Special Session on Networking Actions to Share and Promote Online Learning Experiences


The organizers of this Special Track have been dedicating special attention to the development of different types of contents for distance learning activities, to the promotion of collaborative learning and new pedagogical approaches in Engineering Education through international Networks and to the collaboration with the International Society for Engineering Pedagogy – IGIP. Those Educational Modules have been shared with great multidisciplinary perspectives. In this context, this Special Track aims to provide knowledge exchange and open discussions on networking initiatives and projects to share and promote online learning experiences, especially in STEM, at higher education, secondary, vocational and training areas. These learning experiences should be focused on collaborative and immersive learning approaches, involving, for example, virtual or augmented reality technologies, which can contribute for the development of an Immersive Engineering Education in the concept of Education 4.0.


The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Education 4.0
STEM Education
Immersive Engineering Education
Immersive Technologies and Applications
Virtual and Augmented Reality
Networking Initiatives and Projects
