Shaping the Future of Engineering Education

Verschillende STEM-experten uit de lerarenopleiding van Thomas More in Vorselaar verleenden hun creatieve energie aan een Europees partnerschap om Creative Engine te ontwikkelen. Een gratis online platform voor onderwijsinstellingen en bedrijven om creativiteit en innovatief denken in jouw organisatie te stimuleren.

 4 in every 5 companies surveyed said they didn’t have the right innovation and creativity skills But then, they didn’t have access to Creative Engine to close their skills gap ... but you will! So, what’s Creative Engine, I hear you ask.

Well, join us online on Wednesday 30th June 2021 for the Shaping the Future of Engineering Education conference, where we’ll be addressing the need to create a stronger connection between Creativity, Innovation and Engineering, and you’ll find out more about Creative Engine – a new online resource that is free and easy to use.

Now more than ever, we need to prepare the next generation, so they can embrace change, manage disruption and be open to new ideas that promote innovation and drive active participation in a knowledge-based society.

Creativity and Innovation skills are fundamental to all academic disciplines, business practices and societal growth. But are young professionals equipped with these multidisciplinary skills needed to tackle problems, generate solutions, and meet the demands of modern industry? Despite companies stating they need innovation-ready engineering graduates, few institutions can deliver on this requirement.

That is why Creative Engine was developed. It’s a new, free and accessible solution for educational institutions, business and industry to help you embrace creativity and new innovative thinking in your organisation.

At this Webinar Conference, you’ll get an exclusive preview of the Creative Engine online platform, and you’ll learn how it can become your one-stop resource for your Innovation and Creativity skills development needs.
