Dr. John G. Wells is a Professor in the School of Education at Virginia Tech (VT) and the Program Leader and Co-creator of the Integrative STEM Education (I-STEM ED) Graduate Program at VT (https://tinyurl.com/VT-I-STEM-ED), the only such program in the USA. He earned a B.S. degree in biological sciences and a BS degree in industrial arts from Florida State University, as well as both an M.S. degree and Ph.D. in Technology Education from Virginia Tech. Dr. Wells is an internationally recognized scholar in the field of Technology and Engineering Education on Integrative STEM Education and Technological/Engineering Design Based Learning (T/E DBL). Over the past three decades his research has been focused along two distinct and closely related areas of study: (1) establishing viable I-STEM ED pedagogical models (PIRPOSAL) that represent the habits-of-mind instructional strategies of T/E DBL, and (2) evidencing the efficacy of T/E DBL practices for intentionally having students “design to understand” (D2U); promoting designerly ways of knowing and validating such pedagogical practices foster critical thinking.
Dr. Wells has been the Principal Investigator on multiple research projects generating external funding totaling in excess of 6 million dollars, has authored 6 book chapters, published 3 curriculum guides, and disseminated more than 70 articles in various scholarly journals. He has delivered more than 80 presentations and keynote addresses at international, national, state, regional, and local conferences, and more than 60 international and national professional development sessions. Dr. Wells has been the recipient of several national awards, most notably the Technology Teacher Educator of the Year from the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA), Outstanding Research Award from the Council on Technology and Engineering Teacher Education (CTETE), and the Outstanding Teacher Award from the College of Human Resources and Education.
