Eleni Christofa

Assistant Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering

May 2016 Innovation Fellow

Fellowship Project & Instructional Interests

My initiative focuses on incorporating technology in and outside the classroom to encourage discussion and self-learning of issues related to transportation sustainability. I plan to utilize social media and other online venues to motivate students to share photographs, articles, and thoughts that can initiate interesting discussions. I also plan to use some of the tools I learned during the Innovate@Symposia to facilitate in-class debates on contemporary transportation sustainability topics. My goal is to inspire more active participation and enhance students’ critical thinking and appreciation of interdisciplinary interactions given that my class often attracts students from both planning and engineering.
