The American Society of Civil Engineering's Excellence in Civil Engineering Education (ExCEEd) Teaching Workshop has been delivered each year since 1999 with great success and broad recognition. The elements of the workshop are practical and promote best practices in classroom instruction. The workshop was modified for delivery at a public polytechnic institution to faculty in disciplines as diverse as computer science, the humanities, and dental hygiene. The contents of the ExCEEd workshop as well as its structural practices translate well to the institutional level and lay the groundwork for a sustainable teaching certificate program, an institutional teaching model, and formalized faculty teaching assessment and peer observation programs. This paper will describe and document the successes and challenges of the institutional workshop as well as the modifications made from the ExCEEd materials and format.
