As faculty, it is important to help our students develop not only their technical expertise, but also the skills of an effective professional. One critical professional skill is good communication. Here are some resources for you (as a researcher) and your students to rethink how you are communicating as a professional.



The Leonhard Center for Enhancement of Engineering Education was established in 1990 by an endowment from William and Wyllis Leonhard. Its mission is to catalyze the changes that are crucial to maintaining world-class engineering education at Penn State. In 2006 the Leonhard Center became the home for two other major programs that support teaching and learning in the College - the Office of Assessment & Instructional Support and Programs for Engineering Writing & Speaking.
