Workshop 1: Accreditation and Its Implications
Accreditation is becoming a necessity for all higher education programs to not only assure quality of the curriculum content and its delivery but also serve as a platform, which allows movement of professional across regional and international boundaries. Most of the countries around the globe either have developed their own accreditation system (ABET, OAAA, CEAB, etc.) or combined as regional accreditation system (ENAEE, etc.) to ensure outcome compliance with minimum set of standards, develop practical and soft skills in graduates, and allow workforce mobility. This workshop briefly explains accreditation, its implications, preparation for accreditation, and developing a continuous improvement system for higher education programs.
Workshop 2: Teaching STEM Skills via Robotics
Robotics is a great platform for enhancing STEM skills essential for developing creative thinkers and problem solvers; skills that are needed for future jobs and for solving big world problems. This is a professional development workshop for teachers that uses Robotic kits to explore the world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Through hands-on activities, learn how to enhance student computational thinking, design thinking, and problem-solving skills.
Workshop 3: Active Learning Strategies
The objective of this workshop is to provide participants with a framework and a set of principles and strategies for teaching and learning, to enable participants adopt these principles and strategies to develop effective techniques to foster and enhance students learning, and ultimately to apply these principles and strategies during practical sessions. The workshop will show examples for the development or review of course learning objectives of a course, identification of learning styles, and application of active learning methods in a course.
