Event description
What has lockdown taught us about teaching engineering? A live webcast with a keynote from Sir Michael Barber, Chair, Office for Students

About this Event

What have we learned about learning under lockdown? How can we use the experience of trying to deliver high-quality engineering degree programmes to strengthen our teaching in future?

Featuring a keynote by Sir Michael Barber, Chair of the Office for Students, this live webcast will explore the findings published by the EPC in August 2020 entitled Emerging Stronger: Lasting Impact from Crisis Innovation, edited by Prof Bev Gibbs and Dr Gary C Wood. We will explore assessment; collaboration and professional skills; remote laboratory work and practical skill development; employability; and student partnership in learning design.

We are especially delighted that Sir Michael has agreed to join us to present a keynote. He will be stepping down shortly from his role as Chair of the English HE regulator, the Office for Students, and will be delivering a review of digital learning to the Government. The lessons of Emerging Stronger have already been fed into his research and this will be an exclusive opportunity to hear his insights before they are published more widely.

This webcast will be useful for all academics and teachers in engineering higher education and related disciplines at all levels from early careers staff to those with managerial or strategic responsibilities at faculty level. It will also interest employers, students, professional bodies and anyone with an interest in enhancing the learning experiences of tomorrow's engineers.

This event will be free and is open exclusively to academic staff working in member institutions of the Engineering Professors’ Council, to members of the IET and to selected guests. Registration is essential so that we can send you joining instructions.
