Global co-creation of learning resources towards improved quality: Possibility or Utopia?

PDF logo Get the slides

Today educators have extraordinary means to globally collaborate towards increased quality of educational material. Collaboration and peer review is generally accepted to bring a higher quality into research, and university rankings rely to a very large extent upon such work.

High-quality education is the primary responsibility of university teachers. But how often are similar quality criteria applied in education as in research? How often do educators globally collaborate to enhance the quality of the education in their local environment? How often do educators co-create and review their respective learning units? How much collaborative high-quality remote "real-life" engineering is used in global education today?

A concept which allows for voluntary cocreation and collaboration of learning material in a global but local environment, including the very important experimental part of engineering education, will be discussed. A set of complementary remote laboratories are developed, reviewed and thereafter reused in different university environments. Theoretical resources are developed by different teachers, either in isolation or in co-creation. All material are related to Creative Commons, and go through a rigorous self-evaluation process (based upon the EIT* Label Handbook). After such a successful self-evaluation a quality badge will be received and the unit can be sent out for an iterative Quality Improvement Process in which peers review the material and suggests improvements. Depending upon the result an updated badge is received. Students have thereafter the possibility to also rate the module. This results in an open feedback mechanism from both teachers who are interested in the field as well as well as students learning from the resources.

The overall concept is engineering technical neutral whereas the presentation focuses an applications towards the energy sector.

Artificial Intelligence in Engineering Education: Exploring Opportunities and Overcoming Challenges

PDF logo Get the slides

The integration of innovative technologies, such as artificial intelligence, is transforming the landscape of engineering education. While these technologies have the potential to significantly enhance and extend the learning experience, their full potential can only be realized through the implementation of appropriate pedagogical strategies. Artificial intelligence can optimize the performance of real-world assets and enable learners to accomplish tasks that would otherwise be impossible without technology. However, the emergence of AI-powered tools such as ChatGPT and AI Sparrow is prompting educators to reevaluate traditional approaches to teaching and learning. This keynote presentation will provide insights on: 1) technology integration frameworks that align advanced technologies with relevant pedagogical strategies, 2) research-based evidence from a systematic review of the use of artificial intelligence in higher education, and 3) an examination of how AI programs such as ChatGPT and AI Sparrow are leading to a reevaluation of education and providing new opportunities to enhance the learning experience.

Sustained exponential advances in computing power, drops in associated costs, and Open Science initiatives allow us to process on a personal computer the metadata from most major international academic publishers. Alexandria3k is an open-source software library and tool that builds on this capability to allow the conduct of sophisticated bibliometric and scientometric studies as well as systematic literature reviews in a transparent, repeatable, reproducible, and efficient manner. In total the Alexandria3k system provides relational access to 1.5 PB of data comprising 2.6 billion records. Diverse examples demonstrate the system's use through ad hoc queries and the population of domain-specific databases.
