2019 NICKEL Conference: Expanding Leadership Capacity
Leadership learning is not a task, that studied once affords proficiency. It is a practice that develops through experience to enhance both capacity and identity as a leader. This conference will explore practical approaches, exercises and models for embedding leadership learning in all aspects of the student experience – both undergrad and graduate, curricular and co-curricular. We have curated a set of experiential learning sessions and conversations that highlight emerging good practice across the country.
Objectives for NICKEL 2019:
Build relationships between individuals engaged in engineering leadership education.
Form a network of learning and action.
Demonstrate and experience active leadership learning.
Share best practices and greatest challenges.
Integrate new ideas into university programs.
Stimulate interest in research on engineering leadership and its pedagogy
Who Should Attend?
University faculty, staff and instructors from Canadian universities with a personal interest and passion for the topic and role alignment with engineering leadership initiatives.
