Nease Engineering Teacher Featured in National Podcast

Nease Stellar Academy of Engineering instructor John Beale was recently featured on Certiport’s “Certified” platform, via a podcast.  Certiport is a national company which specializes in providing pathways to industry certifications for students. They also shine light on educators who innovate in the classroom and host educators at a national conference each summer.  Last summer Mr. Beale was invited to present at the Certified conference, to explain his unique method for grouping students in his classes.  This fall, he was asked to share his techniques with a wider audience via Certified podcast channel.  He is interviewed regarding his “Archer Method” for grouping, and describes how he integrates long-term, project-based learning in his classes to give students a better feel for real-world engineering.  We are so proud of Mr. Beale for the recognition and we are lucky to have him as a Stellar Academy of Engineering educator!
