Faculty Development program on active learning for engineering faculty in Chile: Sharing step Academic Article in Scopus uri icon

Abstract

  • © American Society for Engineering Education, 2018. This work in progress presents the structure and results of one part of an ongoing faculty development program in a large private university in Chile. The entire development program consists of six steps; in this paper, we focus on the fifth step, sharing, for two reasons: 1) some of the previous steps have been already presented and 2) the authors are interested in receiving feedback on the step in which sharing and spreading experiences on active learning implementations occur. For this presentation, we focus on the structure, materials shared and products that resulted from the 2-day workshop, the fifth step of the program. All participants work collaboratively in small groups, by the engineering subject, to design an active learning activity that will challenge students and convey the learning objectives of the course/unit selected. In this workshop, there were about 80 participants, 20 of those had continually participated in the previous steps. The authors are interested in receiving feedback on the program, particularly of the step in which sharing and spreading experiences on active learning implementations occur.
