Sustainability in Engineering Leadership and Management (SELM) SIG Workshop.

Please join the SELM SIG for its November workshop, featuring Dr. Nadine Ibrahim Turkstra Chair in Urban Engineering and a Lecturer in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Waterloo.

Abstract: Engineering students are introduced to concepts of sustainability at some point in their undergraduate education. The recent transition to online teaching prompted a change in teaching delivery methods and assessments. An example of a second-year undergraduate engineering course on Engineering and Sustainable Development is presented to demonstrate how to leverage the opportunities brought on by online and remote learning.

This talk will:

     discuss the course structure for online/remote learning and present examples of assistance from the Centre for Teaching Excellence;

     highlight the teaching philosophy to enable application and integration of sustainability concepts as it ties in with sustainable cities;

     present a community-building strategy to engage students and encourage interaction outside of the class; and

     share an example of how students co-created content and contributed to sustainability knowledge by producing an e-book for peers and the wider engineering community.
