Jessop Attends NAE Frontiers of Engineering Education Symposium

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Julie Jessop, professor of chemical and biochemical engineering, was one of only 72 of the nation's most innovative, young engineering educators who were selected to take part in the National Academy of Engineering's fourth Frontiers of Engineering Education (FOEE) symposium October 14-17 in Irvine, CA.

Faculty members who are developing and implementing innovative educational approaches in a variety of engineering disciplines came together for the event, where they shared ideas, learned from research and best practice in education, and left with a charter to bring about improvement in their home institution.

The attendees were nominated by fellow engineers or deans and chosen from a highly competitive pool of applicants.

This year's program focused on innovations in the context, curriculum, and delivery of engineering education.
