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

The Engineering Inclusive Teaching (EIT) project, led by WEPAN and funded by the National Science Foundation (HRD GSE #1203164), is a unique faculty professional development program that helps educators craft inclusive engineering learning environments.

Engage with convenient live and recorded EIT webinars and action check-lists that:

  • Distill best-practice research findings from social scientists.
  • Share practical advice from master engineering educators.
  • Access time-effective resources tailored to engineering faculty.
EIT distills research-based best practices for creating inclusive learning environments and translates findings into specific actions for busy engineering educators. Faculty and students alike will reap the benefits of a well-crafted inclusive learning environment.

Get started today in the following ways:
  • Sign-up to receive EIT information and timely updates on upcoming webinars and action checklists.
  • Engage in "how to" webinars showcasing the work of social science researchers and engineering master teachers. We foresee a series of 10 – 12 webinars, with complementary support resources.
  • Incorporate suggestions from the action checklists into daily teaching practices.
