What is CEEDA?

The Collaborative Engineering Education in the Digital Age website showcases examples of global best practice in collaborative and/or project-based engineering learning that are partially or wholly delivered online.  It forms one element of a wider study looking at the lessons learnt from the current period of ‘emergency teaching’ and how this might impact the trajectory of engineering education in the future.
