Ensuring quality in professional education volume II: engineering pedagogy and international knowledge structures

Trimmer, Karen and Newman, Tara and Padro, Fernando F., eds. (2019) Ensuring quality in professional education volume II: engineering pedagogy and international knowledge structures. Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., Cham, Switzerland. ISBN 978-3-030-01083-6

Abstract

This book examines quality teaching in professional education in the fields of engineering and international knowledge structures. The second of a two-volume series, the editors and contributors structure the book around case studies which highlight the elements constituting good practice within professional education. While there is no one specific route to prepare well-qualified professionals, this volume explores the decisions the academics responsible for delivering this education make to ensure quality curricula. Ultimately, the key to effective preparations rests with the value employers place on the focus, emphasis and balance between the academic and practical in relation to their own expectations for skills that graduates must have. The second volume in this collection will appeal to students and scholars of professional pedagogy, and engineering pedagogy more specifically.
