PBL and Polytechnic Education

I spend a good part of yesterday with a delightful delegation of Indonesian professors here on an Internship Program on Establishing Centres of Technology in Polytechnic.

Indonesian delegation to Conestoga - May 2016

As part of a CiCanHumber College partnership they spent the day at Conestoga looking at our Institute of Food Processing Technology, the Centre for Smart Manufacturing, our Applied Research program, and at Project Based Learning. That’s where I came in.

Read more about how Project Based Learning can support a Polytechnic Education in PBL as a way to Professional Practice posted in the PBL section of this blog.

About N. Nelson

A college professor with more than 30 years of teaching experience, I am constantly exploring how the current educational paradigm can be adapted to better meet the needs of today’s learners, while still reaching the mandate placed on us by the community and employers to prepare these students for life and careers beyond the college. I enjoy sharing my teaching experiences and expertise through Professional Development Workshops on topics such as Project-Based Learning, Flipping your Classroom, Impacting Student Success, Engaging Large Classes, and Stretching your Teaching Comfort Zone. I am also willing to share my experiences and expertise on the processes required to meet the updated CEAB engineering accreditation requirements.
