What happened at the ETALEE 2018 conference?
In this third ETALEE we continued our journey exploring new perspectives on Engineering Education with focus on student centered and active learning.
As an important part of the Conference, we had a Workshop facilitated by Olin College of Engineering
Olin College of Engineering has a history of continually exploring new ways of educating engineers for the future and how to implement active and hands-on teaching and learning methods.
We hope, that you got inspiration from colleagues from an innovative engineering institution which recently was pointed out as world leaders in the field of Engineering Education by a study at MIT, Boston
From Olin home-page:
“LEARNING THROUGH HANDS-ON PROJECTS
A fundamental part of Olin’s philosophy is that learning is taken out of the realm of academic theory only and put in the context of real-world applications. Students tackle actual engineering challenges in a manner very similar to the global teams assembled by today’s leading companies. This hands-on approach enables them to learn the reality of what it’s like to work within financial or other resource constraints, and how innovative thinking is required to solve real-world problems.”
