Having trouble remembering the laws of thermodynamics? Use the Force.No, really.
Phillip Stack ’16M, a graduate chemical engineering student at Manhattan College, discovered that Star Wars can be a whole lot more than a classic Sci-Fi Hollywood franchise. It can be used to teach the complex laws of thermodynamics.

MU Engineering Professor Awarded 2016 Kemper Fellowship for Teaching Excellence

MU Engineering Professor Awarded 2016 Kemper Fellowship for Teaching Excellence

COLUMBIA, Mo. – University of Missouri interim Chancellor Hank Foley and Commerce Bank Chairman Jim Schatz today awarded one of the 2016 William T. Kemper Fellowships for Teaching Excellence to Robert O’Connell, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering in the MU College of Engineering.

Foley, Schatz and a group of professors, administrators and staff surprised O’Connell by honoring him with the Fellowship, which includes a $10,000 check. Kemper Fellowships are awarded to five outstanding teachers at the University of Missouri each year.

This year is the 26th anniversary of the first William T. Kemper Fellowships for Teaching Excellence, which were established in 1991 with a $500,000 gift. Kemper, a 1926 MU graduate, was a well-known civic leader in Kansas City until his death in 1989. His 52-year career in banking included top positions at banks in Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma. Commerce Bank manages the trust fund.

MU Faculty Member Since 2005

In his years teaching at the University of Missouri, Robert O’Connell noticed that while administrative programs were in place to assist with student retention in the College of Engineering, little was done in the classroom to retain struggling students. This became his motivation for teaching and his commitment to engage struggling students and is what colleagues and students believe sets O’Connell apart.

O’Connell believes that by using student-centered active learning, or learning where an emphasis is placed on student discussion and hands-on examples, he can significantly impact engineering student retention.

“What I feel is most unique is that he pays extra attention to the students who struggle most,” said Chi-Ren Shyu, chairman of the electrical and computer engineering department. “Several successful, young alumni shared with me their stories about O’Connell’s influence and how they overcame turmoil because of his advising.”

Students regularly praise O’Connell for his commitment to students and their education. They say that his teaching style is easy to follow, he presents information clearly, and he is able to engage students without leaving any behind. As part of his goal to increase student engagement, O’Connell connects with students outside the classroom by involving them in his research through the undergraduate research program and by mentoring students who wish to study subjects not explicitly offered in the curriculum through the independent study program. Students say through his unique approach to teaching, he is able to take personal interest in every student’s learning and ensure that everyone is performing to the best of his or her abilities.

In addition to his attention to student success, he has been involved with various university programs and initiatives. O’Connell is co-founder of the MU Faculty Workshops Committee, faculty advisor for the MU chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) as well as an advisor for Eta Kappa Nu, an IEEE honor society. In addition, he established a summer-based study abroad program to help students develop global knowledge and skills.

As a testament to the success of his efforts, O’Connell has won the most teaching awards in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. He has won the department’s Outstanding Professor Award three times since 2012 and the College of Engineering Faculty Teaching Excellence Award three times since 2006.

“Dr. O’Connell exhibits the University of Missouri pillars of excellence, respect, discovery and responsibility in his teaching and service to our students,” says Miguel Ayllon, College of Engineering International Outreach Coordinator.

O’Connell earned a bachelor’s degree from Manhattan college and a master of science and doctorate from the University of Illinois.
