CONFERENCES & SPECIAL SESSIONS
After some months working in the project, we have some published work.
PUBLICATION IN THE SEFI MWG SEMINAR
June 26-29, 2018
With the starting point of the Framework for Mathematics Curricula in Engineering Education, developed by the SEFI-Mathematical Working Group, a consortium made of higher education
teachers from 8 different European countries work together in new rules for assessing mathematical
competencies. We present here the first outcome of the project: the learning and teaching platform that will be a central part of the project development.
EDUCON2018 SPECIAL SESSION
April 17-20, 2018
The change in the educational paradigm over the past few years demands a profound revision of the teaching and learning methodology. This new methodology must be applied in the different scenarios that the technological revolution allows, and should reach a consensus in the way the acquisition of competencies is evaluated at different educational levels.
As it is well known, the regulatory framework of the European Higher Education Area has highlighted the need to develop new quality teaching systems, different methodologies, and different educational processes to be used by teams of professors, lecturers and trainers in the universities involved in these changes.
This special session will focus on specific ways to evaluate and assess the acquisition of competencies by engineering students.
Since current lecturers are much more familiar with the content view, it is a major challenge for us to deal with competencies-oriented assessment goals. The collaboration in this session may provide ideas and material for supporting them in this respect. Furthermore, the development of a new approach is being demanded by engineering and science trainers to motivate students, and also for students to be motivated with mathematics learning.
