Actionable Insights from Engineering Educators During Emergency Remote Teaching

Karin Wolff1, Johnson Carroll2

1Stellenbosch University, South Africa; 2University of Johannesburg, South Africa


This workshop will consist of an interactive presentation of an ongoing research effort into the effect of the transition to emergency remote (online) teaching (ERT) during the pandemic. The research, conducted by the South African Society for Engineering Education and Stellenbosch University, seeks insights into the conditions, challenges and successes of the transition from engineering (and related) educators and postgraduate students at different institutions in different contexts.

Workshop participants will be invited to compare their own perceptions of online teaching in particular learning scenarios into their own context in an interactive format. The facilitators will then guide the participants through the framework and methodology used to productively interpret the qualitative data collected. The workshop will culminate with a comprehensive discussion on translating the analysed data into areas for potential action.

Target Audience: All engineering education related stakeholders (management, deans, lecturers, students, learning support staff)

Number of participants: Unlimited
