Title: Eminent engineers feature in new online learning centre

Video interviews featuring some of Australias
most eminent engineers will feature as part of
the launch this month of an innovative online
service designed to help engineering
professionals develop their skills anywhere, at
any time.

The site offers hundreds short courses, technical
presentations, recorded webinars, case studies,
videos and articles that members of the
engineering team can access online, no matter
where they are in Australia or overseas.

It also features specially commissioned video
interviews with 13 senior engineers who were in
the Australian Top 100 list of engineers.In the
interviews, the senior engineers give personal
insights and tips on how they built their careers
in engineering and management.

EOL represents a completely new way for
engineering professionals to develop their skills
and undertake continuing professional development
(CPD) and is believed to be a world-first in
catering for all engineering specialisations.

The CEO of Engineers Australia, Stephen Durkin,
said that one of the aims of the website is to
focus Engineers Australia as a global centre of
engineering expertise and learning.EOL will
provide greater collaboration between research
facilities and industry, allowing engineering
professionals to further their skills
conveniently - online, he said.

Actively investing in advancing engineering
education and performance is key, if Australia is
going to compete in a global economy. As part of
that, wed like engineering professionals to
recognise and regard Engineers Australia as being
the global home, or first port of call, for their
ongoing learning and continuous professional
development.

According to Ann Ellis, the Group General Manager
of Engineering Education Australia, EOL is about
giving people more options to develop their
professional skills, because people learn in
different ways.

Within Engineers Australia given that more
than 50 of members are aged under 35 theyre
less inclined to be coming along to courses in
the way that people might have done in the past,
so weve got to cater for them, she says.

Being online, EOL certainly fits in with what
they want. Its about better meeting the needs of
peoples different learning styles.According
to EOLs Project Manager Iain Polley, the website
is part of the global shift to web-based learning
and development.

Many organisations are moving this way, with
affordable online learning becoming the number
one form of learning in most internal learning
and development strategies and programs, he
says.EOL represents a big shift to
access-based learning, which is moving away from
event-based, or attendance-based, learning.

The other point is that its continuous
learning. With things happening so quickly these
days, learning is taking place in far shorter
cycles.So you need knowledge quickly and you
need to know where to get it thats why we
think EOL will be a useful tool for all engineers.

We believe its something they should have as
their professional kitbag.Polley says EOL
will not be replacing the traditional
face-to-face courses offered by Engineering
Education Australia.

What were doing is making our face-to-face
sessions richer through the introduction of EOL,
and thats where the blended (mixed) learning
comes in, he saysFor example, the Introduction
to Project Management program offered by EEA used
to require people to attend a workshop for a
total of four days.

Its now going to consist of online modules and a
one-day (face-to-face) session.So instead of
four days of face-to-face training, engineers
will spend one day away from their office but
theyll do the other five modules online, at
times that suit them, says Polley.

Our approach will be to still use face-to-face
learning for heightened or rich learning, as we
call it, where youve got to get together and
talk with others to solve problems.That way,
by integrating both learning styles, youre much
more cost-efficient and effective.

The EOL website will initially offer some
500-plus learning resources and the idea is to
offer general, as well as technical topics, so
that every visit to the site will be useful for
engineers.Our plan at this stage is to add
something like 10 or 20 topics a week and to keep
doing that, Polley says.

This will eventually include hundreds of video
recordings of technical presentations made by
Engineers Australia over the past year or two
which will now become much more accessible.
