This Brown Bag series of talks will highlight interesting teaching innovations at Penn State. The goal is to help further build a community of instructors who are interested in improving learning by their students. All are welcome.

For over the last 25 years, the Leonhard Center for the Enhancement of Engineering Education has supported many projects to encourage more innovative engineering education. While past projects focused on multi-faculty, department-level projects, two years ago the Engineering Education Innovation Academy was started for individual faculty. The academy begins with a two-day, interactive workshop grounded in best practices in instructional design and assessment and that they are based on evidence-based instructional practices. Following the workshop, faculty members continue work to complete their educational and assessment plans. To date, 12 faculty have participated in the program. Faculty projects varied and were conceptualized by the faculty needs in their classroom.
