The Teacher Engineering Education Program (TEEP) Certificate Program empowers teachers to bring hands-on engineering to their students.
The Teacher Engineering Education Program (TEEP) Certificate Program graduate courses are designed to build knowledge in engineering and expertise in teaching engineering. Participants enroll as learners in four graduate-level courses that are rigorous and engaging. Each course is worth four graduate credit hours, giving participants a total of 16 credit hours upon completion.
The TEEP program is modeled after Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach in-person, hands-on workshops, and courses. The courses aren't filled with lectures and multiple choice but with hands-on challenges, work with your own students, and discussions. For content courses, participants are shipped a kit of materials right to their door, and upload pictures and video of their engineering design solutions in an easy-to-use website. Pedagogy courses task participants with interviewing students, trying activities in their classrooms, and discussing readings. Weekly assignments are designed to work with busy schedules.
