The College of Engineering Education Innovation Committee (EIC) promotes the development and adoption of evidence-based teaching and learning methods in Engineering at UW-Madison. Full list of responsibilities.
The Education Innovation Committee (EIC) invites high-impact, innovative proposals that improve the College of Engineering (COE) undergraduate student educational experience.
In addition, we host various opportunities for college and university faculty and staff to share best practices and learn new strategies for enhancing teaching and learning. For example:
