Forming future Engineers in and between classrooms

The Dean's Teaching Seminar on the 19th of April focuses on forming future engineers in and between classrooms. Keynote by professor Lars Ulriksen.

About the Seminar

Engineering students are on their way to becoming engineers. This entails developing competences based on disciplinary knowledge and skills, but it also means developing a way of thinking and practicing, a particular way of approaching the world when one meets it. Engineering students not only develop their academic capacities – they develop as persons as well. This aspect of engineering studies happens in class and in-between classes, in the interaction with the social and physical environment. The keynote will address these ‘other’ sides of engineering education that relate to the formation of a future engineer – how they happen, and how we as teachers can approach them.

 

Time and Place

The seminar will be held at Lyngby Campus on the 19th of April, from 12:00 to 15:30 o'clock.
