HI-TEC Appreciation Award Presented to Dan Hull for Significant Contributions to Technician Education in the United States

WACO, Texas (August 21, 2013) – A HI-TEC Appreciation Award was recently presented to Daniel M. Hull for significant contributions to technician education in the United States. This unique award was presented by chair, Gordon Snyder, and the members of the 2013 HI-TEC conference executive committee on July 23, 2013 at the High Impact Technology Exchange Conference (HI-TEC) in Austin, Texas.

Dan Hull is a Registered Professional Engineer with 13 years of practice in the laser field and over 30 years of experience leading education reform efforts across the United States and internationally. In 2006 he established the NSF/ATE National Center for Optics and Photonics Education; he continues to serve as Principal Investigator and Executive Director of OP-TEC.

In 1979 Hull established CORD (Center for Occupational Research and Development), and served as its CEO until 2006. He also established the National Coalition for Advanced Technology Centers, and the National Tech Prep Network (now the National Career Pathways Network). He conceived and collaborated in the creation of the NSF center-sponsored, annual HI-TEC Conference.

Hull is the author of seven books on Tech Prep, Career Pathways, and contextual teaching and learning. His more recent books are Career Pathways: Education with a Purpose (2005), Adult Career Pathways (2007), and Career Pathways for STEM Technicians (2012). He frequently collaborates with other subject matter experts to co-author these books.

Hull has been elected Senior Member of SPIE (the international society for optics and photonics), the Optical Society of America, and the Laser Institute of America. Hull was accompanied by his wife of 53 years, Rita Hull, and members of his family and OP-TEC center staff as he accepted the award in Austin.

This award represents HI-TEC’s commitment to support and recognize individuals who make significant contributions to the education and training of today’s technology workforce.

The High Impact Technology Exchange Conference (www.highimpact-tec.org) is a national meeting produced by a consortium of National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education centers and projects and is supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and contributions from corporate and industry partners.
