MIPRO 2019: How to Teach Math in (Engineering) Context

Dr. Rebecca Christianson from Olin College of Engineering, Needham, USA, will hold an interesting workshop on „How to Teach Mathematics in the Engineering Context“ at the 42nd International Conference of MIPRO 2019,  organized by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing from Zagreb and MIPRO.
This keynote speaker is partially supported by the IEEE Education Society Distinguished Lecturer Program.

Dr. Rebecca Christianson is an Associate Professor of Applied Physics at Olin College of Engineering.  Olin College is a young, undergraduate only engineering college with a focus on hands on, project-based learning.  Prof. Christianson has taught there for fifteen years with a specialty in interdisciplinary classes which integrate mathematics, physics and engineering. Her research is in condensed matter physics including work in active matter, low dimensional magnetic materials and most recently, microfluidics. She earned her PhD in Physics from MIT, and did her postdoctoral work at Harvard University.

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

     Smart Island and Regions Lab

    Partnership Development Conference

    Sept 30 - Oct 2 2019

    Mljet Island, Croatia


    The one of the objectives of the conference is to start dialog on the topic of Smart Island as a Lab for social and technological innovation for comprehensive & sustainable living and tourism development.

    The topic is very relevant for Croatia, Mediterranean region and several Scandinavian- Baltic countries such Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Norway, Denmark.

    The one of the central ideas of this strategy is to develop a multidisciplinary collaboration between key stakeholders and research community (nationally and internationally) to help solving complex problems and challenges of smart regions and islands. It includes regional development, economic growth, infrastructure and services, environment, social cohesion, immigration and the sustainable tourism.

    We are putting forward the scientific systematic approach, extensive use of Smart ICT, socio-technological integration, the use of advanced innovation methods and tools such as Living Labs.
