MIPRO 2019 - 42nd International Convention

WS2 - How to Teach Math in (Engineering) Context

Tuesday, 5/21/2019 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM, Camelia 1, Grand hotel Adriatic, Opatija

Organizers:

MIPRO and University of Zagreb, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing

Chair:

Rebecca Christianson (Olin College of Engineering, Needham, USA)


This keynote speaker is partially supported by the IEEE Education Society Distinguished Lecturer Program.

Moderator:

Predrag Pale (University of Zagreb, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, Croatia)

Contact:

Juraj Petrović, juraj.petrovic@fer.hr (University of Zagreb, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, Croatia)

About:

In this workshop, participants will explore the integration of mathematics learning into a hands-on, project-based engineering context. We will work through example activities from a few different contexts so you can experience how these activities work from a student perspective. We will discuss the pedagogical research and theories underpinning why these sorts of activities are so successful, and we will discuss the practicalities of implementing project based learning including project selections and framing, structure, teaming, mentoring and assessment.

Expected outcomes:

Participants will gain a practical understanding of how to teach mathematics fundamentals through project based learning in an engineering context. Participants will understand both the student experience in these activities as well as the faculty considerations in designing them.

Target audience:

Technical faculty who wish to learn more about practical implementations of project based learning for teaching fundamental concepts.

Preliminary program:

Basic overview of project based learning.
Participants work through simple examples to illustrate the student experience in project based learning.
Discussion of approaches and key elements to learning quantitative topics within a project based context.
Practical considerations in project based learning including group work, teaming, classroom practice and assessment.

The workshop will be held in English.

Location:

Opatija, with its 170-year-old tourism tradition, is the leading seaside resort of the Eastern Adriatic and one of the most famous tourist destinations on the Mediterranean. With its aristocratic architecture and style, Opatija has been attracting artists, kings, politicians, scientists, sportsmen, as well as business people, bankers and managers for more than 170 years.

The tourist offer in Opatija includes a vast number of hotels, excellent restaurants, entertainment venues, art festivals, superb modern and classical music concerts, beaches and swimming pools – this city satisfies all wishes and demands.

Opatija, the Queen of the Adriatic, is also one of the most prominent congress cities in the Mediterranean, particularly important for its ICT conventions, one of which is MIPRO, which has been held in Opatija since 1979, and has attracted more than a thousand participants from over forty countries. These conventions promote Opatija as one of the most desirable technological, business, educational and scientific centers in South-eastern Europe and the European Union in general.
