A faculty member new to Arizona State University confronts many demands with respect to teaching, research, and service. Maximizing outcomes and productivity in any of these areas is a critically important component of building a successful academic career at the University.
This peer exchange workshop will focus on the teaching component of the academic position. Faculty from across the Schools of Engineering will share their own experiences and classroom challenges and participate in an open forum discussion of issues relevant to all new faculty members.
Topics that may be discussed include:
- Evaluating students using efficient and fair grading techniques that do not take over your life.
- Low overhead teaching strategies.
- Getting classroom spaces that work with your teaching style.
- Getting classroom support (TAs, graders, UGTAs) and making the most of their contribution.
- Developing a new course from gaining administrative support to the logistics of implementation.
- Inquiry-based learning in large classes.
- Practical aspects of integrating newer paradigms into your teaching strategy (online education, computer-intensive classes, flipped classrooms, etc.).
- Other topics as requested by the attendees.
