SPEED-IUCEE Workshop

Student Platform for Engineering Education Development (SPEED) has been organizing workshops in India since 2009. SPEED has collaborated with IUCEE in 2013 and has conducted 5 workshops last year. The workshops were conducted in IUCEE consortium colleges in Hyderabad, Pune, Rajkot, Hubli and Delhi. The events focus on different themes every year and trains students from engineering colleges across the country. The theme for last year was Creativity and Innovation in Engineering Education. These workshops were successful and the outcomes have been developed as action plans in the own universities by the students.

The workshops duration is 3 days whose agenda depends on the theme of the respective workshop. The first day includes an ice breaking session, few group activities and introduction to the theme of the workshop. The second day starts with a presentation on the importance of action plan development followed by development of action plans by the participants by exploring the theme and involves presentation of the action plans by various groups to the peer of the colleges. The workshops are facilitated by 3 experienced SPEED members from across the country.
