Professor Will Schleter was award the Excellence in Teaching Award at the 2022 UTK Academic Honors banquet. Prof. Schleter has 20+ years teaching in the Engineering Fundamentals Program. Over those 20 years, he has taught over 20,000 students and developed many Web-based tools to effectively and efficiently manage the large EF classes, including a comprehensive customized learning management system and “the grading machine.” Prof. Schleter noted, “I have been very fortunate to work in a position where I’ve had the opportunity and flexibility to make an impact on a very significant number of students. One of the greatest rewards is that I’ve been able to help transition the traditionally large, impersonal classes into classes that prioritize success and support for all students.”
Thank you, Prof. Schleter, for all you do for EF!
