UCL: Designing Inclusive Engineering Education – exploring what it means and how you can do it!
Addressing diversity and inclusion within an engineering degree can at times seem irrelevant or futile. The Centre for Engineering Education with Katalytik and the Royal Academy of Engineering will explore inclusion in the engineering education context. This free, two day symposium will provide a rich discussion with peers and experts on HE leadership, course and assessment design and team working around inclusion.
Please register for this free event through the Eventbrite link.
Day 1: Monday, 9th July, 10:30-16:00 – Royal Academy of Engineering, 3 Carlton House Terrace, St. James’s, London SW1Y 5DG
Day 1 offers a platform for an open and frank discussion about how engineering faculties are setting themselves up to create graduates that appreciate and value that they will not only be working alongside diverse professionals but that they will be designing products and services across humanity.
Breakouts focus on gaps and creating new resources and communities of practice.
Report Launch and Reception: Monday, 9th July 2018, 17:00-20:00 – Royal Academy of Engineering, 3 Carlton House Terrace, St. James’s, London SW1Y 5DG
Day 2: Tuesday, 10th July, 09:00-15:45 – UCL, 1-19 Torrington Place, London WC1E 7HB
The focus for Day 2 is on sharing knowledge and practice from engineering disciplines around the four pillars. Facilitators will draw good practice together and extend thinking to collect case studies to share and Pillar 1 and 2 will run in parallel in the first session and Pillar 3 and 4 in the second session.
Breakout workshops will focus on the 4 pillars for knowledge sharing ideas and good practice.
