CALL FOR PAPERS FOR SPECIAL SESSION “ ALEPFECW - Active Learning Environments: Preparing Future Engineers for the 21st Century Workplace” (Technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Education Society, with proceedings to be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore® Conference theme: “"Engineering Education for the Future in a Multicultural and Smart World".)
Organization: EDUCON 2020: IEEE Global Engineering Education Conference
Event: Technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Education Society, with proceedings to be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore® Conference theme: “"Engineering Education for the Future in a Multicultural and Smart World".
Today’s Higher Education Institutions aim at providing their students with the necessary skills to make them employable and successful in their field. Therefore, more and more educators, researchers and practitioners are employing resources to equip students with 21st century skills such as critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration and information literacy. These skills can be acquired through Active Learning.
Active Learning can be accomplished through teaching strategies that motivate students to actively become involved in their learning process either as individuals or in collaboration with others. These teaching strategies focus on student-centered approaches such as case-based, problem-based, project-based and discovery-based learning that foster communication, collaboration and sharing.
This special session will address novel pedagogical approaches, methods and applications useful to those who wish to promote 21st century skills to meet the needs of today’s workplace.
The session aims to attract research papers and case studies on novel methods and applications related to 21st century active learning pedagogies. We invite researchers, developers and practitioners from various fields, including but not limited to engineering, technology, computer science, communication, business, linguistics, ethnography, sociology and psychology, working on the following areas:
· Pedagogical Frameworks
· Student Engagement
· Educational Online Communities
· Communities of Inquiry
· Experiential Learning Environments
· Case-based Learning
· Inquiry-based Learning
· Project-based Learning
· Discovery-based Learning
· Interdisciplinary Learning
· Multidisciplinary Learning
· Game Based Learning
· Open and Distance Learning
The deadline for submission of complete papers for Special Sessions, Work In Progress and Student Poster is December 15th 2019.
