Excellence in Education Medal Award Recipients
Michael F. Korpi
For his innovative methods of teaching, especially creating joint courses at Baylor University, in which multidisciplinary teams of creative and technical students collaborate on projects at an accelerated schedule. The students enrolled in this program accomplish in a single semester, tasks that conventionally require much more time. The team-building skills and cross-disciplinary training students gain from Korpi’s innovative courses are directly applicable to and prepare students for the world outside academia.
