Upcoming Faculty Teaching Visit with William H. Robinson, Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering Wednesday, September 3rd
William H. Robinson is an associate professor and associate department chair of Electrical Engineering as well as a recent recipient of an NSF award to examine the critical factors that leave African Americans as one of the most underrepresented racial groups in engineering faculty positions. In EECE 277, he helps students develop the skills and tools they will need to design, simulate, build and test microelectronic systems that can be adapted to a variety of needs. During the teaching visit, students will be responding to the second in a series of design challenges, working with each other and William to troubleshoot the solutions they develop. In the post-class discussion, we will discuss the scaffolding that William puts in place to help all of his students develop the skills they need to complete a team-based final project as well as ways in which his research on broadening participation may inform teaching practices.
