Students frequently cite poor teaching as a reason for leaving a STEM major. To remedy this situation, our center custom designed a workshop series for new faculty in the College of Engineering & Computing. This presentation will guide participants through the design and development process of a faculty development series addressing quality teaching to improve student retention. Participants will have the opportunity to draft a workshop agenda applicable to their university context.  While this workshop was custom designed for a STEM college, the design, content and teaching strategies incorporated apply to any discipline interested in “good” teaching.
