Professor Erin Jablonski, chemical engineering, the 2015 recipient of the Class of 1956 Lectureship for Inspirational Teaching, will deliver her lecture on Tuesday, Dec. 1, at 7 p.m. in the Elaine Langone Center Gallery Theatre. A reception in her honor will be held afterward in the Center Room, ELC 256.

Jablonski's lecture is titled "Recognizing the Opportunities." In this talk, she will explore how she uses her training as an engineer, combined with the practice of being a teacher-scholar, to recognize opportunities for engaging diverse types of students across class years, majors and courses. She will also discuss how many of her educational successes as an instructor occur when she is able to teach broadly within the realm of her research interests, and she will share perspective about fostering the connection between research and teaching.

As a matter of personal interest, Jablonski will discuss how being a woman in her field reinforces her sense of responsibility as a role model, and how this impacts her relationships with students. She will also share her passion for pre-college education and highlight programs in the College of Engineering that present their own unique opportunities.

The Class of 1956 Lectureship was established in recognition of inspirational teaching. The lecture is given annually by a member of the faculty of Bucknell. The committee that selects the recipient of this lectureship consists of the provost, deans, two faculty representatives and two student representatives.
