International Symposium on Advances in Technology Education (ISATE) 2021
Aug 2021

ISATE 2021 was organised by the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Japan, five polytechnics from Singapore, and IVE Engineering, VTC, Hong Kong. Hosted by Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS), Finland, the Symposium provided a platform for educators and experts from higher-education institutions of engineering and technology worldwide to share their knowledge and experiences of practice-based engineering and nurture young people with the knowledge and skills required to create a better society.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ISATE 2021 was held online from 17 to 20 August 2021. This was the first ISATE organised outside Asia. Altogether, approximately 240 participants from eight countries/regions, namely Finland, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Mongolia, Northern Ireland, Singapore and The Netherlands, joined the Symposium. In line with the theme of “Educating Future Innovators”, VTC staff presented 12 papers and hosted two workshops on various topics during the event. In addition, Dr Daniel Yan, Academic Director (Engineering) of the VTC, delivered an Institutional Presentation entitled “Collaboration between Educational Institutions and Industries” to the participants.


Staff members’ experience at the Symposium was fruitful, as they leveraged the ISATE platform to deepen their relationships with overseas partners and exchange insights into VPET.
