Past Event

This seminar will include speakers from academia and industry to share information about the pedagogy of dealing with course objectives, testing, engineering ethics and cheating in the classroom. This event will be conducted in two sessions. Session one will discuss the importance of the alignment of learning objectives, class activities and assessments. Session two will discuss the importance of emphasizing professional ethics and recognizing cheating in the 21st century. Post-secondary engineering faculty from Minnesota State Colleges and Universities and the University of Minnesota, Duluth will lead the seminar discussions, provide team room dialogue breakouts and whole group sharing feedback. The outcome of this seminar is to provide some practical value tools that can immediately be taken back to the classroom for implementation.
