PAEE/ALE'2020 is an international conference on active learning in engineering education. It will be in Pattaya, Thailand's resort city on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand. Pattaya is about 118 kilometers (73 miles) from Suwannabhumi International Airport. Traveling to Pattaya is easy and convenient as there are plenty of caps, vans, and buses from the airport as well as Bangkok. Within two hours, you will arrive at a beautiful beach in Pattaya, a host to a beguiling range of attractions from ancient Thai traditions to modern adventures.


PAEE/ALE aims to be a place for teachers, researchers, and professionals specializing in Engineering Education to meet annually to exchange, share, and discuss ideas to enhance engineering education with Active Learning. Besides paper sessions, participants will experience active involvement in hands-on sessions, workshops, debates, round table, poster sessions, and student project sessions. The conference is the merging of two international events: the International Symposium on Project Approaches in Engineering Education (PAEE) organized by the PAEE association and the Department of Production and Systems of the University of Minho, Portugal, since 2009, and Active Learning in Engineering Education Workshop (ALE) organized by Active Learning in Engineering Education Network since 2000. PAEE/ALE'2020 will be the fifth collaboration of the two events.
