Alex Vincent Jannini Syracuse University

visit author page

Alex Jannini is a fourth-year PhD student at Syracuse University in the Biomedical and Chemical Engineering Department. His current research consists of developing tough and elastic double network hydrogels that have adhesive, self-healing, and biomimetic properties. His Master's research focused on implementing pharmaceutical engineering concepts into lab-based, introductory engineering courses. He has had experience in the classroom as an adjunct professor at Rowan University. In this role, he helped develop a series of experiments for a freshman engineering course that explored introductory engineering concepts through chocolate manufacturing, and another series of experiments involving dissolvable thin films for a similar course. Alex is also the president of the Syracuse University Chapter of ASEE, and has been working diligently with his executive board to provide seminars and workshops for their fellow graduate students. Alex's plans upon graduation involve becoming a professor or lecturer, specifically at a primarily undergraduate institution.

Abstract

The graduate chapter of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE@__) and the __ STEM Librarian formed a collaborative and mutually beneficial partnership with the goal of enhancing non-curricular educational opportunities for graduate students in the College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS). By combining the expertise of both organizations, including strategies for event planning, marketing, and outreach, as well as data garnered through event feedback surveys, significant strides were made toward connecting with and better understanding the needs of the ECS graduate students. The goal of this study is to share lessons learned and recommendations for developing successful graduate programming initiatives through collaboration.
