Current developments in information and communication technology (ICT) can be successfully embedded in the pedagogical design of engineering laboratories. This can open new horizons in the learning experience and widen participation. The development of virtual and remote laboratories are examples of embedding modern ICT in education which are becoming more and more widely accepted in engineering education. This workshop aims to corroborate the impact of virtual and remote laboratories on the development of knowledge and transferable skills in engineering students. The workshop will commence with introductions to the concepts of remote and virtual laboratories describing the pedagogical framework that supports the applications of these technologies to traditional and nontraditional students
