Final Paper Submissions extended to May 8th

Please submit your paper as a file upload via Easychair, using the template provided in the our recent e-mail.

The 2017 Canadian Engineering Education Association’s Annual Conference will be held at the University of Toronto, in Toronto, Ontario, from June 4th-7th, 2017, with the theme of Innovation and Diversity in Engineering Education. Innovation in Engineering Education can take on multiple forms, including multidisciplinary perspectives, new technologies, and new ways to form, deliver, and assess experiences to help meet desired learning outcomes. We pair innovation with diversity as Engineering Education seeks new techniques to engage and educate an increasingly diverse population of engineering students, taking into account differences in gender, ethnicity, language, educational experiences, sexual orientation, and learning styles.

Call for Papers

Extended deadline is January 20, 2017

We invite papers written in English or French on all areas of engineering education. Attendees will have an opportunity to showcase, learn about, and discuss engineering education through a variety of session types. Participants will be asked to identify their proposal with a stream and preferred presentation modes.

The two streams will be:

  1. Research (reports on investigations into teaching, learning, assessment, and accreditation in engineering education)
  2. Practice (accounts of teaching, learning, assessment, and accreditation techniques in action)

Session Formats

Sessions will be 80-90 minutes in length
Technical Sessions

Technical Sessions

4 related talks (12m max. w/ 6m Q&A) with a focus on practical subjects that relate pedagogy to application in a learning environment.

Lightning Talk Sessions

Lightning Talk Sessions

6 brief presentations, with a focus on either an engineering education challenge OR methods OR results, and is suited to studies in progress or seeking feedback on educational practices, with an emphasis on feedback/discussion (6m max. w/ 6 m Q&A)
Poster Sessions

Poster Sessions

5 posters per room, in structured, themed sessions, designed to facilitate dialogue between poster presenters and audience members (10m unstructured time to explore room, 5x10m individual poster conversations)

Presenters will be sorted into technical, lightning talk, and poster session formats based on ranked preference, availability, and session themes.

Authors are invited to submit a one-page extended abstract (approx. 500 words) via EasyChair  by January 20th, 2017 (abstract submission has closed), alongside a declaration of (A) appropriate stream and (B) ranking of preferred presentation modes. Successful authors will then be invited to submit full papers of 2-8 pages.

Other Opportunities

There are three other special opportunities

1) Workshops

Proposals for active workshops, addressing relevant practices, issues or technologies related to classroom practice or Engineering Education Research, are also invited. While the majority of workshops will take place on Sunday, June 4th, 2017, some may be spread throughout the conference. Please consider proposing a workshop, particularly if you have experience/expertise in the following:

  • Engineering Education Methods
  • Engineering Education Research (EER) Methods
  • Engineering Design and Communication
  • Engineering Leadership/Innovation Education
  • Managing CEAB Graduate Attributes
  • Supporting Diversity in Engineering/STEM

To propose a workshop, please complete this online form by January 20th, 2017. The window to submit a proposal has now closed.

2) Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education

A special issue of the Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education (CJMTE) is planned in partnership with Canadian Society for Studies in Education/Science Education Research Group, with a theme of “Innovation and Diversity in Engineering Education.” Papers from the research stream, with particularly strong relevance to the conference theme, a strong theoretical foundation, and a rigorous research approach will be considered. Authors interested in submitting a manuscript should contact CEEA 2017 organizers for more information by January 20, 2017 (deadline has passed).

3) Special Symposia

This year’s conference will include two special symposia, consisting of one or more sessions dedicated to specific topics relevant to the conference theme.

  1. Innovation and Engineering Leadership
  2. Supporting Diverse Participation in STEM

Please contact the symposium organizer prior to the abstract submission deadline (January 20, 2017 – abstract submission has closed) if you have a presentation or workshop that could be included in one of these symposia.
