Bootcamp Supports Future Engineering Leaders

In January, selected doctoral students participated in the Future Leaders of Engineering Teaching Fellows Boot Camp. The weeklong boot camp is part of a broader Tufts program supported by the National Science Foundation. These Engineering Teaching Fellows will become future leaders in our academic communities, promoting use of appropriate teaching pedagogies that create an inclusive classroom environment. Not only will they be excellent researchers in their chosen discipline area, they will also be excellent teachers that utilize learner-centered techniques to convey the excitement and potential of engineering to students.
