RAEng - The Power of practical learning in education

12th May 2022 5:30 pm

As part of the Royal Academy of Engineering’s active work to build an inclusive education system for engineers, join us at the live panel discussion of the report: ‘Reimagining practical learning in secondary schools: A review of the evidence’.

The Academy is marking the publication of this research in collaboration with Professor Bill Lucas and Janet Hanson, from the Centre for Real-World Learning at the University of Winchester.

Despite growing recognition of its contribution to the development of critical engineering skills, practical learning still tends to be seen as a lesser alternative to academic learning, remaining misunderstood and underappreciated. This equips educators with restrictive tools that fail to not only build competent engineers, but also to engage the entire talent pool.

This research serves as the first step to tackle practical learning’s mischaracterisation, reach beyond unhelpful educational binaries and reimagine the future of whole learning.
