The 6th edition of the Special Track Talking about Teaching (TaT’17) within IGIP2017 aims to promote the discussion on Engineering Education by providing an opportunity for debating and sharing ideas, approaches, developments and experiences. The organizers of TaT’17 also invite working group members of the International Society for Engineering Pedagogy (IGIP) to join this Special Track in line with the mission of IGIP and to present results of their group activities in a collaborative approach. The proposed topics are concerned not only with resources in engineering education (EE) and with the constant demand on the use of technology and on its present role, but also with the effectiveness of knowledge in order to guaranty simultaneously the diversity and inclusion in EE, teachers’ professional development, the perspective of EE oriented for STEM and the spirit of engineering leadership in society.
