Research and Ideas for Practice

Centre for Engineering Education, UCL, London

Join us for this informative and lively symposium on inclusion in engineering education. Our aim is to bring together key researchers and practitioners who are pushing forward the inclusion agenda, from inclusion in engineering design and innovation, course structure and delivery as well as building an inclusive learning environment ie culture. The forum will hear how and why gender is and should be included in engineering courses. Have you thought for example about how gender affects car design or wearable technology? How would you teach this?

The programme includes keynote speakers from Germany and Australia, a student discussion forum and a Pecha Kucha (20 images shown for 20 seconds) session as well as discussion groups. Bring along your own ideas, research and practice. Or simply come to learn and collect examples of good practice.

The event is supported by The Royal Academy of Engineering and we shall be producing a summary report.

There is a small charge of £150 that includes attendance and symposium refreshments with an additional charge for the dinner. Register online https://www.ucl.ac.uk/centre-for-engineering-education/inclusivity_symposium.

Participation from academics in higher and further education as well as industry is welcomed.
