(Mickelson, Alan R - 2022) -- Open Educator Award uri icon



  • Alan Mickelson, an associate professor in Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, is honored this year for his use of David J.C. MacKay’s openly-licensed text Sustainable Energy–Without the Hot Air in the course ECEN 1500 Sustainable Energy. Student Jessie Villagran nominated Mickelson and commended his integration of this open educational resource (OER): “Not only did Professor Mickelson [use] this OER to his course, but for every homework problem he sends us, he also has created examples for each of these problems with videos explaining how to solve every single one of these examples. This dedication to giving students the most information is what makes him stand out to me as a nominee.
