Session Description

Free ticketed event
The 4th Industrial Revolution is bringing a significant transformation in the development of education. At least three essential elements of this transformation process have to be tackled, especially in engineering education:
· The impact of globalization on all areas of human life;
· The exponential acceleration of developments in technology and the global markets, and the necessity for flexibility and agility;
· The enormous (and accelerated) growth of engineering.
To face these real-world challenges, higher engineering education must find innovative ways to respond quickly to the new needs. One approach is to improve the qualifications of engineering educators in pedagogy.
The International Society for Engineering Pedagogy (IGIP) has been developing and promoting the ideas of engineering pedagogy as a branch of professional pedagogy for 50 years and offers an international professional development program for engineering and engineering technology educators that leads to the designation of Ing.Paed.IGIP and corresponding professional registration. The program is based on the scientific principles of engineering pedagogy that enable effective teaching engineering.
Traditionally, the IGIP program has been offered in Europe through a network of IGIP-accredited training centers and content providers. Continuing globalization and a lack of national professional faculty development and recognition programs in many other parts of the world, have created increased interest in opportunities to become a formally qualified and registered professional international educator. In response, IGIP and its partners are now active in Latin America and the U.S. Development of a shared modular online curriculum is the vision.
This workshop will cover:
• Historical and current reasons for an IGIP Prototype Curriculum for Engineering Educators
• The new IGIP Prototype Curriculum and its scientific basis
• How to apply for IGIP Certification as International Engineering Educator – Ing.Paed.IGIP
• Roundtable discussion
