EIT in the WSKC

Gretal Leibnitz, Co-PI/Project Director, EIT Project

"As a small NSF-funded project, EIT is leveraging the WSKC to help us reach a broad audience of engineering faculty interested in crafting inclusive learning environments."

About EIT

 
Research shows that many of today's women engineering students are among the best-prepared and most-qualified of their peers; however, many leave engineering because they experience the learning environment as unwelcoming and demotivating. 
 
Engineering Inclusive Teaching (EIT), led by Women in Engineering ProActive Network (WEPAN.org) and funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF.gov, HRD GSE #1203164), invites interested Engineering faculty to participate in a professional development opportunity to learn strategies for creating engaging and motivating engineering educational environments that especially encourage the persistence—and success of—women and other underrepresented students, with benefits for all students!

 

Interested faculty can participate in the following ways:

  • Join our community of practice to engage in discussion on promising and emerging practices, have access to supportive documents and resources, and be the first to learn about EIT webinars and actions papers
  • Engage in "How to" Webinars showcasing the work of social science researchers and Engineering master teachers. We foresee a series of 8 – 10 webinars, with question and answer opportunity built in.
  • Incorporate suggestions from the Action Papers into daily teaching practices. 

 

Spread the Word about EIT

 

Please pass along this brochure to those who you think would be interested in participating! The program is FREE and promises to provide numerous practical tips and applications for creating and enhancing an inclusive Engineering learning environment.
