MACH is an active workshop for educators presented by Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, the nation’s top-ranked undergraduate engineering college where we have a student-centered philosophy of education.
MACH is designed for faculty, staff, administrators and graduate students passionate about higher education. We encourage you to come with challenges, projects and ideas.
You’ll leave with skills, strategies and connections. We strongly recommend you attend in teams of two to four people. Individuals may also apply.
The three-day MACH workshop is organized around three themes: Knowing Yourself, Cultivating an Allied Community of Colleagues, and Making Change Happen on Campus.
We first help participants focus on skills and change aspects that an individual faculty member can control, including interactions with students and colleagues. With this foundation, we then help participants identify the unique opportunities and constraints of their individual academic environments, and share strategies for expanding and implementing visions of academic change. Our emphasis on self-awareness and community-building is drawn from our experiences implementing academic changes, small and large.
MACH's foundation is an active, participant-focused format that provides flexibility to tailor the activities to the interest of the participants, individuals and teams. The facilitators will share information and facilitate discussion for teams to gain the knowledge and the skills to work successfully within your academic community.
