Pillar 1—Strategies: Top Strategies for the Implementation UBC/TIKAT Ecosystem in Engineering Schools

Davey et al. (2011) identified the following top impactful strategies for supporting

the implementation of UBC/TIKAT ecosystem (arranged by the order of impact

and slightly modified to fit engineering colleges context):

  • 1. Pillar 1. Strategy 1: The inclusion of TIKAT (UBC) as part of the assessment of engineering academic work and performance;
  • 2. Pillar 1. Strategy 2: The dedication of resources (including funding) to support UBC/TIKAT;
  • 3. Pillar 1. Strategy 3: The provision of incentives for academics to encourage UBC/TIKAT;
  • 4. Pillar 1. Strategy 4: The internal promotion of UBC/TIKAT in the college;
  • 5. Pillar 1. Strategy 5: The external promotion of UBC/TIKAT with external partners;
  • 6. Pillar 1. Strategy 6: A documented vision/mission embracing UBC/TIKAT in the college new strategy;
  • 7. Pillar 1. Strategy 7: Building a holistic strategy for UBC/TIKAT in the college strategy.

Pillar 2—Structure and Approaches: Top Structures and Approaches for the Implementation of UBC/TIKAT Ecosystem in Engineering Schools
