Faculty Success Stories profile faculty members who are engaged in innovative teaching practices in face-to-face, online, and hybrid courses. Each story follows the same template in showcasing faculty work, and addresses the role of academic technology, learning goals, student and instructor perspectives, and assessment. Each story also contains a sample of the teaching practice in action – via video, screenshots, photographs, or other means.
It's often said that misery is the mother of invention, and quite candidly, I was never satisfied with the Heavy Duty Truck Technology technical writing textbook that we used, nor was I keen on any of the other like textbooks available. I wanted to create a technical writing textbook that would blend well the academic with the practical. After interviewing many HDTT leaders in the field and online research, I was able to put together a textbook that would satisfy our enrolled program students and their future employers.
