Understanding the Role of Self-efficacy: Professional Development for Busy Educators
In this publicly accessible and highly interactive webinar from the Engineering Inclusive Teaching (EIT) project, learn HOW to apply research-based, best-practice teaching strategies to create engaging, motivating educational environments that encourage the persistence and success of all students, with special emphasis on diverse women and minority men in engineering!
Self-efficacy is the belief that you can be successful at accomplishing your goal. Why is student self-efficacy important to engineering educators? How do educators encourage its development within specific learning environments? These are just some of the questions that will be answered by Drs Margaret Beier (Rice University) and Jack Lesko and Catherine Amelink (Virginia Tech). Learn about self-efficacy, its role in engineering learning environments, impacts on academic achievement and persistence in the face of difficulty, and ways to encourage its development in your students.
This webinar is relevant to all interested educators. Examples will be engineering specific.
