The conference aims to provide a meeting place where you can interact and exchange experiences with colleagues from other engineering education institutions. Thus, you are encouraged to bring good examples from your teaching practice on the use of active learning (article in danish - english) in engineering education.

The conference will be a mixture of active keynotes, practical Hands-on sessions, Explore sessions and social arrangements.


The visit of Olin College of Engineering to Europe for this Conference is possible due to a cooperation between the Dutch network for Engineering Education 4TU-CEE and IUPN.
