The workshop will be held in two parts; the first will be an online-only event on July 18 and 19, and the second will be a face-to-face event held at ACI Headquarters on July 26 and 27. Attendees have the option to register for both the virtual and in-person portions, or the virtual portion only.
The Professors’ Workshop is designed to provide instructors in civil engineering, architecture, architectural engineering, materials science, and construction management programs the latest tools and teaching techniques to effectively engage students in courses that cover structural concrete design, construction, materials, and pavements. Prominent, nationally known faculty and industry representatives will present information and resources to assist professors in preparing or fine-tuning their concrete-related courses. The synchronous online portion of the workshop will focus on providing teaching resources that are suited for both online and face-to-face formats. Although the online portion will focus on providing resources, interactive online sessions are also planned to facilitate discussion and exchange ideas.
The face-to-face sessions at ACI HQ will be highly interactive. Attendees will participate in numerous breakout sessions to develop course goals, student learning objectives in the context of topical modules, instructional materials, laboratory activities, and assessments. Breakout sessions will be guided by the Professors’ Workshop faculty with plenty of opportunity for exchanging teaching ideas with faculty and fellow attendees. Attendees will receive a certificate of participation for attending the workshop.
