Booske receives IEEE education honor
Duane H. and Dorothy M. Bluemke Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering John Booske has received the 2014 IEEE Educational Activities Board Major Educational Innovation Award. IEEE confers the award to honor members who have distinguished themselves in furthering educational innovation. In Booske's case, IEEE cited his leadership in developing, implementing and promoting student-centered active learning methodologies. In particular, Booske has played a major role in advancing blended learning and other new, technology-enhanced educational models, especially in his position as the director of the Wisconsin Collaboratory for Enhanced Learning (WisCEL). He will receive the award at the IEEE meetings in New Brunswick, New Jersey, on November 22, 2014. Booske and his WisCEL colleagues also recently received one of the inaugural UW-Madison Teaching and Learning Innovation Awards.
