A Training Process for Faculty Members in Collaborative Degree Programs: Design, Implementation and Feedback

Abstract

Collaborative degree programs in software engineering are becoming more common as universities try to expand their offering globally and leverage their knowledge and expertise.Faculty training program intended to help academics learn how to teach courses from collaborating institutions is a complicated undertaking considering the need to pass along course material, the ‘spirit’ of how the courses are taught and the quality standards to which they must adhere. Carnegie Mellon University developed a training process for teaching faculty members in its joint software engineering programs in India, Korea and Portugal. The process, its implementation and the feedback of using it with our overseas partners will be explored and described in detail.
