ExCEEd

  • The ExCEEd Teaching Workshop is a six-day practicum that provides engineering educators with an opportunity to improve their teaching abilities. ASCE has successfully presented this workshop each summer for the past fifteen years. Faculty members across the country and around the world have benefited from this workshop.


  • 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

    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.

    Applicants who are accepted to an ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop will be named "ExCEEd 2015 Teaching Fellows." The entire workshop registration fee is $595.*

    The Mini-ExCEEd Teaching Workshop

    The Mini-ExCEEd Teaching Workshop is a day and a half condensed version of the full ExCEEd Teaching Workshop.  However, the Mini-ExCEEd is not a replacement for the full workshop.  The Mini-ExCEEd Workshop introduces faculty members of all disciplines to the ExCEEd Teaching Model.  

    Twenty-four faculty members can be accommodated at the Mini-ExCEEd Workshop with two master teachers giving the seminars.  

    The Mini-ExCEEd Workshop is a by request program and is based on availability
