APS1203 Engineering Teaching and Learning for Prospective Professors

APS1203 –Engineering Teaching and Learning for Prospective Professors.

This courses was run once as a substitute teacher and consistent of the following content

Course Overview – This course is designed for people with an interest in furthering their understanding of curriculum, teaching and learning, and in particular within the context of the engineering education. Basic concepts in curriculum, teaching and learning, and current research in the field of engineering education will be introduced and discussed. By the end of the course, students should have an understanding of the important models, ideas, and literature that currently inform the practice of teaching in engineering and science at the university level. Using this knowledge, all participants will create a portfolio that showcases elements of course design. Several in-class activities will support the development of this portfolio.

This course also includes a microteaching component, in which students will have the opportunity to develop and teach a short lesson to classmates. Through this, we will explore the mechanics of good teaching, common patterns in teaching and the benefits of reflection and peer assessment in teaching. APS1203 sessions have a significant emphasis on collaboration, teamwork and discussion, so please be prepared to participate!

MIE463 Integrated Systems Design

MIE463 Integrated Systems Design (Business Process management) 4th Year undergraduate)

Course Description:

Integrated System Design is a capstone course that integrates the various perspectives of an integrated system taught in the third year, including: Optimization, Quality, Management, Information, and Economics. The course approaches integrated systems design from a Business Process Management (BPM) perspective. Beginning with the Business Processes, it explores the concept of developing an Integrated Enterprise, via Business Process Design at an Enterprise level. We apply systems thinking to Strategy, Value Chains and Processes, Metrics and Design Heuristics. In the second half of the course, the concept of business process design is extended to incorporate Industrial Engineering perspectives such as cost, productivity, quality, and organization behaviour. BPMN (Business Process Modeling Notation) is used to document business processes. Our perspective is based on past research and hands on practice in applying business process management methods to a variety of enterprises across many sectors.
