PROFESSOR EARNS AWARD FOR LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT IN TECHNOLOGY
OSWEGO -- SUNY Oswego technology Professor William Waite recently received the 2002 Lifetime Achievement in Technology Education Award from the Technology Club of Syracuse.
Waite was appointed at SUNY Oswego in 1975, received his doctorate from Ohio State University in 1981, and has taught professional and laboratory courses for over a quarter of a century.
His laboratory is known as a place where students work collaboratively to solve engineering problems presented each semester. Many of their products can be seen hanging from the ceiling in the laboratory, offering an environment that cultivates creativity. Each of his students designs his or her own academic Web site for use in future teaching careers.
Waite was active in the New York State Education Department's curriculum development initiative in the late 1980s and early 1990s, writing and editing many of the courses that are currently taught in schools across the state. He was chairman of last year's Oswego Fall Technology Conference, which attracted over 500 participants.
The Technology Club of Syracuse is a not-for-profit organization that has been active in Central New York since 1903.
