UMIST, Manchester, Great Britain, August 18-22, 2002
This panel discussion by invited panelists will begin with a short overview of the LTSN Engineering survey. The overview will describe the methods used and will emphasize the differences found between the sectors (industry and academia) in issues and priorities. The majority of the panel session will be devoted to a discussion concerning three issues. The issues (e.g. teaching of key skills is essential/non essential during undergraduate courses) would be presented visually as an overhead or on a flip chart with a histogram showing how each sector rated it. Each of the three panel members would then present a few of the opposing comments that were submitted for the issue by the respondents and incorporate those with their own views in one overhead. This would take one minute (or two minutes maximum) for each person would leave six-nine minutes of discussion for each of the three issues. Invited panelists will submit abstracts according to the schedule below.
This conference emphasizes development of international partnerships in education and research. Through special sessions and international workshops, it provides ample opportunity for discussing future cooperative projects.
