Develop Engineering Research Skills: Educator Spotlights on Elsevier Solutions

Universities are ideal hubs for students to build knowledge synthesis and create skillsets. But, many undergraduate engineering students don’t take full advantage of the powerful information and resources that are available to them through institutional subscriptions.

However, there are pedagogical strategies faculty can adopt to grow learners’ capabilities through knowledge synthesis, including leveraging tools like Knovel, Engineering Village, and Elsevier’s game-based learning experience called Engineering Academic Challenge.

This webinar will address:

• Examples of learning experiences where students have been asked to synthesize & apply information in new contexts and create new knowledge
• The contexts in which students to develop research skills
• Ways to leverage Knovel and Engineering Village to facilitate the learning journey and produce tangible research & education outcomes

This webinar series is presented by Elsevier as part of our ongoing support of advancements in engineering education. We invite all attendees to participate in the Engineering Academic Challenge, an immersive problem-set based competition for engineering students all over the world. https://eac.elsevier.com/

  • Engineering Learning & Research in an Era of Symbiotic Technology Recorded: Aug 15 2018 35 mins
    Daniel Christe
    As technological change mediates virtually every realm of human life, the role of the engineer is expanding significantly and it is important that engineering educators are helping students prepare the new roles.

    While the foundation of a strong engineering education remains unchanged, the research tools that engineering graduates will employ throughout their careers are rapidly becoming more powerful and networked. As the engineering profession changes, however, advances in engineering education have been slow to come, despite prominent calls for change from bodies such as The National Academy of Engineering, ABET, and the National Science Foundation in the US.

    This webinar will address:

    * Innovative experiments happening in engineering education today and how you can incorporate new methods in your curriculum
    * Macrotrends impacting engineering education, practice, and the tools engineers use to discover insights from high technical fidelity information
    * Top skills that prospective employers are expecting from the engineering graduates of 2020
    * Ways to effectively incorporate databases such as Knovel and Engineering Village into a innovative engineering curriculum.
