P01: Diversity in Engineering Education: Support and Technologies
Chair: Dr. Carina Soledad González-González, University of La Laguna, Spain
Our current society expects engineers being socially responsible by deploying solutions that put social benefits and interest ahead other criteria. Diversity is without doubt a key issue to be addressed in this context. There are many examples of engineered products that have been conceived and tailored keeping in mind a stereotyped user who only fits a very specific type of person, chiefly middle aged white men. This situation has led to biased products that are not useful for more than half of their potential users. For this reason, the panel will focus on this topic and show some examples on how to integrate activities that contribute to open up our students perception about their role as engineers in terms of design for diversity and inclusion. Besides, the Covid situation has accelerated the use of e- and blended learning concepts to a great extent. From an ethical perspective of learning, it should be ensured that as far as possible all learners are promoted -or at least not...

WS119: How to Teach Critical Thinking
Chair: Prof. Uriel Ruben Cukierman, UTN, Argentine Republic
Chair: Dr. Eduardo Vendrell Vidal, Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain
There is a common understanding in Higher Education, and particularly in STEAM teaching, about the need of developing the so called “21st Century skills” also referred to as the 4C’s, including Critical Thinking, Creative Thinking, Communication and Collaboration. While the last two skills are probably more familiar for faculties, developing Creative and Critical Thinking skills in our students is much more difficult and hardly achievable without a proper training and guidance. The proposed Workshop will give participants an insight about what does it mean Critical Thinking, which are its components and some technics for teaching and assessing this skill in STEAM courses.
WS130: Effective Gamification Workshop
Chair: Prof. Paloma Diaz, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain
Chair: Dr. Mohammad Hajarian, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain
Recently, gamification showed tremendous success in different fields of science. It can enhance active learning in engineering education and increase user engagement in software applications. In this workshop, participants will learn and practice effective gamification: a novel gamification guideline developed and presented by the presenters of this workshop at the WEEF-GEDC 2021 conference. As a result, in addition to learning gamification for making mobile and web applications more engaging, participants will learn state-of-theart principles of using interactivity, utility, and social networking features to make gamification effective in the long run. This workshop consists of three parts, and it will be held in 90-minute sessions. Principles, several examples, and case studies will be reviewed during this session, and participants will use the given tools to collaboratively design a gamified app based on the learned principles. At the end of the session, they will receive...
WS165: Growing a Mindset Culture for an Inclusive Classroom
Chair: Dr. Stephanie Cutler, Penn State, United States of America
Chair: Dr. Sarah Zappe, Penn State, United States of America
Have you ever thought about you the innate abilities of your students? Does your class structure and messaging tell them they can grow and learn and improve as they complete your course? These questions link to a factor that has been shown to impact student success across underrepresented groups - mindset. Mindset here refers to Dweck’s fixed (innate) and growth (malleable) nature of intelligence and other characteristics. This workshop will present how organizational and classroom culture with respect to messages around mindset can impact the experience of underrepresented students. Specifically, the mindset beliefs of the course instructor with respect to the nature of their students’ ability (fixed or growth) can have substantial and significant impact on closing the achievement gaps for underrepresented students. This workshop will focus on reflecting on faculty instructional practices, messaging, and perspectives to move towards promoting a growth mindset and an inclusive classroom.
WS174: Building Conceptual Models and Engineering Design Thinking in K-12 Students
Chair: Dr. Nancy Ruzycki, University of Florida, United States of America
Chair: Dr. Krista Marie Dulany, University of Florida, United States of America
Chair: Dr. Lorelie Dela Fuente Imperial, University of Florida, United States of America
This 90 minutes workshop will engage participants in understanding how engineering design practices can be brought into core content classes to support conceptual model development in students as part of the model development cycle. Participants will have a chance to map this learning using frameworks developed by the facilitators. The Engaged Quality Instruction Through Professional Development (EQuIPD) is a teacher professional development project funded by the US Department of Education through the Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) program. EQuIPD experts will lead this workshop with the aim of supporting teachers as they develop the capacity and build competency in creating and using conceptual models of the core content that they teach. This workshop will engage participants in understanding how engineering design practices can be brought into core content classes to support conceptual model development in students as part of the model development cycle.

