Designing for Student Engagement

"Meeting the Needs of the 21st Century: Designing for Student Engagement" is one of two courses offered as part of Olin College's I2E2 Summer Institute, which provides participants with the opportunity to conceive and catalyze change in engineering education.

Through participatory design exercises, case studies, and presentations from experts, you will learn about, experience, and design new and meaningful STEM curricula. Program sessions will help you to:

  • Understand state of the art research in STEM education and current best practices
  • Anticipate the needs of today's student body and the curricular practices that engage and empower today's students
  • Design solutions that are appropriate for your institutional context
  • Identify structural and cultural obstacles to change and create strategies to reshape them
  • Practice effective leadership to build successful solutions for curricular change

You will work together with others from similar institutions, working on similar projects, to develop concrete action plans for curricular change. Sessions will be highly participatory and you will be challenged to continually consider new ideas and put novel approaches into practice. Institute attendees will acquire a new lens through which to view your projects, an expanded repertoire of techniques and solutions, and concrete steps to take your plans forward.
