CEEA 2015: Experiential Engineering Education (May 2015, Hamilton Canada)

Dates: 31 May – 3 June 2015
Location: McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Website: http://www.ceea2015-mcmaster.ca
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 26 January 2015

The Canadian Engineering Education Association’s Annual Conference (CEEA2015-McMaster) will be held at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario from May 31 to June 3, 2015. All areas of engineering education research and practice are invited, but we would like to theme the broader discussion around what experiential education means for our students. This conference offers a unique venue for academics and practitioners to discuss recent trends in engineering education and education research. The conference includes workshops, plenary sessions, and technical sessions.

Papers may be submitted on evidence-based, research-based, and practice-based topics. To help guide the classification we are adopting Boyer’s framework whereby the scholarship of teaching may be defined by the union of:

1. Scholarship of discovery
2. Scholarship of application
3. Scholarship of integration

The steering committee would like to invite topics including, but not limited to:
Experiential Education
Science, Technology, and Mathematics Education
Assessment of Student Learning
Learning and Research using Social Media
Accreditation and Quality Assurance
Emerging Education Technologies
Education Research Methods
Co-curricular Engagement
Distance Education
Integrating Research and Education
Simulation-based Learning
Multidisciplinary Learning
Large classrooms, first-year, and new educators

Workshop and panel proposals on the following topics are welcome:

1. Experiential Education for Engineers
2. Education Research Methods
3. Education Research Instrument Design
4. I’m new, where do I begin? (New Member Mentoring)
5. Technology in the classroom

Please forward this call to your colleagues and beyond. We welcome submission from authors in all education research fields.
