The Virtual Workshop Series is a professional resource designed for early career faculty and graduate students.

Please stay tuned for future sessions, topics to include: Ethics and Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) in IEEE.


Professional resource designed for early-career faculty and graduate students

The focus of this workshop is Outcome Based Education (OBE), which is an educational theory that bases each part of an educational system around having documented student outcomes. Programs must regularly use appropriate, documented processes for assessing and evaluating the extent to which students attain those outcomes and utilize the results of evaluations as input for the program’s continuous improvement.

Presenters include:

  • Outcome Based Course and Activity Design & Team Based Learning- Dr. Ernesto Ocampo Edye, Professor, Catholic University of Uruguay 
  • Outcome Based Education and the Quality of an Educational System – Dr. Avichal Kapur, Joint Secretary, University Grants Commission, New Delhi
  • Assessing Group Work - Dr. Liz Burd, Professor and Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Teaching), The University of New Castle, Australia
  • Assessing ABET Student Outcomes Efficiently - Dr.  John Impagliazzo, Professor Emeritus, Hofstra University, New York, USA
