Teaching engineering has been a major life goal for Katerina Stefanaki.
“In my view, the main mission of an educator is to help the students become independent thinkers and provide them with the necessary tools to become successful professionals in their field of study,” says Stefanaki.
Stefanaki plans to utilize active learning techniques as part of her lectures to help students grasp the class material.
“I believe that engineering students should be taught engineering principles but also learn how to apply these principles to solving real problems,” she says.
