Deadline 1 March 2021, 4pm G.M.T.
From this year, I will be volunteering as an International mentor in the Safety Champignons in Engineering Education Fellowship Programme, a programme to enable engineering educators from low- and middle-income countries to improve the quality in teaching and learning in their institutes. This first phases of this programme will be run virtually by UCL and NMITe on behalf of the Royal Academy of Engineering in the United Kingdom in collaboration with the Lloyds Register Foundation.
If your country is on the list below and you are an engineering educator who would like to take part, do get your application in soon!
The Safety Champions in Engineering Education (SCEE) fellowship programme is seeking applications from engineering education institutions to participate in its Safety Champions in Engineering Education (SCEE) fellowship programme. The programme aims to create a network of safety champions in engineering education to improve the quality of teaching and learning in engineering education institutions through adoption of (new) technologies, pedagogical approaches and partnerships that will enhance safety and sustainability in engineering practice in the areas of the world which are most in need. The SCEE programme is designed for engineering educators from low- and middle-income countries who have high potential for leadership in their discipline and with an outstanding and proven record of excellence in engineering education. The successful participant will take part in a three-year Safety Champions in Engineering Education (SCEE) fellowship programme
Applications are now being accepted from Countries listed as less developed, low, middle, and upper middle income countries by the ODA list (http://www.oecd.org/dac/financing-sustainable-development/development-finance-standards/DAC-List-ODA-Recipients-for-reporting-2021-flows.pdf) .
In the setup of the programme, three engineering education institutions are encouraged to partner, using the hub and spoke partnership model.
