Student Centred Learning

Preparing quality educators is a challenge in developing and developed countries. Over the years, a variety of approaches have been practiced such as active learning, cooperative learning, problem-based learning, project-based learning, case studies, etc. to foster students’ interest and strengths. Therefore, this special track aims to gather experts, researchers and practitioners with diverse perspectives to share their practices and research findings in addressing the challenges.

Education for Sustainable Development

Education is recognized as a powerful tool in promoting sustainable development leading to the concept of ‘Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)’. Sustainable development is a concept that is not new but complex and not easy to define. This special track provides a platform for those involved in ESD to exchange ideas, share experiences and research for a better understanding and implementation of ESD in the Asian context.

Spatial Ability

Globalization and rapid pace of advancement in technologies exert tremendous effect on the teaching and learning of engineering related disciplines. It has been known that spatial ability among engineering students plays an important role in successful engineering learning. Substantial efforts have been made to increase students’ spatial ability in early learning and higher education setting to align curriculum with the advancement of technologies. This track serves to present and discuss relevant research and developments as well as teaching experiences concerning spatial ability.

Design Thinking

The definition and terms of design thinking have been discussed for quite some time but the implementation in educating engineering students remains a challenge. The concept has various different meanings, which in most cases depends on the context of various domain-specific kowledge disciplines. It is therefore timely to discuss the concept and application of design thinking-based approach to enhance creativity and innovation among learners. This track provides the opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share and discuss topics of mutual interests related to design thinking.

Chemical Engineering Education

Chemical engineering encompasses a wide set of disciplines including industrial chemistry, process systems engineering, biochemical engineering and material engineering. The areas in which chemical engineers are active extend far beyond the boundaries of the chemical industry. This expansion in the role of chemical engineers, together with new requirements from the society, fast moving technical development, etc. raises major questions concerning the need for new directions of chemical engineering education. Therefore, this special session is targeted for chemical engineering academics and researchers, to discuss ongoing changes and development in chemical engineering education.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Education

STEM Education has been the focus in various levels of the community due to the demand for highly skilled workers that are literate in STEM. However, the poor global achievement and enrollment of students in STEM at school and university levels have raised many questions on students’ interest and ability, the quality of instructional methods, and the curriculum. Therefore, this special session is designed to gather researchers and practitioners in STEM Education to share ideas, activities and issues related to STEM Education to provide insight on future actions in advancing STEM Education in the region.

Service Learning

The purpose of this track is to provide an unprecedented opportunity for sharing issues that require bold global actions. The focus will be on building transnational relationships and participation in service-learning. These focal points will be threaded throughout the presentation to allow meaningful dialogue among academicians, community partners, students, and other professionals.

The aim of this track is to (i)increase the scientific contribution to service-learning, (ii)strengthen networking between different institutions of higher education and community partners on a global scale, (iii) enhance student engaged citizenship, (iv) proliferate participation through both theoretical and applied service-learning as an innovative and transformative pedagogical tool in higher education. Discover how service-learning is implemented from all over the world.
