Abstract

Innovative teaching can be achieved through many strategies-leveraging what students already do, know about, and think about, relying on student engagement, self-regulated activity, and collaborative activity, and embedding teaching discourses in the values, practices, and institutions of the domain. Teaching innovation is especially critical and appropriate in computer and information sciences and engineering (CISE): Critical because of the need to enroll and graduate more students in these areas, and appropriate because these areas depend upon and consist of continuous innovation. A diverse set of innovative teaching practices across a CISE faculty, and pervasive across their courses and curricula, could evoke a faculty culture of teaching innovation.
