About Our People

Chris Sharp and Youngbok (Abraham) Kang have been named Engineering Unleashed Fellows for 2020 after participating in workshops hosted by the Engineering Unleashed Faculty Development Program. They were among only 29 faculty members from 24 institutions of higher education across the U.S. to earn the honor, which recognizes their contributions to engineering education, and specifically, entrepreneurial engineering. The program emphasizes integrating an entrepreneurial mindset into practices that benefit students, their institutions and greater society. The workshop’s peer coaches nominated Chris and Abraham, and the subsequent application was recognized by an independent review committee from Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN) partner institutions.

Lorretta Krautscheid and Pam Fifer (Nursing) presented “Untethered Teaching and Lecture Capture: Theory and Technology Integration Facilitating Active Learning” at the National League for Nursing Education Summit (Virtual). The presentation focused on education affordances that are created through the integration of cognitive load theory with multimedia instruction principles and described how to leverage resources and implement Untethered Lecture Capture in a department or college. Current research findings, research recommendations and additional education innovations were presented.
