The power of education to help individuals shift gears, change lanes and find a new road to travel on is a central theme in Amy Gerrard’s chapter. First reflecting on her own journey into EE via several career pathways, Gerrard then contemplates the value of EE to a diverse group of students who experience real-world live case studies. Seeking to prepare her students for the actual realities of their immediate futures, Gerrard seeks to develop authentic resilience and confidence in her learners. Gerrard’s support for learning by doing and formative feedback have provided her with a rich set of experiences to reflect on her own development as an educator in the domain of EE. This process of development is occurring in parallel to her experimentation and role modeling behaviors, challenging her students to step up to their own individual challenges along the way.
