As tenets of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility to STEM Education (IDEA) continue to be a foundation for the progression of engineering education worldwide, the World Engineering Education Forum (WEEF) developed this session to identify key concepts, evidence-based approaches, and a surveying overview of IDEA within the realm of STEM education and industry opportunities. Join Dr. Renetta Tull, Vice Chancellor of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion from the University of California Davis and Adj. Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Dora Smith, Senior Director, Global Academic Program from Siemens and VP of D&I for IFEES, as they address sustainable strategies and best practices to ultimately make programs more inclusive, diverse, equitable, and accessible to all.
This session, supported by the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES) and the Global Engineering Deans Council (GEDC), will explore IDEA in the context of academia, industry, and student perspectives. With this diverse unveiling of global experiences, participants will learn how engineering can serve as a platform for social change.
5:30pm - 7:00pmWS01: Supporting Mental Wellbeing in Engineering Education Environments
Location: Room C (Philosophy) Humanities Faculty
Session Chair: Dr. Kim Johnston, University of Calgary, Canada
Session Chair: Robyn Paul, University of Calgary, Canada
Session 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.
Dr. Kim Johnston is the Associate Dean (Teaching and Learning; Student Professional Development) for the Schulich School of Engineering (SSE) and a tenured Senior Instructor in the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering. She joined the leadership team in 2018. Dr. Johnston became an academic after completing her PhD in Petroleum Engineering at the University of Calgary in 2017 where she focused her research on the phase behavior of bitumen solvent systems. Dr. Johnston worked in industry after completing her BSc in Chemical Engineering at the University of Calgary in 2005. She advanced her career with Devon Canada, moving from field engineer to production engineer to reservoir simulation engineer between 2005 and 2011. Today, Dr. Johnston is focused on engineering education innovation and advancing mental wellbeing supports during the engineering education process.

La pandemia actual y las tendencias cambiantes en la educación están aumentando la necesidad de flexibilidad y de una mayor experiencia práctica en el aula en un modo de enseñanza en línea. Esto es especialmente importante cuando se trata del ámbito de la ingeniería, para la que las prácticas son fundamentales. LabsLand ayuda a los educadores haciendo que esta transición sea lo más suave posible. El objetivo de esta sesión es familiarizar a los educadores de ingeniería con las tecnologías de laboratorio remoto y con los laboratorios remotos más populares. Durante el taller, presentaremos estas tecnologías. A continuación, describiremos brevemente dos de los laboratorios remotos más populares utilizados en universidades de todo el mundo: Para dispositivos FPGA y para electrónica general. A continuación, los participantes tendrán la oportunidad de experimentar ellos mismos con esos laboratorios mediante sesiones específicas de práctica guiada. Se hará hincapié en la aplicación práctica de esos laboratorios a los cursos de ingeniería. Los participantes también dispondrán de un acceso gratuito y limitado en el tiempo a los laboratorios para que puedan seguir probando y practicando con ellos después del taller.

Students play an important role in the adoption of new technology. Software, such as MATLAB and Simulink, helps students apply concepts to industrial and societal real world problems. MathWorks supports you and your students through multiple programs. In this panel discussion, we will explain the programs we offer, how they can help you, and how they help students develop into engineers. We will provide an overview of the programs and have an expert panel answer questions and share their experiences building and working with our programs.
