Civil engineering faculty specializing in transportation engineering. Approximately 400 tenured/tenure-track faculty in the U.S. comprise this target audience, and an estimated 25% of them have 5 years or less experience in faculty positions.
The two‐day workshop and conference will provide an opportunity for transportation engineering faculty to work together to learn of best practices in engineering education, develop activities for their classes, and create or further develop their networks with other teaching faculty. Goals of the workshop include a dialogue on engineering education, both broadly and within transportation engineering, active engagement of workshop attendees in small groups to develop curricular material and course activities, and the ability to meet other people from across the nation facing the same issues and learn of successes as well as lessons learned from one another. These goals are best met with a workshop/conference rather than forms of distance learning and Internet‐based communication since the curriculum materials will be developed collaboratively at the workshop. The workshop organizers believe that development of persistent professional networks is best achieved through face‐to‐face interactions.
