Abstract [en]

Universities must take swift, targeted, and efficient action to overcome future challenges in engineering education. In particular, good decision-making is required to strengthen the educational efforts that influence students’ learning. Engineering education research has not yet produced a robust framework capable of supporting a systematic approach to implementing change initiatives. In addition, existing pedagogical research provides little guidance on how best to ensure the spread of good practice, and the available evidence indicates that the diffusion of such practices tends to be limited, which reduces their long-term impact. Striving for effective teaching provides a systems change at many universities, still universities seem unable to fully transmit or properly support the adoption of new practices, approaches and methods needed by faculty. This paper presents a model that can be used to guide change efforts and support good practices at times when careful decision-making can have profound long-term consequences.
