  • The workshop focuses on basic skills and includes seminars addressing the following topics:

    • Principles of effective teaching and learning
    • Learning styles
    • Communication skills
    • Learning objectives
    • Class organization and course organization
    • Development of interpersonal rapport with students
    • Teaching with technology

    The seminars are augmented by a series of demonstration classes - models of high-quality teaching, presented by ExCEEd faculty mentors. During the latter half of the course, participants apply what they have learned by preparing and teaching three actual classes in a small-group setting. This collaborative "learn by doing" format ensures that participants will make substantive improvements in their teaching skills by the end of the course.

    ASCE has successfully presented this workshop each summer for the past fourteen years. Faculty members across the country and around the world have benefited from this workshop.
