Engineering instructors invited to learn about learning benefits of student hackathons

Join the Engineering Integrative Learning Group for a presentation from Andrew Milne, Rania Al-Hammoud, Derek Wright, and Chris Rennick on “Engineering Design Days,” a class-integrated curricular hackathon deployed in four undergraduate programs and five courses at Waterloo. Students and course instructors from each implementation provided feedback through surveys, focus groups, and interviews. The results so far have been overwhelmingly positive from both students and instructors, with the adoption of this concept expanding across the Faculty of Engineering. Registration is required.

Date: November 14th

Time: 12:00-1:00

Location:  E5 4106-4128

Lunch will be provided by the Dean’s office.
