In 2014, the Academy published a report with the Centre for Real World Learning (CRL) at the University of Winchester, Thinking like an engineer: implications for the education system. The report reframed the challenge of producing engineers as a question of developing a better understanding of the ways engineers think and act and identified six engineering habits of mind.

Learning to be an Engineer explores the ways that schools can use this approach to create better and more engaging learning opportunities for would-be engineers. The research also explores the ways in which the idea of signature pedagogies for engineering can be applied in the real world of busy schools and colleges, and the kind of support that teachers require.

At this launch event, the report's authors will present the findings from their study and discuss the implications for training future engineers.



A full agenda will be available soon.
