Civil and Environmental Engineering Assistant Professor Neda Masoud has been selected as a 2018 ExCEEd Teaching Fellow.
The ExCEEd Teaching Workshop is a faculty development program that is sponsored and organized by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
Masoud was chosen to receive a fellowship for the August 5-10, 2018 teaching workshop held at Florida Gulf Coast University. This six-day workshop consists of an integrated program of seminars, demonstrations and labs. Subjects covered include effective teaching, applying learning style models, using classroom assessment techniques, formulating learning objectives and self-assessment.
During the latter half of the ExCEEd Teaching Workshop, participants apply what they have learned by preparing and teaching three classes in a small-group setting. This collaborative “learn by doing” format ensures that participants will make substantive improvements in their teaching skills by the end of the course.
Masoud’s research interests are centered around applications of operations research in transportation, with a focus on surface transportation. Courses she offers include CEE 554: Data Mining in Transportation and CEE 557: Large-scale Transportation Systems Optimization.
