Welcome to teaching with the Office of Advanced Engineering Education! We thank you for taking the time to support our students and programs. Below is a list of helpful resources that will provide you with information about developing coursework and teaching with our office.

Please keep in touch with us and ask questions, we look forward to working with you moving forward!

New Faculty Resources

If faculty are teaching on campus, their classes will be held in one of the state of the art classrooms in the Siegel Learning Center, located in the J.M. Patterson Building on the College Park campus. Mr. Marty Ronnings is in charge and is able to arrange for a tour and introduction at your convenience. He should also be able to assist faculty with scheduling a practice lecture, if they so choose, and with scheduling webcasting times for prerecorded lectures. If faculty will need someone after business hours to pass along a message to their students, call DETS's Master Control Technical Staff at 301-405-4902. The DETS office has put together a handy page for faculty, to introduce faculty to the tools available.

If you are developing a course with us or need any desk copies for your course, please provide Ms. Brittani Berry with the textbook's title, author, year of publication, edition (if applicable), and ISBN number.

During the Fall and Spring Semesters, ENPM courses are held once a week, Monday through Thursday, generally in either the 4:00-6:40pm timeslot or the 7:00-9:40pm timeslot. During Summer semesters, ENPM courses are held either twice a week for eight weeks, Monday-Thursday from 6:00-8:40pm or once a week for twelve weeks, Monday-Thursday from 5:30-8:45pm. We would like to be aware ahead of time what days/times faculty have a preference for, in addition to what days/times they require. We will then do our best to accommodate needs and preferences within the confines of room availability and avoiding area content overlap as we complete the course scheduling process each semester.

We want to include your profile on our website, to that end please provide Ms. Brittani Berry with a brief bio, headshot and preferred contact information so that it can be added to our website.

This is a web based Learning Management System used by all faculty and students as the primary method of communication and material distribution. You can watch some Canvas training videos by clicking on this link. Ms. Gabby Barnhart is the administrator for Engineering, and she is happy to arrange for individual training and to answer questions about the system. You can reach her at gabby@umd.edu or book time to meet with her using http://gabby.youcanbook.me/.

The TLTC provides resources on getting started as faculty develop their courses and approach teaching it for the first time. They also provide workshops for continuing faculty throughout the year.

Teaching Resources

ENPM course syllabi are uploaded to the OAEE Course Schedule website so that they are available for the students to review as they decide on their enrollment for the upcoming semester. Please send syllabi to Ms. Brittani Berry when they are ready for the upcoming semester.
 
Please note that, we do not make updates to the syllabi links after the initial upload, unless it is prior to the add/drop deadline and there has been a major change to the curriculum as noted on the syllabus.

Please provide Ms. Brittani Berry with your course textbook list for the upcoming semester so students can begin gathering necessary materials.

We request that each instructor hold office hours for two hours per week. The office hours can be held in-person, via phone, or via a Zoom/Skype virtual setting. Please list your office hours on your syllabus.

Faculty are invited to use the OAEE Conference Room area for meetings with students or as an office area as they arrive/depart from campus on the evenings of their ENPM courses. Our office is open from 8:30am - 4:30pm each day, but faculty will be able to access the space at any time using their ID card. This access will be given on a per semester basis and OAEE will send an email out about this access before each semester requiring your response.
 
Please contact Brittani Berry to schedule conference room time during our business hours. After hours, the room functions on a first come, first serve basis.

Parking is free after 4:00pm in much of the Regent's Garage, located across the intersection from J.M. Patterson. You can find other parking options here, and other parking permit options here.

At the end of the semester, faculty will enter their final grades into the University of Maryland Electronic Grading System (UMEG) located here: https://www.umeg.umd.edu/
 
Grades are generally due 48 hours after the course's final exam. Absolute deadlines for grades are posted on the umeg.umd.edu site.

As part of the Middle States Assessment Plan for OAEE, we are evaluating our student's ability to demonstrate knowledge of advanced principles in engineering. To do this, we are asking that all instructors add a question to their final exam that is specifically tailored to demonstrate understanding of a fundamental principle in engineering. OAEE will send our a reminder email closer to the end of the term regarding this request.
