Summary form only given. The first two of Carnegie Mellon University's annual NSF Engineering Education Scholars Workshops were held July 21-26, 1996, and July 13-18, 1997. The purpose of the week-long workshops was to provide new and future engineering faculty with information and skills that would enable them to more effectively assume the responsibilities of an academic career. The workshop included a variety of lectures, panel discussions and activity sessions, each addressing topics such as designing and teaching effective classes, advising graduate students, writing research proposals, and dealing with diversity issues. The short-term evaluations of these workshops included field observations, evaluation surveys, and a pretestlposttest evaluation of learning on intended educational objectives. The preliminary long-term evaluation involved tracking the on-line discussions, and off-line interactions, of the network of new engineering educators established during the workshop.
