For Faculty

Engineering Faculty Teaching Forum

In collaboration with the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), the Engineering Faculty Teaching Forum brings together faculty from across the school to discuss teaching, consider practices and address challenges. These discussions take place approximately once a month, with each session focusing on a different aspect of our teaching mission. All faculty, from experienced to novice teachers, are invited to participate.

While all faculty are invited to participate, the sessions will be capped at 12 faculty to encourage open discussion. Only registered participants can attend. Please contact the Center for Teaching and Learning as soon as possible at ctl-help@sas.upenn.edu to sign up. All workshops will be held from 12:00 noon to 1:15 pm.
