Workshop Session A.3 – Engineering Leadership and Innovation: Sharing Best Practices on Engineering Leadership: a NICKEL (National Initiative on Capacity Building and Knowledge Creation) Workshop
Mike Klassen and John Donald | Engineering leadership is a growing area of programming and research in engineering education in Canada. In this workshop, we want to develop relationships among engineering educators interested in introducing leadership to their students. Participants will gain understanding of the broader field of engineering leadership education and the wide range of programs, courses and activities being developed by other universities, place their own work within clusters of more specific practices (e.g. integrating teamwork into a design course; leading a stand-alone engineering leadership course; supporting student leaders to reflect on their learning), find out who to go to for more in-depth exchange and build relationships with other practitioners within this field in Canada, as a means to further learning exchange and collaboration.
