This paper considers the current role of the university lecturer in engineering education. It briefly describes how to be a good teacher and the elements that facilitate this task. A broad guide is offered on how to manage class dynamics given the new teaching challenges. The lecturer’s relationship with the new methodologies that impact on the training of engineers is discussed. Approaches are examined for incorporating these new methodologies into classes in an innovative way through student-centred teaching techniques. Finally, the emergence of online training as a new educational format is analysed and practical recommendations are made.
