Dr. Steinberg isanassociate professor of aerospace engineering in the College of Engineering and is active in numerous committees related to teaching at the college, Institute, and disciplinary levels. He is interested in the scientific study of how learning works, the “nuts and bolts” of evidence-based teaching practices, and student stress and well-being in the learning environment. A skilled and innovative teacher, Dr. Steinberg hopes to contribute to developing innovative delivery modes that are well-suited to STEM education and help drive Institute-level programs that promote adoption of these modes.
Regarding change to the perceptions of teaching and learning at Georgia Tech, Dr. Steinberg says,
I believe that a major challenge is obtaining sufficient buy-in from the faculty members to affect a large-scale change in the teaching culture. This includes educating the faculty regarding the current state-of-knowledge regarding teaching best practices; providing the time and resources necessary for faculty members to develop, test, and be comfortable with such practices; and providing appropriate incentives to motivate changes in behavior.
