While initially I had no interest in teaching, I grew to love working with students individually and developing fun and interesting ways to present course material to my classes. While my engineering research was challenging and interesting, teaching allowed me to see the positive impact of my efforts in real time. When I saw that Engineering Fundamentals was offering an entire series of courses about STEM education, I jumped at the chance.
“The outcomes of this work can be used to make undergraduate research experiences more effective for student learning and development in engineering,” said Faber.
Four Engineering Vols recently won Best Paper for the Student Division at the American Society for Engineering Education Conference for their paper “Minimizing Communication Challenges Faced by Virtual Teams.”
Undergraduate and graduate MSE students delivered strong performances at the 2019 TMS Annual Meeting, March 10–14 in San Antonio, Texas. The Bladesmithing team’s “Volsung” blade received a special citation for beauty. The team made a great video of their project, viewable above.
