Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This paper examines and reports on a five-stage framework for
lifelong learning in engineering education and practice. The paper
draws on the authors' experiences in their universities and working
with the local communities. The five stages are: Pre-employment
(undergraduate stage, including the need for continuously updated
CV); Early Employment; Mid-Career Employrnent; Later
Employment (usually at the more senior level of the employment and
preparing for up-skilling after retirement) and Post Employment
(retired). The paper discusses and justifies, for each of the different
stages, the appropriate activities such as involvement with
professional societies, updating, both in breadth and depth, technical
knowledge and soft skills, utilising SFIAplus or similar frameworks,
the use of webinars and MOOCs, also the changing role of mentors,
from mentee to mentor, throughout the stages. The involvement at
various stages of related voluntary activities such as "giving back" to
the profession are considered.
