Synopsis

Propelled by the widening adoption of communication technologies around the world, interest among educators in international cooperation has continued unabated. The present volume follows one published last year (2002) by the International Network for Engineering Education and Research (iNEER). Both books have the same purpose, namely, to chronicle the exciting, multi-faceted worldwide innovations in engineering education and research, much of which having been accomplished through collaborative efforts.

The contemporary issues covered by the thirty-two chapters include accreditation, funding, multimedia learning and instruction, web-based learning, mechatronics, and linkages between K-12 and engineering, and between art and engineering. The trend toward applying learning theories in engineering education is evident in these chapters. Detailed descriptions of innovations and assessment results are provided, enabling further development by others in the field.

The present volume is the latest in an archival series published by the International Network for Engineering Education and Research (iNEER), to chronicle the exciting, ongoing world innovations in engineering education and research, much of which having been accomplished through collaborative efforts.
