The 2016 North American CDIO Meeting and Networking Event is being hosted by the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Manitoba on March 17-18. The theme is “CDIO Concepts and Engineering Accreditation”. This highly engaging and multi-faceted meeting will introduce the CDIO framework to participants allowing them to learn from practices elsewhere and how these practices help recognition by accreditation bodies. Included will be presentations on: (i) convergence/mapping CEAB and CDIO attributes, (ii) measuring effectively the competency levels at course level and upon graduation, (iii) industry and regulators views on important attributes and (iv), innovative teaching techniques. Ample opportunities will be provided for networking.
