successive years. To support educational innovation ideas TU/e has also organized the Innovation Call. Chantal Brans, coordinator of the 3TU.CEE in Eindhoven explains: ā€œThe innovation call enables lecturers to submit experiments that can improve education in an innovative way. The plans that get selected can count on financial support and on supervision during the process. Recent years have seen nine projects supported."

UT Education Day 2015 – Student Engagement
At the University of Twente, the Education Day 2015 will take place on Tuesday November 3rd (in the afternoon). The complete programme will be in English. We want to offer a varied programme: inspirational and practical how-to workshops, a key-note and a think tank. Whether you like practical examples you can immediately work with, or you want to have food for thought: weā€™re aiming to offer it all. Central theme of the Education Day will be the question how to motivate and engage students in there learning process.Ā Save the date (3 Nov) and follow the program on the UT websiteĀ

Adaptive Digital Testing @TUD
Digital Assessment offers new opportunities in adapting to the learning process of students. Adaptive Questioning is one of the most new and innovative ways to realise summative assessment, including amongst others feedback mechanisms to identify where the students actually go wrong in their though process when making a test question.
