Overview

It’s a good tradition that, the International Society for Engineering Pedagogy (IGIP), organizes Special Tracks @ EDUCON Conferences – the ITEP series, ITEP’xx.

ITEP’18 @ EDUCON 2018 traditionally aims to offer an open discussion and a reflection in the use of Information Technologies in Engineering Education (EE) and their appropriate Pedagogy. It also intends to foster the involvement in continuing education, bridging the gap between higher education and learning on the workplace by also focusing on the IT use in lifelong learning and training. At K-12 level this session intends to evaluate the progress of IT in fostering the engagement of younger people in the field of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

It is also important to understand and to discuss the role of EE in order to promote the technological, product and industrial innovation, developments for people with special needs, for health and for ageing, not ignoring the Key components of any M2M system within IoT.

At any level it is important to evaluate the IT power in facilitating the collaborative work everywhere.

The topics include (but are not limited to):

  • IT in Engineering Education (EE)
  • Online Experimentation
  • Multisensory Learning Environments
  • Remote, Virtual and Augmented reality tools
  • 3D Virtual Environments
  • Haptic Devices and Serious Games
  • Online Experimentation Tools to Engage Students
  • Tools for Higher Order Thinking Skills
  • Multimedia for Education
  • Mobile Devices in Education
  • IT in K-12 Education
  • IT in lifelong learning and training
  • Intelligent Tutoring Systems
  • IT in EE and:
    • M2M systems
    • Technological, Product and Industrial Innovation
    • Perception and development of IT use for People with Special Needs
    • Perception and development of IT use in Ageing
