TSM 363: Electric Power and Electronics for Agriculture and Industry
John recently conducted a two-phase redesign of his course, TSM 363: Electric Power and Electronics for Agriculture and Industry. Phase 1 of this project used Wiggins and McTighe’s backward design methodology (2005) to re-imagine course content and assignments around the open educational resource Lessons in Electric Circuits, Volumes I – V (Kuphaldt, 2006). Phase 2 involved the adaptation and publication of this text as Applied Industrial Electricity: Theory and Application to improve educational accessibility and save an average of $8,000 per year in total student savings.
John received a Ph.D. in Industrial and Agricultural Technology at Iowa State University (2017), an M.S. in Engineering and Technology Management at Morehead State University (2014), and a B.S. in Industrial Technology: Electronic Controls Systems at Millersville University of Pennsylvania (2006). He has over 5 years of professional experience designing, managing, installing, and validating industrial instrumentation, automation, and control systems in a significant cross-section of private, public, state, federal, national and international manufacturing and processing industries.
