Marnie V. Jamieson, M. Sc., P.Eng. is an Industrial Professor in Chemical Process Design
in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Alberta and holds an M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering Education. She is currently the William Magee Chair in Chemical Process Design, leads the process design teaching team, manages the courses and industry interface. Her current research focuses on the application of blended and active learning to design teaching and learning, program content and structure, student assessment, and continuous course improvement techniques. She managed and was a key contributor to a two-year pilot project to introduce blended learning into the chemical engineering capstone design courses, and is the author of a number of recent journal, book, and conference contributions on engineering education. Her research focusses on how to teach innovation and sustainable design practices to engineers and develop a curriculum reflective of engineering practice requirements. Recently she has taught a short course on how to design and teach process engineering courses to professors in Peru and workshops on Metacognition and Lifelong Learning in engineering programs.
Dr. Lianne Lefsrud is an Assistant Professor, Engineering Safety and Risk Management, Department of Chemical Engineering, at the University of Alberta. Her research examines hazard identification and risk management, risk evaluation and social license to operate, and drivers of technology adoption in oil and gas, mining, pipelining, construction, agriculture, and railroading, among other industries. In the past four years she has received $2.4 million in funding (as PI or co-PI) from federal agencies (NSERC, SSHRC, CFREF, Genome Canada, Transport Canada), industry associations (Railway Safety Association, Alberta Chamber of Resources, Construction Owners Association of Alberta), government agencies (Alberta OHS, WCB, Justice, Energy) and corporations (IBM, Weston Foods, Suncor). She has been a keynote speaker for IEEE, National Research Council, and Canadian Dam Association and others. And she has received several international, national, and provincial awards for her work. She is highly collaborative in her research and engagement activities with colleagues in psychology, anthropology, business, economics, computer science, environmental sociology, medicine, and several engineering disciplines.
