First Announcement

Call for papers


Call for Papers
---------------
Authors are invited to submit digests of their presentations (500 words
minimum) within the theme of the conference to the Programme Committee
by January 31, 1997 via the Chair of the Organising Committee, Prof
David Lidgate. Please provide the title, author's name, affiliation,
mailing address, phone and fax numbers, and email address. Authors will

Topics
------
In accordance with the mission of the EAEEIE given at the end of this
leaflet, the theme of the EAEEIE '97 conference was chosen to be:


INNOVATIONS AND QUALITY IN EDUCATION FOR ELECTRICAL AND INFORMATION
ENGINEERING

Innovation and Quality have become key terms in the evaluation of
engineering education. Innovation may be defined as the ability of an
educational system to introduce new ideas and concepts that enhance the
learning experience for the individual. This has particular relevance
within any system where rapid change and a degree of uncertainty
predominate. This is the situation facing engineering education in the
late twentieth century.
Quality can, in turn, be defined as a matter of specifying worthwhile
learning goals and enabling individuals to achieve them. When applied
to education, this can lead to ambiguity and confusion due to the
multidimensional nature of the discipline. This is especially true of
the assessment of quality. In engineering education particularly, the
environment has become very competitive: for students, grants,
sponsorship and industrial support. Establishments that can
differentiate themselves from their competitors by virtue of their
ability to meet the needs of their customers are the ones that will
survive over the longer term.
There thus emerges a need to focus on innovation and quality in
engineering education, not necessarily due to falling standards but
because of a need to improve standards to respond to the requirements of
the future.


EAEEIE expects papers based on any of the following topics but not
excluding other relevant contributions, devoted to Electrical and
Information Engineering teaching.
Life long Learning L3
(preparation for L3 and continuous professional development)

Quality Assessment and Validation of Courses
(peer review/external examiners and professional accreditation)

Evaluative Methodologies in Academia
(managing continuous and competence based assessment)

Innovative applications in teaching (use of computers)

Links to Internet
(browsing and flexible delivery, spreading tool)

The Future of Electical and Information Engineering Education

Industrial Collaboration
(Teaching Company Scheme, industrial placements)
