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 your institution could benefit
Through participating in the collaborative project your institution can:
- Develop a clear picture of the current challenges facing the Engineering sector and your institution;
- Gain first-hand knowledge of how others have implemented and embedded change in their curriculum;
- Receive bespoke, practical support and advice to harness and channel the full collective expertise of your staff; and,
- Develop new and innovative approaches to developing your Engineering curriculum.
How it works
Stage 1 - Engineering faculty visit
+ 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
Consider issues and challenges more fully in their individual context; and, Develop a bespoke one-day workshop to be delivered at your institution.
