PITT Future Faculty Development Program (PITT-FFDP)

PITT Future Faculty Development Program (PITT-FFDP, Oct. 25–27) is an expense-paid two-day program for doctoral and post-doctoral scholars from traditionally underrepresented groups (URG) in their STEM research fields, and who are interested in an academic career.  The program is designed to identify the scholars toward the end of their doctorate or post-doctorate programs but early in their beginning search for faculty career in the STEM field.


2018 National Effective Teaching Institutes

The 35th National Effective Teaching Institute (NETI-1) will be held August 1st- 3rd, 2018, at the Hilton Double Tree Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. For faculty with more teaching experience, an advanced teaching workshop (NETI-2) will be offered June 28th -29th, 2018 at the Hilton in Salt Lake City, UT.  Drs. Susan Lord, Matt Ohland, and Michael Prince will lead each workshop. The previous NETI programs have reached over 1500 participants from 250 different schools and participant evaluations have been overwhelmingly positive. 


Participants for each NETI workshop will include 50 faculty members from all branches of engineering and engineering technology. The registration fee for the 3-day NETI-1 is $1150 per participant and for the 2-day NETI-2 is $1050.  This fee covers organization and presentation costs, participant notebooks, breakfasts, lunches, and breaks. Attendees' institutions are expected to cover the participants' expenses for transportation, lodging, and one meal per day.  NETI-1 focuses on instructional objectives, active and inductive teaching methods, motivating students, creating a more inclusive classroom, crisis clinics and assessment.  NETI-2 candidates should be experienced with using the basic active learning techniques covered in NETI-1 and be ready to adopt more challenging techniques such as cooperative and problem-based learning.  In general, these will be faculty with more teaching experience, but instructors at all age and career levels are welcome at either workshop, so long as they have the appropriate background. 


To obtain either workshop registration form, please contact Heather Deale at ASEE headquarters via email (h.deale@asee.org).  For questions about workshop content, please contact Dr. Michael Prince at prince@bucknell.edu

ASEE Community Engagement Division - Day of Service 

The Community Engagement Division (CED) is once again organizing a day of service on the Saturday before the ASEE Annual Conference for participants to actively learn about community engagement, give back to our host city, and have some fun with colleagues from around the country. In the past three years, we have helped construct a community garden in Seattle, build a playground in Baton Rouge, and adapted toys for differently abled children in Columbus.  This year, the CED is partnering with the Bennion Community Service Center at the University of Utah to engage with the Salt Lake community on two projects, one indoors and one outdoors, you can choose which fits you best. Stay tuned for the exact details from our partners, which will be updated on the ASEE conference website as soon as possible.


We hope you can join us the Saturday before the conference, June 23rd from 12-4pm. The cost is only $25 with transportation and snacks included, and you can sign up through the ASEE conference website (link to service project registration) along with your general registration.


Thank you for considering adding this experience and stepping up to serve through what is sure to be a rewarding afternoon. Please invite your colleagues to join you and add this event to their ASEE calendars. 


For more information and questions about the service project, contact Greg Rulifson (grulifson@mines.edu). For more information about the Community Engagement division, contact James Huff (2018 Program Chair) or Megan Kenny-Feister (2019 Program Chair).
