UVA Engineering Alumnus Earns Corcoran Award

UVA Engineering alumnus Randy Weinstein was awarded the 2016 ASEE Corcoran Award for his paper entitled “Improved Performance via the Inverted Classroom.”

Professor Weinstein, who received his B.S. in chemical engineering from UVA in 1993, is now a professor of chemical engineering and associate dean for academic affairs at Villanova University’s College of Engineering. His paper examined student performance in an inverted class – one in which lectures were provided in videos outside of class time – compared to performance in a traditional lecture class.

The American Society of Engineering Education’s Corcoran Award recognizes and encourages outstanding contributions to chemical engineering education.
