Cheryl A. Bodnar, Ph.D., CTDP, is an assistant professor (teaching track) in the department of chemical and petroleum engineering at the Swanson School of Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh. She obtained her certification as a Training and Development Professional (CTDP) from the Canadian Society for Training and Development (CSTD) in 2010, providing her with a solid background in instructional design, facilitation, and evaluation.
Dr. Bodnar’s research interests relate to the incorporation of active learning techniques in undergraduate classes (problem based learning, games and simulations, etc.) as well as integration of innovation and entrepreneurship into the Chemical and Petroleum Engineering as well as broader engineering curriculum. In addition, she is actively engaged in the development of a variety of informal science education approaches with the goal of exciting and teaching K-12 students about regenerative medicine and its potential.
Dr. Renee Clark serves as the director of assessment for the Swanson School of Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh. She received her Ph.D. from the department of industrial engineering, where she also completed her postdoctoral studies. Her research primarily focuses on the application of data-analysis techniques to engineering education research studies as well as industrial accident scenarios. She has 20 years of experience in various engineering, IT, and data-analysis positions within academia and industry, including 10 years of manufacturing experience at Delphi Automotive.
