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.


University of Michigan Ph.D. and M.S. Programs Engineering Education Research: Prospective Student Open House 

We are excited to announce that the University of Michigan has just launched a brand new graduate program in Engineering Education Research (EER). As you might know, EER is an emerging field in which scholars use methods from education and social sciences to study issues relevant in engineering education such as supporting faculty as they adopt more student-centered teaching approaches, using classroom technology to improve students' understanding of foundational engineering concepts, or comparing the approaches used by expert and novice designers as they solve engineering problems.


The University of Michigan's EER program represents a unique, interdisciplinary model. Several tenure-line EER faculty are embedded within the traditional engineering departments, while EER graduate students are part of a college-wide program. This allows the EER faculty and their research to be well-integrated with the traditional engineering disciplines, and it provides students a better opportunity to engage in innovative research and make scholarly contributions to the engineering education community. An EER graduate degree will provide students with career opportunities in academia, nonprofit organizations, and industry. More information about the program is available at our EER website (https://eer.engin.umich.edu/)


We will be hosting an EER Prospective Student Open House on Monday October 22, 2018, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm in Ann Arbor, MI (see attached flyer). Students from all institutions are invited to attend. Participants will meet with faculty, postdocs, and graduate students, tour the beautiful University of Michigan campus and EER lab spaces, and learn about career opportunities as a UM graduate in this field. Note that applicants to the EER graduate program must have Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in a traditional engineering discipline.


Please register to attend at this open house registration site, and please forward this link to any friends who may be interested. A limited number of travel grants are available to offset the costs of traveling to Ann Arbor, so please register soon. Email us for more information at eerprogram@umich.edu


Can't make it to the open house but interested in applying? Visit the EER website to learn more about the graduate program. We hope you will consider UM as you decide to pursue your graduate studies in engineering education.


Georgia Tech/NSF Summit Scalable Advanced Learning Ecosystems (SALE) 

Please save the date for a National Science Foundation-funded summit, Scalable Advanced Learning Ecosystems (SALE), to be hosted at The Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta on November 29-30, 2018.


This event will bring together leaders in higher education and educational technology from across the globe to brainstorm and strategize creating cost-effective, sustainable, and scalable educational environments, or, SALE -- Scalable Advanced Learning Ecosystems. 


This two-day summit will be hosted at the Global Learning Center (GLC) on Georgia Tech’s campus and will feature several invited speakers, who will facilitate conversations on  personalized learning systems, intelligent tutoring systems, immersive learning environments, and data mining and learning analytics. The goal will be to craft a collective vision for institutions to combine these technologies with considerations for student engagement, research, and business models that that make up SALEs.


The SALE Summit call is open but has limited spots for participation. Please stay tuned for our call for participant proposals.


We look forward to exploring the future of learning with you. For questions, contact Yakut Gazi (yakut@gatech.edu).



Jewish National Foundation Faculty Fellowship in Israel 

Winter and Summer Annually


The Faculty Fellowship Program in Israel is a competitive academic fellowship that invites full-time university and college faculty members to apply to participate in an all-expenses-paid academic trip to Israel. The Program seeks to link scholars from diverse disciplines with their Israeli counterparts at major institutions for the purpose of initiating exchanges and collaborations.
