Workshop Descriptions


Workshop 1A – Teaching Inclusive Leadership in Engineering: Theory-Based Approaches. 

Facilitators: Jannik Eikenaar and Alon Eisenstein 

Delivery Mode: In-person only 


In this session, participants will be introduced (or re-introduced) to several concepts of engineering leadership, apply those concepts through a case study, and then discuss their different applications. Participants will be exposed to the diversity of thought around inclusive leadership in engineering, and they will develop, re-think, and reinforce theirapproaches to teaching inclusive leadership. 

Objectives/Learning Outcomes 

  • Increase familiarity with and understanding of models, frameworks, and theories of leadership in engineering contexts 
  • Practice applying leadership concepts 
  • Engage with others teaching similar content 
  • Reflect on theory-based approaches to teaching inclusive leadership 

Targeted audience 

  • Educators familiar with and new to teaching theory-based inclusive engineering leadership 


  • Learn or review leadership concepts, including leadership models (e.g., transformational, transactional), leadership frameworks (e.g., positivist, social constructivist), and engineering leadership orientations (e.g., technical mastery, organizational innovation) 
  • Apply concepts through a case study 
  • Discuss varying applications and connect to participants’ teaching practices and contexts 


Workshop 1B – Reconciliation & Design  

Facilitators: Pam Wolf  

Delivery Mode: Hybrid (online and in-person) 


Pamela Wolf is an assistant professor of teaching at UBC Point Grey Campus on unceded, traditional, and ancestral Musqueam territory. She founded and leads the reconciliation + design curriculum and dialogue programs at UBC Vancouver at a faculty-wide scale. The program provides material and coaching to support the decolonization and Indigenization of engineering courses. 

In this workshop, you will learn how to: 

i) implement reconciliation in math-based, formula-centered, technical classes, 

ii) identify an appropriate role for yourself in decolonization and Indigenization, and 

iii) make a plan to avoid the three common errors below. 

When engineering faculty implement reconciliation in their classrooms, they typically run into the following three problems, which would normally take a few years to work through. First, they need funding for Indigenous speakers. Then, after they secure funding, they need relationships with Indigenious leaders in order to invite them to speak. After they have the relationship and invite to them to speak, faculty then realize that, due to the number of faculty who are inviting Indigenous thought leaders to speak, accepting all of the invitations is actually doing harm to Indigenous communities by taking so much time from Indigenous thought leaders, cutting into the time they have to work within their own communities. Finally, faculty realize that while the above implements Indigenization, the curricula are still not decolonized and reconciliation needs both Indigenization and decolonization. 


Workshop 1C – Creating with H5P: A free, open-source tool to add interactive questions and content to your course 

Facilitators: Kayli Johnson & Simon Lolliot 

Delivery Mode: Online only (in-person participants may join through a device)


This workshop will showcase a free, open-source html5 tool, H5P, that can be used to create interactive practice questions and course content. These interactive elements can be authored using an H5P authoring tool and then embedded within a learning management system (e.g. Canvas) or any website (e.g. WordPress). Unlike traditional online homework systems, H5P also offers opportunities for students to participate in content creation. 

In this 90 minute session we will introduce H5P, discuss its strengths and limitations, and highlight successful examples of implementation and course integration for various content types (e.g. multiple choice question sets, auto-graded essays, drag and drop, and interactive videos). We will then introduce the basic user interface and you will have the chance to create questions as we guide you through how to author H5P elements. We will demonstrate how these elements can then be embedded into learning management systems and websites.  

This session will be geared towards faculty and students who are interested in creating interactive practice questions and content for their courses and educational technology staff interested in learning about H5P. We hope that attendees walk away from this workshop with a working knowledge of what H5P can offer, whether H5P is a tool that would work well in your context, ideas for how to integrate H5P elements into your course, and the practical skills to start creating H5P content. 

Note for participants: A second screen would be helpful to follow along with the workshop on one screen and build H5P content on the other, but is not required. 


Instructions for Poster Presentations

The conference poster session will be held on Friday, May 13, from 12pm to 1:30pm. The full conference program can be found above. During the poster session, posters will be on display in the atrium of the Chemical and Biological Department Building. It is the presenters’ responsibility to bring the poster to the conference front desk by 10am on Friday, May 13, where they will be directed to the poster board and helped to display their posters. It is expected that presenters will be by their posters during the poster session and remove their posters at the end of the poster session. If the authors/presenters are attending the conference online please contact the organizers at your earliest convenience to make alternative arrangements for poster displays.

In addition to posters on display during the poster session, we would like to offer an opportunity to have the online version of the posters on display in Hopin (the conference online platform) and available to registered conference attendees for the duration of the conference. This is particularly important for online conference attendees and other colleagues who are interested in seeing the presented works but are unable to attend the in-person poster session.

In order assist the poster presenters with the preparation of their posters, we have created a set of instruction for the hardcopy as well as the online format of the posters.


For the preparation of your poster please use a template which produces a 4:3 Ratio (standard screen size) poster. The preferred size for the printout of the poster is 48”x36” (landscape), and suggested font size(s) below is chosen to provide comfortable viewing of the poster from a distance of 6 feet.
