Emerging Stronger: Lasting Impact from Crisis Innovation

Emerging Stronger: Lasting Impact from Crisis Innovation

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented amount of disruption in universities. In engineering education, we had to rise to the challenges posed by a lack of face-to-face content, closing of laboratory and manufacturing spaces, and the need for unsupervised assessment. This report, drawing on the contributions of 250 participants, more than 20 case studies and over 30 student stories, aims to capture our thinking in the midst of this crisis. From April to June 2020, we brought together colleagues and students to consider and share their learning about our courses and learning environments, and to explore what changes we are making now that can and should be continued into the future.
