Turning Insights into Action

The World Engineering Education Forum in Cape Town was packed with great content and inspiration on transforming engineering education for the good of society as a whole. The event culminated with the Global Engineering Deans Council (GEDC) Industry Forum where 60+ leaders from education and industry gathered to turn their insights into action-oriented ideas addressing challenges across 4 pervasive themes: Skills & Talent, Educational Transformation, Discovery & Innovation and Societal Impact. To build on this 6 active participants and theme leaders joined us in our final webinar of the year to share what they learnt, and more importantly, what they will take forward from this highly engaging and interactive event.
