Professional Development

46th Annual Frontiers in Education Conference

Consistent with its mission, the FIE Conference series continues to offer professional development opportunities for engineering educators, researchers and administrators. This year’s conference offers a wide variety of opportunities: Plan to attend!

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Full-Day Workshops:

Evidence Based Teaching: Principles and Practice (IEEE-CS)

This workshop provides an overview of relevant research literature, and provides participants with hands on advice on choice of research approaches, data collection methods, and analysis techniques in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Engineering. Participants receive IEEE-CS certificate of participation and PDUs earned.

Dr. Arnold Pears and Dr. John Heywood


Designing an Engineering Recovery Course Using Process Education (Pacific Crest)

This workshop will help colleges turn things around for engineering students who have failed. Instead of sending out dismissal letters, challenge these students to prove they want to continue by obtaining an “A” in a course titled Achieving Academic Success.
