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.
7:30pm - 9:00pmWS1257: Laboratorios Remotos de LabsLand para Electrónica y Diseño Digital
Location: Room C (Philosophy) Humanities Faculty
Session Chair: Dr. Luis Rodríguez-Gil, LabsLand, Spain
Session Chair: Jose Luis Moya, LabsLand, Spain
Session Chair: Dr. Javier García-Zubía, University of Deusto, Spain
Session Chair: Dr. Blanca Quintana, UNED, Spain
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.
