Teaching in Practice (TIP) – New Special Interest Group
Please join us for the first meeting of the new Teaching in Practice (TIP) SIG.
The TIP SIG was established to provide an opportunity for teaching focused faculty to share experience and best practices, and to stay connected throughout the year. In this kick-off meeting Andrew Roncin and Nancy Nelson (TIP SIG co-chairs) will share a few teaching tips (i.e., TIP Tricks) and facilitate a discussion about what tips you might have to share with your colleagues.
Andrew and Nancy will also want to hear your thoughts on how the TIP SIG can help you engage with the national engineering education teaching community both in regular TIP SIG meetings and at events such as the CEEA-ACEG annual conference.
Andrew Roncin, Ph.D., P.Eng., is a Polytechnic instructor with over 20 years teaching experience. A father of two, he enjoys working with youth, creating learner centered courses, and developing interactive experiences.
Nancy Nelson, M.Sc. (T), Ph.D. Candidate, FEC, P.Eng., is a Senior Teaching & Learning Consultant supporting engineering & technology programs. A long-time engineering educator, she is a 3M National Teaching Fellow (2020) and has been formally recognized for her leadership and innovative teaching practices by Engineers Canada and CICan.
If you have any questions, thoughts or comments that you would like to pass on, please feel free to contact Andrew Roncin (email@example.com) or Nancy Nelson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please join the SELM SIG for it’s December workshop, featuring Dr. Marnie Jamieson, P.Eng., Teaching Professor and William and Elizabeth Magee Chair in Chemical Engineering Design, University of Alberta, and Dr. John Donald, P.Eng., Associate Professor, School of Engineering, University of Guelph.
This workshop describes the application of a Leadership Management Development Model (LMDM) to assess the intentional development of leadership and management competences in the first year engineering design curriculum at the University of Alberta and the University of Guelph. Using the LMDM, developed by the authors, first-year course activities were captured and mapped to leadership and management frameworks, and categorized according to the CEAB Graduate Attributes. The two first-year engineering design course syllabi were compared and analysed on many aspects (e.g., self-leadership, societal impacts, relationship management) and supported by a series of comparative charts and tables based on the LMDM.
The authors will present the preliminary results, which indicate the model is effective at capturing and comparing engineering leadership and management functional coverage in the engineering curriculum. This information provides relevant insights, both within and between programs, that can act as an evidenced-based frame for improving the courses with respect to leadership and management development content.
Ultimately the authors hope the framework can help engineering programs develop, plan, and assess undergraduate professional and contextual skill development in learning activities and the curriculum. We hope to support the development of non-technical engineering skills at the same level and rigour as technical skills.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Marnie Jamieson (email@example.com) or John Donald (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
