It is my pleasure to invite all engineering faculty to “Time-Effective Tips to Improve Faculty-Student Interactions,” engineering education faculty development workshop. This workshop will teach practical approaches to improve student success and engagement that are easy to implement and don’t take much of your time. Carol Muller and ASU engineering faculty will lead this workshop.
Friday, Sept. 30, 10 a.m.–noon
Brickyard Room 660—Free parking available at the Brickyard for attendees.
RSVP to Collofello@asu.edu
Carol Muller is an experienced university administrator, educator and social entrepreneur, who has spent more than 30 years working in higher education across a wide range of responsibilities in areas of academic administration, faculty recruitment and development, strategic planning and budget development, external relations, corporate and foundation relations, admissions, student development, educational program development, and facilities program planning. She is the founder of MentorNet (www.MentorNet.net), a nonprofit, online, global mentoring network, and served as its executive from 1997 until 2008, and currently works as Department Manager for Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, the chief operating officer for the largest department in the School of Engineering. Among other responsibilities, she formerly served as Consulting Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University and Associate Dean for Administration for Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College.
A Fellow of the Association for Women in Science, Dr. Muller and her work have been recognized with other national awards, including the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring, and the Anita Borg Social Impact Award. She has authored and presented numerous papers, presentations and workshops, and has developed more than $10 million in grants from private foundations, corporations, and the federal government, contracts, and individual giving to support projects, programs, and fellowships. A graduate of Dartmouth College (1977), she earned master’s and Ph.D. degrees in education administration and policy analysis at Stanford University (1981, 1985).
The workshop is a result of our partnership with ENGAGE—an Extension Services Project funded by the National Science Foundation. The overarching goal of ENGAGE is to increase the capacity of engineering schools to retain undergraduate students by facilitating the implementation of research-based strategies to improve student day-to-day classroom and educational experience.
