Instructor, TEP447 | minhareo@yorku.ca

Minha joined Troost ILead in Winter 2018, developing and teaching a new course, The Art of Ethical and Equitable Decision Making in Engineering (TEP 447). Every year, students in this course have tackled new and persisting challenges at the intersection of engineering design, business organization contexts, governance and culture. Minha’s strengths in creating frameworks to enable complex problem solving are well-utilized in her case study and inquiry learning methods.
Minha brings inter-disciplinary expertise to teaching and researching design, engineering leadership, ethics and innovation. Her research into design learning and knowledge integration work in synergy with her teaching endeavours, to enhance students’ creativity and leadership in responsible design within technology-business-culture dynamics.
She has degrees in Molecular Biology (McMaster U) and Educational Contexts (U of Calgary). During her doctoral studies in Mechanical Engineering (York U), Minha received a President’s University-Wide Teaching Award (York U, 2018) and CEEA-ACEG Engineering Education Student Award (Canadian Engineering Education Association, 2020). Minha served Faculties of Engineering at four different institutions, contributing to engineering education in various capacities including: teaching, instructor development, instructional and assessment design, Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, and qualitative research with students and industry professionals alike.
