The UH Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering hosted a teaching development event for faculty this month.

The Mini-ExCEEd Teaching Workshop, presented by American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), was a two-day series of seminars open to Cullen College of Engineering faculty that focused on innovative ways of conveying engineering concepts to students and being more successful in the classroom.

ASCE’s annual two-week training workshop, called Excellence in Civil Engineering Education, better known as ExCEEd, is presented each summer to selected faculty members from around the world. The Cullen College of Engineering coordinated with ASCE to bring a concentrated version of this training to the University of Houston, giving all Cullen College faculty members an opportunity to enhance their teaching abilities.

Workshop topics focused on strengthening skills in various areas such as effective teaching and learning styles, communication and building interpersonal rapport with students, class organization, teaching with technology, and classroom assessment techniques. Seminars were enhanced with demonstrations of high-quality teaching models, presented by ExCEEd faculty mentors.
