The NETI-1 (Basic) workshop is typically offered twice a year and is offered in both online and face to face formats. This workshop provides instruction and hands-on practice in the elements of effective teaching—motivating students, course planning, lecturing, active learning, inclusive teaching, assessment of learning, and dealing with a variety of problems that commonly arise in the life of a faculty member. The workshop provides new faculty with tips on getting their careers off to a good start while more experienced faculty are given the opportunity to explore advanced topics of their choosing.  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.
