    Our HumEng Conversations series will resume for 2021 on February 8, 12-1 pm. Details TBC
  3. The University of Technology Sydney has 4 PhD projects available in humanitarian engineering: Developing authentic assessments in humanitarian engineering education Gender equity in humanitarian engineering education Key skills in humanitarian engineering A phenomenography of humanitarian engineering For further details, click here and search for "humanitarian". Applications for a start date from January 2021 close September 30, and applications for starting in the second half of 2021 close April 30, 2021. Further details here.
  4. We've started what will hopefully become an ongoing regular event, getting the Humanitarian Engineering Education community together to chat about topics of shared interest. We held our first events on September 7 and October 12. Our next event is on November 9 on Zoom, before breaking for the holiday period to resume in February. We’ll be discussing research in humanitarian engineering education and practice. Jacquie Thomas from the University of Sydney will speak about pivoting humanitarian engineering research in response to COVID-19, and Andrea Mazzurco from Swinburne University of Technology will be speaking about the landscape of humanitarian engineering education research. We’ll reserve some time towards the end of the session to set an agenda for 2021. Speakers: Jacquie Thomas is Lecturer in Humanitarian Engineering at the University of Sydney. She is passionate about improving peoples' lives and protecting the environment. She started a WaSH research group at the Ifakara Health Institute - an NGO based in rural Tanzania - where she lived and worked for nearly four years, before joining the University of Sydney in 2016 to teach in the new Humanitarian Engineering major, the first of its kind in Australia. Andrea Mazzurco is Lecturer in Engineering Education at Swinburne University of Technology. He is passionate about humanitarian engineering and sustainable development, which are at the core of his teaching and research. He seeks to bring together technical and social science expertise to foster a more sustainable future for his community and abroad through his teaching, research, and practice. Join us on Zoom.

    Register here. Assessment of Socio-Technical and Co-Design Expertise in Humanitarian Engineering 2019 Australasian Association for Engineering Education (AAEE) Award for Engineering Education Research Design Dr Andrea Mazzurco and Dr Scott Daniel Humanitarian Engineering (HE) is emerging in universities and professional workplaces worldwide. HE projects exist at the intersection of engineering and sustainable community development, and therefore socio-technical and co-design expertise are fundamental. However, such skills and mindsets are difficult to teach, learn, and assess. There is a need to develop effective teaching and assessment strategies, dependent upon clearly operationalised definitions of both socio-technical and co-design expertise. In this workshop, the Energy Conversion Playground (ECP), a scenario-based assessment developed to assess socio-technical thinking and co-design expertise in the context of humanitarian engineering, will be discussed. Participants will have the opportunity to work with the assessment and discuss how to develop their own scenario-based assessments for other constructs. Code of Conduct: All AAEE events are currently covered by the Engineers Australia General Regulations and Code of Ethics. For a contextual example of what is expected in the context of an AAEE event, please see the AAEE 2020 Conference code of conduct published on the conference website (bottom of page). Register here.
