Invited Speaker: Patricia Sheridan, Associate Director – Undergraduate Curriculum at the Institute for Leadership Education in Engineering (ILead) at the University of Toronto.

Competence in teamwork is a mandated requirement of graduating engineers. However, students are often expected to learn teamwork implicitly through their design projects and clubs. These experiences can result in minimally-controllable experiences that leave students resentful of the courses that include team projects and ill-equipped to work effectively in industry design teams post-graduation. Over the past 8 years, Patricia has both researched and instructed on effective team-learning in engineering design, and used leadership as a base for developing more industry-ready engineering graduates. This talk will discuss some strategies and tools used to incorporate explicit leadership and team learning into the engineering design classroom, how the Teamworks self- and peer-feedback system supports student learning, as well as lessons learned about student understanding of effective teamwork from her research.
