ICEE conferences are held in different regions around the world, usually in August. Occasionally, the international community has used these events to hold international education workshops for the purpose of initiating or furthering regional alliances for cooperation in education and research endeavors. Here, the phrase ”education and research” is used to denote the broad range of activities that typify the work of a 21st Century engineering educator, in which there is a tendency to create a closer linkage between the classroom and the laboratory.
Official delegates to these workshops represent not only themselves and their own institutions, but also their countries. Delegates are selected based on their ability to assume this broad role, and hence are recognized for their stature, broad interests and experience, and accomplishments and familiarity with the state of international development in education and research.
Workshops usually are held in conjunction with an ICEE either during, just before or after the conference. A workshop usually lasts two days, with the second day reserved for finalizing a draft report.
If it is envisioned that future cooperative activities will require new funding, it is recommended that the funding agencies be contacted in the planning process; however, this is not a requisite for organizing an ICEE Education Workshop.
Sample reports on past ICEE Education Workshops are posted on the iNEER website. From the website main page (www.ineer.org), go to ”Reports/Talks” and scroll down to the items.
For the purpose of planning and execution efficiency, the iNEER Board and the ICEE-ISC recommend the following procedure and guidelines for the consideration of anyone interested in organizing an ICEE Education Workshop. It is assumed that the workshop is held in August. If the workshop takes place at other time, the dates below need to be adjusted accordingly.
