SEFI @ work: Celebrating Ada Lovelace Day – an international discussion on young women in engineering and technology education
Tuesday, 12 October 2021, 15:00 – 16:30 GMT (UK)/ 16:00 – 17:30 CEST (EU)…
15 – 17 June 2020 in Kristiansand, Norway
The SEFI (European Society for Engineering Education) Mathematics Working Group (MWG) was established in 1982. The aims of the Working Group include providing a forum for the exchange of views and ideas amongst those interested in engineering mathematics and promoting a fuller understanding of the role of mathematics in the engineering curriculum, and its relevance to industrial needs. The Working Group issued the third edition of its curriculum document (“A Framework for Mathematics Curricula in Engineering Education”) in September 2013. This edition is based on mathematical competencies in didactical research with emphasis on practice roles of researchers and practitioners and their cooperation. How to assess competencies and the major aim of teaching mathematics as a tool to future engineers will also be dis-cussed topics.
In summer 2020, the 20th SEFI MWG seminar will be organised by the University of Agder – Kristiansand, Norway. The main topics of the seminar will be the following ones:
Mathematical competencies in didactical research
How to assess competencies
The goal of teaching
Other contributions related to the mathematical education of engineers are also welcome.
Keynote speakers will include:
Inspirational Keynote: “Visualizing Mathematical Spaces”
