Excitement is building as we gear up for the third Practical Engineering Education Conference (PEE24), scheduled to take place on July 2nd and 3rd at The University of Sheffield’s Diamond Building. Organised by Multidisciplinary Engineering Education (MEE), this conference promises to be an enlightening experience for educators keen on advancing practical teaching within engineering curriculums.

To celebrate the launch of the Sustainability Toolkit on the 18th March 2024, we will be participating in a series of events to showcase this much-needed resource for integrating sustainability throughout engineering education.

In the first of two launch events for the Sustainability Toolkit*, we will be presenting at the ‘Engineers 2030: Rethinking engineering and technology skills for the 21st century’ event, co-created by the Royal Academy of Engineering and Engineers Without Borders UK, part of the Academy’s wider Engineers 2030 project.

 

Please note that this event is now only available online. If you wish to join the event on Zoom please click here to register for online attendance.

ALT South #TechThursdays – Directed study, ChatGPT led independent study and Exam revision

Join the ALT South #TechThurdays event with Dr. Manish Malik and Dr. Jebraeel Gholinezhad from the University of Portsmouth to learn about an inclusive innovation, Examopedia – the collaborative exam revision service that has helped academics improve teaching and support ALL students since 2007. With closed book exams returning back after the pandemic, students are in need of extra practice and support to succeed. Examopedia provides the perfect solution, offering an innovative approach to exam preparation that has already been successfully used in one engineering school before the pandemic. It can also support staff and students where open book exams are continuing to be used. By tapping into the cultural and social capital through the use of ChatGPT, Examopedia promotes independent study, improving students’ confidence and overall academic performance for ALL students regardless of their academic background.
