12:00pm - 1:30pmWS119: How to Teach Critical Thinking
Location: Room A 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
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.

Location: Room A Humanities Faculty
Session Chair: Dr. Alaa Ashmawy, IFEES, Egypt
Session Chair: Prof. Michael Auer, IAOE, Austria
Session 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.

12:00pm - 1:30pmWS1254: Remote Laboratories for Electronics and Digital Design by LabsLand
Location: Room A 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: Prof. Clara Perez, UNED, Spain
The current pandemic and changing trends in education are increasing the need for flexibility and for more practical classroom experience in an online mode of teaching. This is especially important when it comes to engineering education, for which practices are critical. LabsLand helps educators by making this transition as smooth as possible. The purpose of this session is to familiarize engineering educators with remote laboratory technologies and with popular remote laboratories. During the workshop, we will introduce those technologies. Then we will briefly describe two of the most popular remote laboratories used in universities around the world: For FPGA devices and for general electronics. Participants will then have the chance to experiment with those laboratories themselves through specific guided practice sessions. Focus will be put into the practical application of those laboratories to engineering courses. Participants will also be provided with a no-charge time-limited access to the labs so that they may continue trying and practicing with them after the workshop.
