Online Workshop on Engineering Education Research (EER) Presented by the University of Glasgow and UK and Ireland Education Society Chapter

Education Society

The Workshop on Engineering Education Research aims to share the expertise of leading academics in engineering pedagogy. This workshop will be part of the UK China Emerging Technologies (UCET) Conference. The workshop will be delivered virtually and is organised by the University of Glasgow, UK. The workshop will cover topics pertaining the effectiveness of engineering education, including:

  • Community engineering education.
  • The implementation of active learning techniques.
  • The application of ICT tools to facilitate remote learning.

Confirmed Speakers:

Prof. Euan Lindsay, CSU Engineering Foundation Professor of Engineering, Charles Sturt University, Australia.Talk Title (TBC): High quality remote laboratories.

Talk Time: 10:30.

Brief Bio: Euan Lindsay brings immense experience and passion for engineering to the establishment of CSU’s Bachelor of Technology / Master of Engineering (Civil Systems). Euan’s background is in mechatronic engineering, and he completed a PhD in Engineering Education, exploring how students learned while controlling equipment remotely via the internet. During his academic career, Euan has held senior roles as Program Leader and Senior Lecturer / Associate Professor within the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Curtin University, and Dean of the School of Engineering and Technology at Central Queensland University, before joining CSU as the Foundation Professor of Engineering. He has also been a visiting scholar at Virginia Tech. A member of a number of professional associations, Euan has also co-authored two book chapters and written or co-authored numerous journal articles.

Prof. Caroline Baillie, Professor of Praxis in Engineering and Social Justice, Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering, University of San Diego.Talk Title: Community engineering education: preparing students for an unknown future.

Talk Time: 16:20.

Brief Bio: Caroline Baillie is Professor of Praxis in Engineering and Social justice at the University of San Diego, and co-founding director of the not-for-profit ‘Waste for Life’ (wasteforlife.org) which supports vulnerable communities in the development of upcycled waste-based businesses. Baillie’s research considers socio-technical processes and systems, which enhance social and environmental justice, and educational systems that promote these. She brings lessons learnt from these studies and practices into the classroom of all ages, to facilitate the transformation to a more equitable and just future. Professor Baillie has published 27 scholarly books, an edited series of books on ‘Engineers, Technology and Society’ and over 200 book chapters, peer reviewed journal and conference papers.
