Robinson named Innovator of the Year
Susan Robinson, M.S., associate professor of clinical radiologic and imaging sciences, was named the first recipient of the American Educators in Radiologic Sciences/Elsevier Innovator of the Year Award during the AEIRS National Conference in New Orleans from July 12 to 14.
The honor recognizes Robinson’s innovation and effectiveness in promoting student learning through technology, including using iPad technology to promote critical thinking and the integration of iPad applications as instructional strategies related to classroom learning and the clinical experience.
Robinson has long worked at the forefront in clinical development of digital imaging and remains active in many aspects of teaching, service and research. She has received numerous first-place awards for her scientific research exhibits throughout her career, including the American Society of Radiologic Technologists Scientific Display Competition Awards. Most recently, Robinson has been researching and exploring the use of iPads in medical education, including an article titled “Promote Active Learning with iPads,” published in the 2011 November/December issue of ASRT Radiologic Technology.
In 2009, Robinson was featured in the national professional publication ASRT Scanner as one of the three “radiologic sciences educators who go beyond imparting their knowledge to students, to fostering social responsibility in promoting social community service.”
Robinson has worked as a registered radiologic technologist for 40 years and has been teaching both didactic and clinically as a faculty member for the past 22 years.
