Paper wins national engineering award

Information Literacy: Skills for Life,” a paper presented by Dr. Andrea Welker, associate professor, civil and environmental engineering, at the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) 2005 Annual Conference and Exhibition, has been selected as the 2006 recipient of the Glen L. Martin Best Paper Award by the ASEE Civil Engineering Division Awards Committee.

The paper was co-authored by Barbara Quintiliano, Instructional Design librarian, and Louise Green, associate director, Public Services at Falvey Memorial Library.

The Glen L. Martin Award is one of only two civil engineering division awards presented each year at the annual conference and is presented to the authors of the best paper from the previous year’s annual conference.

According to the committee chairperson, “This year, 39 papers were considered for the award. The Awards Committee found your paper to be very scholarly in character—well written, with excellent citations to the literature and a well-conceived, objective assessment mechanism. In addition, your paper addressed a unique subject that is nonetheless highly relevant to engineering educators.”

The Glen L. Martin Award, consisting of a plaque and certificate, will be presented to Dr. Welker at the 2006 ASEE Annual Conference in Chicago.
