The 2021 KEEN Rising Stars
by Edmond J. Dougherty, December 2021.
In honor of our KEEN Rising Star award program, we’d like you to meet three young engineering educators who care deeply about their students and our world.
The 2021 KEEN Rising Star awardees are:
Dr. Reva Johnson of Valparaiso University, Dr. Andrew Sloboda of Bucknell University, and the KEEN National Rising Star of the Year, Dr. Heath LeBlanc of Ohio Northern University.
In addition to expressing their commitment to entrepreneurially minded learning (EML) and the 3C’s (Curiosity, Connections and Creating Value), each has demonstrated their unique approaches to making the engineering classroom more welcoming, thought provoking, and socially relevant.
Get strategies and concepts from these educators who have the intelligence, character, and skill to inspire students to build a future that will be better for us all!
