Working Groups

Working Groups


Working groups are formed by participants with a common interest in a topic related to the subject matter of the conference. The groups of five to ten participants work together electronically before the start of the conference. Working groups convene on Monday June 26th – the exact time will be shown in the Conference Programme. The working groups start working digitally together prior to the conference; you can find detailed information about the activities in the working group descriptions below.

Every working group member must register for and be present at the conference in order to be part of the working group and considered a contributor to the final report. The working groups present their preliminary results to conference attendees at a special working group presentation session on the last day of the conference and can optionally submit a state-of-the-art paper after the conference concludes.


The four Working Groups at the conference are


Lifelong Learning at Engineering Institutions: Barriers and Enablers

Developing Mastery in Digital Age: Learning from Deliberate Failure

Curriculum Agility: The Self-Mapping Pilot

Designing the University of the Future – an International Perspective
