ISTEP/Troost ILead team gains international recognition for engineering leadership research

Researchers at U of T Engineering’s Institute for Studies in Transdisciplinary Engineering Education & Practice (ISTEP), and its Troost Institute for Leadership Education in Engineering (Troost ILead), have produced a series of award-winning research publications focused on the intersections between leadership, ethics and equity in engineering education. 

The team includes Professors Cindy Rottmann (ISTEP, ChemE) and Emily Moore (ISTEP, ChemE),  Professor Emeritus Doug Reeve (ChemE) as well as ISTEP Senior Research Associate Andrea Chan and graduate students Dimpho Radebe (IndE 1T4 + PEY, ChemE PhD candidate in EngEd) and Emily Macdonald-Roach (ChemE 2T2, ChemE MASc candidate in EngEd).  

“Our focus is understanding how engineers lead and how they learn to lead over the course of their careers while busy doing other things,” says Rottmann.
