IACEE

At Tecnológico de Monterrey we are honored to host the prestigious 16th World Conference on Continuing Engineering Education, IACEE 2018, where global continuing education educators, learners, leaders and managers share their best practices, trends, challenges and opportunities in supporting and enhancing the new generation of lifelong learners.

For Tecnológico de Monterrey, the process of lifelong learning is embedded in its everyday activities; it brings fulfillment and enriches lives. We strive to prepare for the changing times, new technologies, new markets and new generations who have more specific demands. Presented by the International Association for Continuing Engineering Education, this biennial conference has long supported the educators and administrators alike since its inception in 1979 in Mexico City, Mexico.

In the upcoming conference hosted by Tecnológico de Monterrey, we will be engaged in discussions and debates, presentations and workshops, and learning and networking for three and a half days.

> Agenda


Day 1
May 22
Workshops
Facilitated by international continuing education leaders, the workshops at the IACEE World Conferences focus on global CEE leadership development and CEE managers training with special emphasis on academic, operational and organizational excellence. Stay tuned for the titles of the workshops, as those become available. The workshops fee is separate from conference registration fee.

Day 2
May 23
Theme: The need of evolution in continuing educations models
On our first day of conference, we revisit the past. What started with simple education of the citizens of village or city, continuing education has evolved over the century. Most recently, with the advent of technology enhanced learning, Massive Open Online Courses, competency-based education and virtual community-based education, the term continuing education symbolizes reinvention, re-imagination and regeneration. Society doesn’t stand still, the world changes and so do we, and so does the world of continuing education. On this day, we will share our thoughts and engage in a discussion that will focus on why we need to change in our understanding of continuing education, what changes are happening now and what changes we expect to happen in future.

Day 3

May 24
Theme: Filling the gap between lifelong learning and the origanizational development
On the second day of the conference, we think of our current status of lifelong learning. Continuing education leaders long been involved in developing the next generation leaders and managers. Training and development in an organization is often connected with its business strategy, but does it prepare the employees for a lifetime of learning necessity? World changes fast, business strategy changes, context of our jobs changes, learning needs change and thus we have to prepare our employees for a continuous learning path. On this day, we will be concentrating on the strategic partnerships between industry and academia, our clients and customers, and how academia can help fill in the gaps between those organizations’ needs and the current knowledge of talents.

Day 4
May 25
Theme: How to keep up with the need of future lifelong learners
On the last day of the conference, we focus on the future and our learners. Over the years, we have given up slide rules, log tables and even calculators. We now learn from smart phones or tablets and from our interactions on social media. Our work is getting more automated, and to keep up with the requirements, we need to learn every day and be lifelong learners. But are we prepared for tomorrow’s learners? What do they need? How will they learn? What way should we deliver the learning? How will we assess their learning? How will we support the lifelong learning of global engineers? We hope that the attendees leave the conference with the knowledge and thoughts for the future and most importantly, how to keep with the ever-changing needs of the future lifelong learners.
