ECEDHA + HKN = recipe for success. Few organizations have the synergy and alignment like ECEDHA and HKN. This Town Hall will present several case studies of successful partnerships, highlight the service component of HKN, and how Department Heads can achieve their objectives for student success and outreach in their campus communities.

NEXT WEEK: ECE Webinar - Applied Learning: Building Real-World Engineering Skills in an Online World
Brought to you by Coursera
March 11, 2021 at 1pm CST
Hands-on learning sits at the heart of engineering curricula. But with COVID-19 forcing learning to move online for the foreseeable future, how can universities ensure their students still get that level of engagement? Learners are craving an applied learning environment, and even starting to take it into their own hands with demand for technical bootcamps growing more than 12% year over year.

Join the Head of Coursera for Campus Americas, JP Moran, to explore how engineering departments are finding success in bringing those job-relevant skills to life online. Whether it is through guided labs or bootcamps, physical barriers don't need to stand in the way of your students' success.
