WS119: How to Teach Critical Thinking
Location: Room A Humanities Faculty
Chair: Prof. Uriel Ruben Cukierman, UTN, Argentine Republic
Chair: Dr. Eduardo Vendrell Vidal, Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain
Chair: Dr. África López-Rey, UNED, 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
Location: Room B Humanities Faculty
Chair: Prof. Paloma Diaz, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain
Chair: Dr. Mohammad Hajarian, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain
Chair: Prof. Clara Perez, UNED, 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
Location: Room D (3.31) Humanities Faculty
Chair: Dr. Stephanie Cutler, Penn State, United States of America
Chair: Dr. Sarah Zappe, Penn State, United States of America
Chair: Prof. Elio San Cristóbal, UNED, Spain
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.

WS01: Supporting Mental Wellbeing in Engineering Education Environments
Location: Room C (Philosophy) Humanities Faculty
Chair: Dr. Kim Johnston, University of Calgary, Canada
Chair: Robyn Paul, University of Calgary, Canada
Chair: Prof. Rosario Gil Ortego, UNED, Spain
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)
Location: Room B Humanities Faculty
Chair: Dr. Armin Veitl, Altair Engineering Inc., Germany
Chair: Livio Mariano, Altair, Italy
Chair: Prof. Elio San Cristóbal, UNED, Spain
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
Location: Room B Humanities Faculty
Chair: Prof. Uriel Ruben Cukierman, UTN, Argentine Republic
Chair: Dr. Eduardo Vendrell Vidal, Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain
Chair: Dr. África López-Rey, UNED, 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.
