Overview

based on implementation and active utilization of 1) artificial intelligence, 2) big data, 3) data analytics and machine learning algorithms, 4) sophisticated smart software/hardware systems and smart technology on campuses and in the classrooms, including virtual and remote labs, and 5) innovative technology-based teaching strategies and learning styles. Our approach for a design and development of Smart Education (SmE), Smart University (SmU) and Smart Pedagogy (SmP) is based on the idea that SmE, SmU and SmP – as smart systems – should demonstrate significant maturity at various “smartness” levels, including their abilities for 1) adapting, 2) sensing (awareness), 3) inferring (logical reasoning), 4) selflearning, 5) anticipating, and 6) self-organizing. This special session will call for papers with the up-to-date outcomes of on-going research, design and development projects that are predominantly focused on various topics of Smart Engineering Education, Smart Engineering University, Smart Campus and Smart Pedagogy for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Additionally, a special part of this session will be dedicated to various aspects of accommodations for college students with disabilities in STEM education.
