Develop Critical Teaching Skills
Teaching is an ever-evolving discipline. We have award winning teachers that are pushing the boundaries of engineering education.
“College teaching may be the only skilled profession for which no preparation or training is provided or required. You get a Ph.D., join a faculty, they show you your office, and then tell you ‘By the way, you’re teaching 205 next semester. See you later.’ The result is the consistent use of teaching techniques that have repeatedly been shown to be ineffective at promoting learning.”
