    The National Teaching College--Getting Your Faculty Off to the Best Start: New faculty members in engineering generally are not trained to teach. This impacts students as well as faculty who are often inadequately prepared to handle all of their responsibilities as new faculty members. How can you help new engineering faculty develop their teaching skills while balancing the other demands of their job? Consider The National Teaching College, a new program offered by the Academy for Excellence in Engineering Education (AE³). The National Teaching College builds on the success of AE³'s Teaching College, a personal development program that the University of Illinois Colleges of Engineering and Education have offered since 1993. This program helps new faculty get off to a fast and productive start and develop effective and efficient practices during their first years in academia. AE³'s Teaching College has improved instruction and helped new faculty learn to manage their responsibilities. You are invited to participate in this new three-phase National Teaching College program. As a participating institution, you will attend two informational work-shops in which you will be introduced to models of faculty development, and observe AE³'s Teaching College program first-hand in order to experience how a faculty development program can be implemented, the topics it addresses, and the impact it can have on new faculty. Throughout the program, you will bene-fit from networking with other participants as you develop and implement your program at your campus. Phase 1: Goals and Models Workshop - March 15-16, 2001 (at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign). Phase 2: Demonstration Workshop - August 6-8, 2001 (at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign). Phase 3: Implementation, Networking, and Support - 2001-02 Academic Year (at your home institution). Registration Information Workshop accommodations, meals, program registration, and materials will be provided free of charge to the first 20 institutions that apply. We encourage institutions to send pairs of participants to the workshops. Other applicants will be accepted based upon space availability with a registration fee of $1295 per institution. The National Teaching College is sponsored by the GE Fund. For registration information contact: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Conferences and Institutes at http://www.conted.uiuc.edu/ci; or call (217) 333-2888.
