Hieb Receives Teaching Award

Dr. Jeff Hieb, Associate Professor

Jeffrey Hieb, associate professor, was presented with the Distinguished Teaching Professor Award for Full-time Teaching at the 2014 Celebration of Faculty Excellence. The event held Sept. 16 was part of the 2014 State of the University Week.

Hieb is a Speed School faculty member in the department of Engineering Fundamentals (EF). In his teaching, he focuses on innovative and effective use of tablets, digital ink and other technology. He is an ASEE campus star and in 2010 he won the best paper award at the Workshop on the Impact of Pen-based Technology on Education for his paper “A digital ink and computer algebra system mashup to enhance classroom learning.” Since 2011, he has been using the flipped classroom model in some of his classes and recently redesigned Introductory Calculus to use the National Center for Academic Transformation’s emporium model redesign. Since 2005, he has been working in the area of cyber security for industrial control systems.

EF Department Chair Dr. Patricia Ralston nominated Hieb.

“Dr. Hieb is clearly a distinguished teacher in his own right based on his individual accomplishments for students; but what makes him truly outstanding in my mind is his ability to empower, encourage, and positively influence other faculty both inside and outside our department and unit,” Ralston said.
