12:00pm - 1:30pmWS130: Effective Gamification Workshop
Location: Room B Humanities Faculty
Session Chair: Prof. Paloma Diaz, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain
Session Chair: Dr. Mohammad Hajarian, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain
Session 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 feedback about their designs. Moreover, for better understanding and future use, the presented guideline, which describes the building blocks of effective gamification in a stepby- step manner, will be given to the participants along with the required tools.

5:30pm - 7:00pmWS04: Preparing future engineers for the convergence of AI and simulation (Altair)
Location: Room B Humanities Faculty
Session Chair: Dr. Armin Veitl, Altair Engineering Inc., Germany
Session Chair: Livio Mariano, Altair, Italy
Session 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 and performance demonstrates the power of AI based control design.

7:30pm - 9:00pmWS1255: Cómo Enseñar Pensamiento Crítico
Location: Room B Humanities Faculty
Session Chair: Prof. Uriel Ruben Cukierman, UTN, Argentine Republic
Session Chair: Dr. Eduardo Vendrell Vidal, Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain
Session 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.
