2016 ieee technical field awards

IEEE Undergraduate Teaching Award
Sponsored by the IEEE Education Society

terri Fiez

For innovative undergraduate engineering and computing curriculum development fostering student
engagement and retention

Terri Fiez has helped ensure that engineering students are well
prepared for their careers not only technically but in terms of
leadership, teamwork, and communication. While at Oregon
State University, Fiez implemented a learner-centered program
called TekBots where freshman students develop an autonomous
robot and build upon this platform during their four-year curriculum. By engaging students with a real system that does something interesting, students experience the frustration of getting

real systems to work and the satisfaction of accomplishing the
task. By graduation, students not only have a robot that they've
customized, they also fully understand how it works and how it
got there. Fiez also launched the first online post-baccalaureate
program to provide computer science degrees for students with
degrees from nonengineering disciplines.
An IEEE Fellow, Fiez is currently vice chancellor for research
at the University of Colorado, Boulder, CO, USA.

Joyce E. Farrell IEEE Staff Award

Sponsored by IEEE

Sponsored by IEEE

susan Hassler

Ken gilbert

For enhancing the global impact of IEEE
by creating the distinctive publication
IEEE Spectrum, which exempli´Čües the
highest values of science, technology,
and engineering journalism

For demonstrating distinguished job
performance and serving as a role
model to IEEE professional staff

Susan Hassler has transformed IEEE's flagship member magazine
IEEE Spectrum into an internationally renowned source for insightful and understandable coverage of science, technology, and
engineering. She has repositioned the magazine and extended its
digital platform strategy, establishing IEEE Spectrum as an essential member benefit while also expanding the visibility of IEEE
among the larger technology community and general public by
developing outlets for the magazine's material beyond IEEE.
Hassler developed a mobile-friendly state-of-the art website and
introduced a very popular video series and podcast service. Under
her leadership, IEEE Spectrum has won numerous awards for both
its print and online efforts, including three Grand Neal Awards
and a National Magazine Award for General Excellence in the
Thought Leader Category (2012).
An IEEE Member, Hassler is currently editor-in-chief of IEEE
Spectrum, New York, NY, USA.

Entering his 20th year at IEEE, Ken Gilbert has learned a thing
or two about how to manage a staff that really works together, and
he knows just how influential and diverse IEEE really is. Starting
his IEEE career as an accounting director, Gilbert moved over to
Technical Activities Operations, where he is senior director. With
a knack for maximizing the many different strengths that his staff
members possess, his skills as a team builder are well known. He
works to understand each person's abilities and interests to find
the best organizational fit, bringing the employee with the right
skills to a task rather than based just on a job description. He
receives great satisfaction in assembling and maintaining diverse
teams that complement each other, knowing that when his staff
members feel that they are involved and making a difference,
good things are accomplished.
Gilbert is the senior director of IEEE Technical Activities Operations, Piscataway, NJ, USA.
