Abstract: The Profession of Engineering Education: Advancing Teaching, Research and Careers Engineering education is in a dynamic period of change, with growth in the adoption of a range of teaching methods and technologies, evolving institutional directives on research and research funding, and the increasing understanding in the Australasian community that engineering education is becoming both an academic discipline and a career path unto itself. The 2012 AAEE Conference is embracing this changing environment through a strong engagement with three essential components: our relationships to teaching, engineering education research, and professional pathways. Creating an atmosphere of collaboration and innovation, the conference will offer traditional paper sessions, a variety of workshops, and Master Classes facilitated by recognised experts - all with the focus of building participants' knowledge and skills in their chosen profession.
