Engineering students become well-equipped with key theories, equations and knowledge during their time in classes, but experiential learning promotes questioning and conceptualizing based on their experience in a lab setting. The interactive nature of problem solving in teaching labs provide great opportunities for promoting creativity and innovation in real-world practical problems. The roundtable will encourage participants with variety of experience to exchange and promote strategies to enhance student’s strengths in promoting innovation, and creativity in ECE teaching labs
