The Second Annual South Alabama Conference on Teaching and Learning (CoTL) was held May 14-15 on the campus of The University of South Alabama. This two-day conference provided a great opportunity to discuss, in greater detail, how we teach college students.


Dr. Andy Whelton (my good friend and colleague) and I provided a presentation in Session IV: Leadership & Mentoring about our experience co-teaching the inaugural Field Analysis and Sampling Techniques in Civil Engineering (FAST CE) in Fall 2011. Click on the image at right for a PDF copy of the presentation slides (less my witty commentary), and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions or comments about our course, the outcomes, or our lessons learned.
