2014 ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshops:
Florida Gulf Coast University, June 22-27, 2014
United States Military Academy, July 20-25, 2014
The ExCEEd Teaching Workshop is a six-day practicum that provides engineering educators with an opportunity to improve their teaching abilities. 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
- Classroom assessment techniques
These 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.
Applicants who are accepted to an ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop will be named "ExCEEd 2014 Teaching Fellows." The entire workshop registration fee is $425.*
The ExCEEd Teaching Workshop is funded by a generous grant from the ASCE Foundation.
*The workshop costs $2,500 per participant to conduct. ASCE is investing $2,075 in each participant as a fellowship. Non ASCE Members may attend at the registration fee of $2,500.
