Bio: Dr. Rania Hussein is an Associate Teaching Professor and the Founder and Director of the Remote Hub Lab (RHLab) at the University of Washington where her research focuses on remote engineering, digital twinning, and embedded systems to advance the integration of technology in healthcare and educational practices. She has been awarded the Innovative Program Award from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association (ECEDHA) in 2021, highlighting her leadership in developing cutting-edge educational initiatives through the establishment of the RHLab. Her efforts in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion contributed to the building and passing of the SB-5166 Bill into WA State law in 2019. The religious accommodation law requires post-secondary institutions to provide alternate exam accommodations for students due to religious observance. This accommodation became part of the syllabi of higher educational institutions in the State of WA. In 2023, Dr. Hussein received the IEEE Region 6 Outstanding Engineering Educator, Mentor, and Facilitator Award, recognizing her contributions to engineering education and the STEM field.

Title of the Talk: Equitable Access in Computer Science and Engineering Education: Embracing Technology for Inclusive and Experiential Learning

Abstract: In an era where technology continuously reshapes the boundaries of education, the role of an educator extends beyond imparting knowledge to inspiring change and fostering an inclusive environment where every student can thrive. With a commitment to making education accessible, inclusive, and adaptive to the evolving landscape of engineering and technology, the speaker leverages her experience in establishing the Remote Hub Lab (RHLab) to outline a forward-thinking vision for computer science and engineering education. This vision emphasizes leveraging digital twinning, remote engineering, and embedded systems to promote equitable access to education and experiential learning opportunities. By integrating these advanced technologies, the aim is to prepare students not only to excel academically but also to become innovative leaders capable of addressing the complex challenges of our world.
