Future Perspectives of Engineering Education and the Impact of the Pandemic – Symposium 2

Co-Chairs, Jesse Zhu and Clayton Byers
(12:00-3:00 pm, July 26, 2021)

The Canadian Academy of Engineering, in partnership with Western University, is organizing a “Global Conference on Engineering Education – Challenges and Opportunities”. This conference consists of a series of symposia, held online, over a six month period, organized with different parties. The first symposium, “Future Perspectives of Engineering Education and the Impact of the Pandemic”, was held during the AGM of the Canadian Academy of Engineering on June 15 and this is the second symposium.

This Symposium at the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) on July 26 will focus on the future of our engineering classrooms with a perspective from the lessons we’ve learned throughout the pandemic. This session builds on last year’s ASEE webinar series on “Emerging Insights: Navigating Remote Instruction” and seeks to build off the experiences of a number of those panelists. This three-hour session within the 2021 ASEE Annual Meeting will focus on a few major themes to discuss how we can move forward in our classrooms. Experts have been invited to present in these themes, which will be followed by a Q&A panel discussion.
