Engineering Schools' High Impact Pedagogies Project

Advance HE is looking to work with 12 Engineering schools who are committed to collaborating to address shared challenges.

The Engineering Schools’ High Impact Pedagogies Project is a collaboration between Advance HE and UK-based Engineering Schools. The Engineering professions, higher education and students are all looking to the future needs of Industry 4.0, at the same time as trying to understand and respond to present challenges of diversity in Engineering professions and student engagement in the critical first year of study. The challenge is significant, but Engineering Schools are committed and ready to collaborate and work together to transform their programmes and pedagogy.

Advance HE is looking to work with 12 Engineering schools who are committed to collaborating to address the challenges by identifying and implementing high impact pedagogies to support improved teaching and learning experiences for their students.

Who is it for?

This programme is suitable for Engineering Faculties, Schools, and/or Departments: whether you want to transform your whole Engineering Curriculum, or one ‘big issue’, this project will provide your Engineering Course Team with practical, evidence-based solutions that can be implemented into a new or existing curriculum, including the strategies to make these changes happen.

How it works

Stage 1 - Engineering faculty visit

Hosted by UCL Centre for Engineering Education, CATE Award winners for their Integrated Engineering Programme (IEP), this fact finding and networking event will provide your Programme Leader with the opportunity to:

+ Gain first-hand view of ‘The Scenarios’, the core problem-based element of the IEP curriculum developed at UCL;
+ Examine evidence based approaches to enhancing the Engineering Curriculum; and,
+ Explore the practical challenges of changing provision and how to overcome them.

Stage 2 - Individual consultation

An Advance HE consultant will work with your programme leader to:

Consider issues and challenges more fully in their individual context; and, Develop a bespoke one-day workshop to be delivered at your institution.

Stage 3 - Bespoke workshop at your institution

An Advance HE consultant will work with your programme team and/or students to identify how lessons learnt can be put into practice in your institution.

Stage 4 - Project report

Each team will receive an individual report outlining key findings, success stories and broader recommendations - both for the Engineering sector and bespoke for the individual institution.
