4th Dec 2015
CCT is proud to have been host to the 8th annual International Conference on Engaging on December 3 and 4. CCT’s own Graham Glanville and Kyle Goslin co-chaired the event along with CCT Advisory Board member Dr. Brett Becker who has been with ICEP since ‘the early days’ as program committee co-chair.
The International Conference on Engaging Pedagogy (ICEP) is an annual event that brings together researchers and practitioners in the field of third-level teaching in order to discuss means and methods of improving student engagement. The conference format includes standard paper and poster presentations intermingled with workshops and panel style discussions. 2015 is the eighth year of the ICEP conference series, its aim to further discussion and collaboration amongst researchers and practitioners in third level teaching and learning. In particular, the founders noticed that students appeared to be less engaged with material with each passing year. The conference is themed around one central principle – how can we as educators make education more engaging for our students?
The first ICEP conference was in 2008 and has since taken place in the National University of Ireland – Maynooth, University College Dublin, Griffith College Dublin, the National College of Ireland, the Institute of Technology, Blanchardstown, the Institute of Technology, Sligo and the Athlone Institute of Technology.
