Sustained Improvements in Teaching and Learning in Engineering Education

Project team: Professor Janis Swan (Contact Project Leader), University of Waikato; Dr Elizabeth Godfrey, University of Waikato; Dr Gerard Rowe, University of Auckland; Dr Rob Torrens, University of Waikato; Neel Pandey, Manukau Institute of Technology; John Findlay, Otago Polytechnic.
Partnerships: Ako Aotearoa, The University of Auckland, Manukau Institute of Technology, Otago Polytechnic.

This collaborative project aimed to bring together engineering education leaders from New Zealand engineering degree-granting institutions to scope and develop a strategy to support sustained improvements in engineering teaching and learning.

The engineering education community shared best practice of curriculum design, delivery, student assessment, evaluation, quality control and teaching resources. From this collaboration a list of recent and current engineering education projects have been collated. Over the longer-term this collaborative group will look to develop and lead projects that improve teaching practice and learning outcomes across tertiary engineering education.
