Asst. Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering

June 2017 Innovation Fellow

Fellowship Project & Instructional Interests

Team-based learning and innovative instructional technologies have the potential to transform how we teach engineering. I am interested in learning more about how to organize and teach large classes that have a strong component of student engagement and interaction. Collaboration and problem-solving have always been central to the engineering curriculum—how do I incorporate them into my lectures and ensure they help, rather than distract, my students? Lastly, I plan to teach a class in a team-based learning classroom and I want to familiarize myself with the techniques and resources that are available.
