Addressing global challenges requires complex problem-solving, systems thinking, and interdisciplinary collaboration.
How can we transform engineering education so that students develop these important skills?
What learnings can be shared by higher education institutions that have embarked on educational transformation processes?
What do other stakeholders in higher education, industry, and society, have to say about these efforts?
These and other questions will be discussed in a highly-interactive, in-person format at the 9th International Research Symposium on Problem-Based Learning under the theme Transforming Engineering Education.
The conference program will include workshops, guided discussions, unconference sessions, a showcase for educational innovations, and one-on-one networking pods. Topics of discussion will include collaboration with industry, development of professional competencies, education for sustainability, faculty professional development, online learning, and problem-based learning, among others.
