USU PROFESSOR ELECTED PRESIDENT OF INTERNATIONAL TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING EDUCATORS ASSOCIATION
Edward Reeve, a professor in Utah State University's School of Applied Sciences, Technology and Education, was recently elected president of the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA).
The ITEEA is a professional association for those who educate future elementary and secondary teachers who focus on developing and delivering technology and engineering curricula as part of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. ITEEA also supports teachers with ongoing professional development opportunities and classroom resources.
“The knowledge and skills developed in technology and engineering education promote hands-on learning and real-world problem solving,” Reeve said. “There’s a push for STEM education, nationally and around the world, and while math and science are core subjects, technology and engineering are often overlooked. Focusing on them promotes integrative STEM education and student innovation.”
ITEEA’s mission is to promote technological literacy for all by supporting the teaching of technology and engineering and promoting the professionalism. The ITEEA represents more than 35,000 technology and engineering educators around the world.
Reeve, who has been at USU for more than 28 years, focuses on educating future secondary education technology and engineering teachers. He has more than 35 years of active involvement in technology and engineering education and has traveled the world promoting the profession and working to develop collaborative relationships with various organizations in the areas of STEM and industrial education.
