Nick Harrison joins TEDI-London workshop to shape future curriculum
Our Group Learning and Development Manager, Nick Harrison, joined industry peers to attend his second TEDI-London strategic workshop which aim to embed innovation in their curriculum.
The new education provider for future engineers places great emphasis on involving senior engineering and tech industry figures in their strategic planning. The 12 July workshop saw the group explore coaching and mentoring, including how to deliver effective support programmes, employability and career development for students, and how to ensure support and development is also available for the mentor. The agenda was built around updates from TEDI-London leaders, group discussions, and participants working in smaller groups on three focussed break-out sessions.
Founded by Arizona State University, Kings College London and UNSW Sydney, TEDI-London is solely focused on engineering, with their new general engineering degree bridging many disciplines including mechanical, electrical and electronic, civil, environmental, and product design. Their project-based, interdisciplinary, global design approach gives students the opportunity to work on projects that respond to real-life industry challenges.
Nick Harrison said: “I was delighted to attend this workshop and to play a role in shaping the education of the next generation of engineers. This was a great opportunity to share and develop ideas with both TEDI-London and industry employer peers and help shape their curriculum from an employer’s perspective.”
