Enhancing Engineering Education through Scholarship of Teaching and Learning:
Showcase of a Journey from Micro to Macro Levels of Practice

Scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) is associated with a personal journey of growth as a teacher, which usually takes place at the micro-level, in the classroom. In engineering education, SOTL efforts are essential in translating suitable education concepts into innovative practices that are fitting to the body of knowledge to help students learn. In this presentation, a SoTL journey of how a micro level practice in engineering classes evolved into meso (institutional) level and macro (national and international) level implementations is shared. This reflection illustrates the potentials and promises of SoTL practice as means to create impact within and beyond classroom practice to enhance engineering education.

Can You Feel the Exponential?
Challenges and Opportunities of AI in Education

The swift and steepening progression of technology is posing challenges to the essential skills that must be imparted to upcoming graduates. One prime example is Artificial Intelligence, a field that professionals across all industries will inevitably need to master in the future. As a result, universities must adjust their curricula to align with this evolving demand. Concurrently, this very technology can be utilized within the realm of education, both for dishonest purposes and to enhance productivity.

Navigating the ethical complexities associated with its use and restructuring educational approaches to accommodate these new possibilities presents a formidable undertaking. There are no straightforward answers to these dilemmas. However, the talk aims to offer insightful considerations in the face of these challenging, yet exciting times characterized by exponential transformation.

Miriam Reiner
Director of the VR/AR and Neurocognition Lab at the Technion institute, Israel

Photo of Miriam ReinerProf. Miriam Reiner has been studying technologies for enhanced human learning in social and other contexts. She uses applied neuroscience methods integrated with human centric technology VR/AR/Metaverse. Has above 150 publications in peer reviewed journals, books and conferences, two books, has been a keynote speaker multiple conferences, and an inventor of numerous patents. She has been a visiting professor for part time each year at Stanford, at Nanyang Technological University and more. Miriam has been collaborating with leading international corporations on human computer interfaces, and has served as an expert on major EU committees related to future innovative technologies. She founded and lead the VR/AR and neurocognition lab at the Technion, mainly with awards from the EU, and trained about 40 PhD’s and Master of Science graduate students.

Her work is in the interface of neuroscience and model-based machine learning aiming to develop novel technologies for human enhancement. Some of her key results include methods of VR/AR for expedited memory consolidation, enhanced spatial intelligence, expedited problem solving, and error-potential-based brain-computer-interfaces, for restructuring neural patterns to accelerate rehabilitation.

Her current focus is on extraction of neural biomarkers from eye dynamics in VR/AR for an eye-based brain machine (VR/AR) enhanced synergy.
