For computer and electrical engineering department chair and professor Jeff Will, Ph.D., his dedication to being a mentor and teacher is now being acknowledged on a national level through a 2014 ASEE National Outstanding Teaching Medal.

The American Society of Engineering Education receives countless nominations each year for their regional and national awards, but only three national awards are presented. The National Outstanding Teaching Medal is chosen based upon knowledge of the subject area, accessibility, effectiveness in curriculum development, mentorship of students and other faculty members, as well as many other factors.

Nominees must also teach a minimum of two semester classroom or laboratory courses per year and have a published original work that either enhances the education process or benefits literature in the engineering field.

Doug Tougaw, fellow computer and electrical engineering professor at Valparaiso University, nominated Will for the National Outstanding Teaching Medal. They were recognized previously by the regional ASEE for co-authoring a study and have worked closely for all of Will’s 13 years at Valpo.

“He embodies everything that is great about Valparaiso University and our College of Engineering,” said Tougaw. “He is brilliant, hard-working, passionate about helping others, and entirely dedicated to his students’ learning and success.”

Will also received the Best Paper Award for co-authoring a study, “Problem-based Learning to Promote Student Creativity” and an Outstanding Teacher of the Year award for the Indiana/Illinois section of the ASEE last spring.
