Lorraine Kisselburgh (Ph.D., Purdue University) is Assistant Professor in the Brian Lamb School of Communication at Purdue University. Her research interests include the dynamics and structures of collaboration, and privacy and gender in sociotechnical environments. Kisselburgh has a background in human performance and computer science, and brings over twenty years professional experience designing and supporting learning environments in academic settings, including 35 computing labs and 2 academic buildings. She is currently co-PI on two active NSF projects, including a Cyberlearning project to develop collaborative design environments for engineers, and an Ethics in Science and Engineering project to develop online course modules to develop moral reasoning abilities in engineers. Her research has also been funded by the Department of Homeland Security, by corporate foundations, and by the Purdue Research Foundation and College of Engineering. She is a member of the Purdue Advisory Council for instructional computing, and has been awarded a Service Learning award, a Diversity Fellow award, and the Violet Haas Award (for efforts on behalf of women), all at Purdue University.
Carla B. Zoltowski, Ph.D., is Co-Director of the EPICS Program at Purdue University. She received her B.S. and M.S. in electrical engineering and Ph.D. in engineering education, all from Purdue University. She has served as a lecturer in Purdue’s School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Dr. Zoltowski’s academic and research interests include human-centered design learning and assessment, service-learning, ethical reasoning development and assessment, leadership, and assistive technology.
Jonathan Beever is currently a Post-Doctoral Scholar at The Rock Ethics Institute at Penn State University. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from Purdue University in 2012 and held an NSF-funded postdoctoral research appointment in biomedical engineering at Purdue. Jonathan works primarily in environmental and bioethics but also has interests in contemporary continental philosophy and semiotics. He has held fellowships with the Kaufmann Foundation, the Aldo Leopold Foundation, and the Global Sustainable Soundscape Network. In his current position he continues ongoing work and is developing new research projects around issues in ethics, science, and the environment.
Justin Hess is a Ph.D. candidate at Purdue University’s School of Engineering Education and a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. He received his BS in Civil Engineering in 2011 with a minor in philosophy and hopes to receive his MSCE in December of 2014, both from Purdue University. His research focuses on understanding engineers’ core values, dispositions, and worldviews. His dissertation focuses on conceptualizations, the importance of, and methods to teach empathy to engineering students. He is currently the Education Director for Engineers for a Sustainable World and an assistant editor for Engineering Studies.
