The central theme of the workshop is "Chemical Engineering, fit for the future?" We are pleased to welcome two prize-winning international educators to open our session on the future directions and the challenges of chemical engineering education. Suzanne Kresta is going to show how she improved the student's learning in mass and energy balances, and Jarka Glassey will detail the developments of the iTeach project, for improving teaching effectiveness in chemical engineering education. Some 'round-table' style discussion will then engage the audience participation just after the keynotes.
We will then have a diverse series of short presentations demonstrating innovative pedagogical practice; and of course further opportunity for discussion in a round-table conclusion.
The event will be organized by the Loss Prevention Working Party of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE) with the involvement of the European Process Safety Center (EPSC) and the involvement of Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), and will be conducted under the umbrella of the 10th European Congress of Chemical Engineering (ECCE 10).
