Engineering Inclusive Teaching (EIT) is a professional development initiative for faculty providing research-based, Engineering-specific strategies for creating engaging, motivating educational environments that encourage the persistence and success of all students, especially women and other underrepresented students.
The EIT program created a portfolio of ten publicly accessible webinars showcasing the work of social science researchers and Engineering master teachers.
Topics covered include:
- Enhancing student self-efficacy
- Reducing stereotype-threat
- Understanding implicit bias
- Dealing with incivility and conflict in the classroom
- Mitigating social judgment and isolation
- Active learning
- Spatial Visualization Intervention to promote student equity
