Education Division Elections Results 2013
The 2013 Education Division elections were held during August. Congratulations to Matt Liberatore on his election as 2nd Vice-Chair, and to Robert Hesketh on election to Director. Ben Davis was retained as Secretary-Treasurer, Taryn Bayles becomes 1st Vice-Chair and Program Chair, and Jason Keith succeeds Don Visco as Division Chair.
In Memory of Professor Donald Robert Woods
With great sadness we report the passing of Don Woods, Professor Emeritus at McMaster University; important contributor to the establishment of the AIChE Education Division; and even more important contributor to engineering education as a whole. Don touched the lives of many chemical engineering educators in a profound way, inspiring them to put the same rigor and effort into their teaching as they do to their technical research. He has long provided a regular series of workshops on teaching-related subjects through the Education Division, most recently a well-attended session on Polishing Your Networking Skills in 2011. His contributions to the Institute will be missed, but his impact on individuals motivating them to improve our world through effective chemical engineering education will carry on as part of his legacy.
His obituary is at http://www.kitchingsteepeandludwig.com/.
