NETI 1 (Basic)

NETI 1 January 2022 Online

NETI has been offering courses since 1991, reaching nearly 2500 participants from over 350 different institutions. We are particularly thankful that we have been able to continue to offer these valuable workshops online in order to meet the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

For January 2022, we are offering NETI-1 Basic in two 2-day segments which, when combined, will result in covering the content we teach in our three day face to face workshops. We hope that by May 2022, we will be able to resume in person workshop format. Please scroll to the bottom of the page to register for NETI 1A and 1B.

NETI 1 Basic Face to Face Format

The basic National Effective Teaching Institute (NETI-1) is a three-day workshop given twice a year. It is intended to give the participants information and some hands-on practice in the elements of effective teaching—course planning, lecturing, active learning, assessment of learning, and dealing with a variety of problems that commonly arise in the life of a faculty member. The workshop is also intended to provide new faculty with tips on getting their careers off to a good start and experienced faculty with instructional materials and methods that they can use in faculty development and new faculty mentoring programs on their own campuses. Experienced faculty who are nominated should therefore be among the better teachers on their campuses, as opposed to teachers having problems and seeking assistance. In a major survey of NETI-1 alumni, a significant number of past participants reported that the workshop had a positive effect on both their students’ learning and their student evaluations.

Every January and May, engineering deans are invited to nominate up to two faculty members from their campuses. Nominees should have at least one semester of teaching experience prior to attending. Nominations are accepted on a first-come first-served basis up to a maximum of 50. The deans are expected to pay their nominees’ expenses, which include travel, subsistence, and the $1,150 NETI-1 registration fee. Click to see a NETI-1 outline.
