The 2019 Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education was awarded this week. Three educators from Georgia Tech were awarded “for fusing problem-driven engineering education with learning-science principles to create a pioneering program that develops leaders in biomedical engineering.”
Among the three winners is associate professor of biomedical engineering Joseph Le Doux, Ph.D. (NY D ’86). Dr. Le Doux is also an associate chair for undergraduate learning and experience at Georgia Tech. According to the announcement, he invented the problem-solving studio approach for teaching engineering.
