Inclusive learning environments and equity-centred classrooms contribute to the development of students who are empowered and engaged. In turn, empowered students are better prepared and motivated to question the practices in their surrounding environment, in order to grow as professionals and improve society. Our speakers present several examples and strategies for cultivating student empowerment and engagement in the engineering classroom.

Homero Murzi (Virginia Tech, USA): Culturally Relevant Pedagogy - Amplifying Students' Voices in the Classroom
Siara Isaac (EPFL, Switzerland): Practical strategies for increasing equity in project teams: skills for students
Nathan Amanquah (Asheshi University, Ghana): tbc
Karolina Doulougeri (TU Eindhoven, Netherlands): Empowering engineering students to become self-regulated learners
