ExCEEd Teaching Workshop

  • Important Update

    With concerns over the continued spread of COVID-19 and the concern for the health of our members, guest and staff, it’s with deep regret that we must cancel the 2020 ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop.

    Over the past few weeks, the ASCE leadership and staff have been monitoring worldwide developments related to COVID-19. With many countries and regions recommending self-quarantine and many institutions strongly advising staff, faculty and students to restrict travel, we know it’s no longer practical nor ethical to continue with our workshops.

    This cancellation creates a huge void for those that support the ExCEEd Program. The Committee on Faculty Development (CFD) recognizes this void but also sees it as an opportunity for new development. In our survey to participants, we asked if you would be interested in an alternative virtual ExCEEd-like offering. Many of you responded positively. So, with that, CFD is developing a new virtual ExCEEd program. This program will serve as an alternative to the ExCEEd Teaching Workshop, not a replacement.

    ExCEEd Community Exchange

    The ExCEEd Community Exchange is a series of 90 minute virtual sessions with short presentations from ExCEEd Mentors and Assistant Mentors and round table discussions with participants. Sessions include short (~5 min.) presentations followed by discussions amongst presenters and participants. Various topics, including virtual, in-person, and hybrid teaching environments.

    ExCEEd Teaching Workshop

    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 nineteen years.  Faculty members across the country and around the world have benefited from this workshop.

    Workshop learning objectives:

    • Explain what constitutes effective teaching.
    • Apply learning style models to the organization and conduct of a class.
    • Use Classroom Assessment Techniques to assess student learning.
    • Organize a class.
    • Deliver classroom instruction.
    • Assess a class from a student’s perspective.
    • Self-assess your own class.


    Details for the 2021 workshop will be available soon. 


    Applicants who are accepted to an ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop will be named "ExCEEd Teaching Fellows." 


    Due to the cancellation of ExCEEd 2020, we will not be accepting new application for ExCEEd 2021.

    ExCEEd II

    The ExCEEd Teaching Workshop II is a one and a half day practicum that includes: a refresher to the ExCEEd model, teaching practice, advanced topics on teaching and learning, and integrated discussion activities. This is an excellent opportunity or ExCEEd graduates to practice, improve, and expand their teaching skills with other like-minded colleagues. In addition, the workshop will include seminars and activities addressing topics such as the following:

    • ExCEEd I review
    • Expert novice learning principles
    • Creating and managing student teams
    • Large classroom techniques
    • Difficult students
    • Project based learning and design
    • Distance learning practices

    These seminars are augmented by a demonstration class presented by an ExCEEd faculty mentor that models high-quality teaching and new techniques. Participants will teach two practice classes and receive constructive feedback from an xCEEd faculty mentor and team members. Classes will be videotaped so that participants can more effectively assess their own performance. This ExCEEd refresher will enable faculty to continue improving their teaching skills, building their confidence and poise, and enhancing their self-assessment skills necessary for continued long-term development.

    The ExCEEd Teaching Workshop II is open to any faculty member who has attended a previous ExCEEd Teaching Workshop and strives to be a better teacher.

    Participant Qualifications:

    • Be a graduate of the ExCEEd Teaching Workshop;
    • Be currently employed by a two-year or four-year institution of higher learning;
