Professor Lerner’s Book Receives 2012 Advancement of Knowledge Award


A book written by Professor Neal Lerner with Mya Poe and Jennifer Craig, Learning to Communicate in Science and Engineering: Case Studies from MIT, has received the 2012 Advancement of Knowledge Award from the Conference on College Composition and Communication. The selection committee for the award commented that “Poe, Lerner, and Craig’s work advances knowledge not only in the findings of their research about learning to communicate in the STEM fields, but in their research process, in the details of the pedagogical collaboration of which they were a part, and in the clarity of their ideas and writing.” The award will be presented in March at the 2012 CCCC Convention.
