2nd international science and engineering education PhD symposium

Monday, 17 May 2021

The second edition of the online 'PhD Research Across ConTinents in Engineering and Science Education' symposium is about to take place on the 8th of June, 9:00h - 11:00h CEST. In each seminar three PhD candidates will discuss their work with other PhD students and other attendees. Apart from PhD’s also postdocs and senior researchers are invited to take part. Learn about new science and engineering education research in progress and exchange ideas with your peers. Register now!

In this second international PhD symposium Almer Gungor (KU Leuven) talks about the impact of disciplinary future self-enriched electromagnetism course on pharmacy majors’ achievement and affect in physics. Sina Enteshari (University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand) discusses his research on making sustainability great again: Identification of sustainability’s threshold concept(s) among multi-discipline engineering students. The third PhD candidate, Marta Gavioli (Delft University of Technology/4TU.CEE) investigates hands-on learning in Structural Mechanics: a framework to define conceptual understanding in Structures.

More details of these contributions and how to register can be found on the LESEC website.

About the international PhD symposium

4TU.CEE together with KU Leuven’s LESEC (Leuven Engineering & Science Education Center) and the Teaching & Learning Lab in Engineering and IT of the University of Melbourne and the 'Engineering and Science Education, Society and Work' research cluster at the University of Western Australia have joined forces to create a series of networking events where PhD students from the three institutes can share and discuss their research. The first edition took place on 9 March 2021.
