We know students are engaged and motivated when they are challenged with real-world and real-time projects in which to apply their learning.
The ‘Challenge:Amplified’ Program is built for 2nd – 5th year courses, structured to incorporate the strengths of the EWB Challenge 1st year program with consideration of the requirements of smaller class sizes and later-year units.
EWB uses our real-time work in Cambodia, Vanuatu, and Timor-Leste to scope relevant project briefs which are ready to be incorporated into curriculum. EWB brings the knowledge, experience, and resources which compliments, rather than replicates, what a course coordinator is able to develop on their own.
By working with the Challenge: Amplified program, academics are able to incorporate real-world sociotechnical projects and learning resources into all stages of a university degree program.
Engaging with Challenge:Amplified program provides academics:
a professionally scoped, real-world and real-time project brief that will challenge and motivate students
Immersive learning content that will enable your students to have a place-based experience without travelling
Live engagement with project stakeholders that will help students ground their learning and build professional skills
Access to a community of values-aligned engineering educators and socio-technical engineering teaching resources
Standard pricing is on a per course basis, however opportunities for discounted or pilot rates are available to university partners, to be discussed as part of an annual partnership renewal process and mid-year check-in meeting.
Example project topic areas include:
Water, Sanitation, Hygiene: ‘Nature-based solutions for drainage and WASH access in peri-urban Vanuatu’
Waste management: ‘Waste incinerator design for medical waste from health centres’
Structures: ‘Low-cost footbridge design for school access in rural Vanuatu’
EWB Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to them, their cultures and their land; to Elders both past and present; and to emerging leaders. We recognise that the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people never ceded sovereignty of what we call Australia.
