The main goals of this collaboration:
(1) develop a framework within the South African context for implementing an integrated curriculum in engineering programs;
(2) identify areas where it is feasible to implement integrated curricular approaches as pilots within faculties, including strategies for approval;
(3) develop a training program for staff to become expert facilitators of active integrated learning.
This project also seeks to leverage the cooperation and participation of multiple SA institutions, which allows for the sharing of ideas and experiences and overcomes some of the limitations present when institutions attempt curricular reform independently. Built into this project is cross-institutional collaboration and opportunities for training and development of academic staff, which makes it uniquely positioned to effect curricular change in engineering education in the South African landscape.
