WS05: Microdegrees
Location: Room A Humanities Faculty
Chair: Dr. Alaa Ashmawy, IFEES, Egypt
Chair: Prof. Michael Auer, IAOE, Austria
Chair: Dr. África López-Rey, UNED, Spain
Engineering education has evolved over a relatively short span of three centuries, from an apprenticeship and self-regulated learning model to a structured college system with predominantly classroom delivery. The current pace of progress in knowledge and new skills driven by the industry are rapidly pressing the need for reform in engineering higher education. New paradigms have emerged in the form of microdegrees and stackable credentials, along with a focus on contextual engineering education, grounded in experiential and project-based learning. In this workshop, IFEES plans for establishing a framework for accrediting stackable credentials and micro-degrees at the global level will be discussed. By the end of this workshop, an 8-month road map for launching a global accreditation system for microdegrees and stackable credentials will be formulated, with input from participants.
WS129: Reflecting on your Role Modeling with a Scientific Approach
Location: Room E (9 - Numancia) Humanities Faculty
Chair: Virginia Grande, Uppsala University, Sweden
Chair: Dr. Anne-Kathrin Peters, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden
Chair: Prof. Mats Daniels, Uppsala University, Sweden
Chair: Dr. Elena Ruiz Larrocha, UNED, Spain
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
Location: Room F (2 - Philology) Humanities Faculty
Chair: Dr. Peter Shull, Penn State University, United States of America
Chair: Prof. Clara Perez, UNED, Spain
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...

Boardman Mathworks Keynote: Dr. Tanya Morton, "Tackling Climate Change with Education, Research, and Industrial Collaboration", Director Worldwide Customer Success Engineering, MathWorks In a recent Times Higher Education Leaders survey, 80% of leaders in higher education said that the pursuit of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) informs how their institution operates. Climate action is amongst the most critical of the SDGs - if we don’t tackle climate change, then many of the other SDGs will become unattainable. In this talk, we’ll look at the 3 elements of the Paris Agreement as a framework for climate action, and highlight examples of how engineers and scientists are contributing to the goals of the agreement. We’ll then take a deeper dive into the engineering megatrend that is...
