Nicole Mogul is a senior lecturer in the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland (UMD), College Park, where she is also the assistant director of the Science, Technology and Society Scholars program.
Previously, she was adjunct professor in the Ph.D. program of Science and Technology Studies at Virginia Tech, National Capital Region Campus.
At UMD, she teaches courses in engineering ethics, science and technology studies, science communication, sustainability, and infrastructure and society. Her scholarship includes innovations in teaching science and technology studies and engineering ethics to undergraduates, and reframing science and technical communication as a core responsibility of effective scientists and engineers.
In classes, students practice ethical reasoning and critical thinking about science and technology (past, present and future), using a variety of techniques, including case studies, ethical frameworks, design thinking, rhetoric, storytelling, acting and improvisation.
Mogul has presented research at conferences of the American Society for Engineering Education, the Society for the Social Studies of Science (or 4S), and the Engineering and Liberal Arts Symposium. She is a Distinguished Fearless Faculty Fellow with UMD's Academy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and a member of the Engineering Education Research Group.
