"I couldn't have gotten tenure without good student evaluations, which CRLT-Engin helped make happen. Thanks!"
"Engineering education research activities are clearly flourishing at U-M, and your leadership is one of the major reasons why!"
"To me, one of the great things about CRLT-Engin is that it quietly and consistently gives faculty opportunities to reflect on and improve at teaching, such that the opportunities are there when faculty are ready for them."
Faculty testimonials such as these show the powerful impact that the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching in Engineering (CRLT-Engin) has had during the 10 years since its founding. Started in 2004 as a partnership between CRLT and the College of Engineering, CRLT-Engin has focused on supporting excellent teaching as well as furthering engineering education research at U-M. The center is staffed by consultants with expertise in both engineering and educational development, and it provides what one faculty member describes as "a space in which engineering education research is supported and celebrated"--and the insights of that research are translated into more effective teaching across the College. As another faculty member testifies, "On several occasions CRLT-Engin encouraged me to do what I thought would be impossible; I trusted their advice and implemented active learning in my large class. Now I do many things differently than before, with greater effectiveness and more enjoyment for students." Read more »
