5 – 8 December 2021 – Perth, Australia

Our biennial Research in Engineering Education Symposium (REES), previously called the International Conference on Research in Engineering Education (ICREE), is our signature event providing a forum to share, discuss, disseminate, and propagate high-quality research and best practices through the global Engineering Education Research community. The first REES meeting was sponsored by the US National Science Foundation, the Journal of Engineering Education and the American Society for Engineering Education. In 2015, REES began presenting The Duncan Fraser Award  to the best student-authored paper.