P1205: Academic-Industry Partnership Ecosystems
Chair: Jennifer Bradford, Siemens, United States of America
When industry and academia work together to create a nurturing, entrepreneurial and inclusive ecosystem in which learners are able to apply the knowledge and theory taught in the classroom to the problems and opportunities within their own communities, engineering education becomes not just an individual pursuit, but a means by which we collectively “increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship." Indeed, academic-industry collaboration creates an environment conducive to lifelong learning that benefits not only traditional “college aged” learners, but also workers seeking to re- or up-skill, the industries in which they work, the institution and the greater public good. The future of work is quickly changing due to quickly-evolving technologies, socio-economic dynamics, and changing demographics. Employees of the future now need to "return to learning" multiple times...
P1256: Lifelong Learning in a Changing World: A Vision from the eMadrid Project
Chair: Dr. Sergio Martin, UNED - Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia, Spain
Chair: Dr. Pedro Muñoz-Merino, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain
The effect of a changing world is being analyzed by this panel from the eMadrid network with respect to how the educational system should be not just at the traditional years of Bachelor and Master studies, but also along the whole life. Technologies change our daily life and the future of work, and therefore what needs to be studied and what skills need to be taught. They also impact the teaching process itself liberating itself from space and time. The world is changing continuously, but there are milestones where one can recognize significant changes. These milestones are not single points in time, they are periods of transition. Not recognizing these fundamental shifts or not willing to accept them due to inertia are a bad basis for a bright future. Life and work are not the same in the agricultural era than in the industrial era. And so are the education systems. Apprenticeships were replaced by universities shaped by metaphor of the conveyor belt. The question now is: how...
WS01: Supporting Mental Wellbeing in Engineering Education Environments
Chair: Dr. Kim Johnston, University of Calgary, Canada
Recent surveys of engineering undergraduate students indicate that a majority of students report feelings of being overwhelmed, sad, lonely and hopeless. Despite a majority of students reporting these challenging feelings, very few (less than 5-10%) of students access mental health resources available on campus. This has highlighted the need to develop curricular and co-curricular programs to support student wellbeing and connect students to existing supports. In this workshop, a framework for discussing mental wellbeing in and out of classrooms will be presented. Examples of student support programs implemented in an engineering school will be discussed. Time will be given for participants to work in groups to discuss potential supports that they can bring back to their communities at their own home institutions.
WS04: Preparing future engineers for the convergence of AI and simulation (Altair)
Chair: Dr. Armin Veitl, Altair Engineering Inc., Germany
Chair: Livio Mariano, Altair, Italy
Data science elevates simulation driven design to a new level. A control design process can be drastically shortened by an AI based system identification while the flexibility increases. The Workshop utilizes a ball balancing table to demonstrate this transition away from a traditional physics- based approach. It builds the basis of a project-based learning class that let students explore the possibilities and limitations that arises with data science. The new approach will be introduced in the context of different approaches of modern control design: * The simulation-based approach uses digital twins of various complexities: linear, nonlinear and full 3D based twins - which can be replaces by the real system finally. * The data scienced based approach uses a short set of data to teach an AI based identification of the dynamic system. The results will lead in a control configuration that can be applied on the real system directly. A straight comparison of flexibility, stability...

WS1255: Cómo Enseñar Pensamiento Crítico
Chair: Prof. Uriel Ruben Cukierman, UTN, Argentine Republic
Chair: Dr. Eduardo Vendrell Vidal, Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain
Existe un entendimiento común en la educación superior, y particularmente en la enseñanza STEAM, sobre la necesidad de desarrollar las llamadas "habilidades del siglo XXI", también conocidas como las 4C, que incluyen el pensamiento crítico, el pensamiento creativo, la comunicación y la colaboración. Si bien las dos últimas habilidades probablemente sean más familiares para las facultades, desarrollar habilidades de pensamiento creativo y crítico en nuestros estudiantes es mucho más complicado y difícilmente alcanzable sin una capacitación y orientación adecuadas. El taller propuesto dará a los participantes una idea de lo que significa el Pensamiento Crítico, cuáles son sus componentes y algunas técnicas para enseñar y evaluar esta habilidad en los cursos STEAM.

WS129: Reflecting on your Role Modeling with a Scientific Approach
Chair: Virginia Grande, Uppsala University, Sweden
Chair: Dr. Anne-Kathrin Peters, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden
Chair: Prof. Mats Daniels, Uppsala University, Sweden
Having a role model can be beneficial, e.g. students may have higher self-esteem, motivation and academic achievement. We are all potential role models in different contexts. What is it that we model? If we consider whether there is intention and awareness of our own role modeling, how does it affect our reflection on what others may copy from us? In this workshop, participants from all backgrounds, including educators in any career stage (teachers, course coordinators, teaching assistants,...) are invited to think about their achievements and aspects of themselves that they can model for their students (or equivalent). The discussion then broadens to include all kinds of role modeling that the participants deem needed in the contexts they belong to and who (other than the participant themselves) can model these. The results of these discussions can be used by each participant individually to reflect on their own practice and to support discussions with other stakeholders, such as...
WS183: Developing Student-Centered Responsibility for their Own Learning; A Metacognitive Approach
Chair: Dr. Peter Shull, Penn State University, United States of America
Arguably, student responsibility is one of the biggest factors in student success. Unfortunately, it is one of the success skills that is tacidly assumed students will acquire it on their own. Further, students and faculty rarely have a common understanding of what being responsible means. To further complicate the issue people describe responsibility in terms of specific actions, e.g., turning a paper in on time, attending classes. What they do not do is have a methodology that can be used to determine if an individual is taking responsibility or not. This workshop will provide participants with clarity on what is meant by taking responsibility, specific methods to determine if one is taking responsibility, and clear, simple methodologies to train students in how to take responsibility for their own learning. These methods can be integrated into any class without loss of learning of the class subject matter. (Note, to increase student and faculty buy in, the methods rely on common...
