Ivan A. Shibley, Jr. (Ike) is associate professor of chemistry and science program coordinator at Penn State Berks, a small four-year college within the Penn State system. He has won both local and university-wide awards for his teaching including the Eisenhower Award presented to a tenured Penn State faculty member who exhibits excellent teaching as well as mentoring other teachers. Shibley became involved in blended learning as part of an 18-month project to completely redesign the general chemistry course at Berks. The course has now been delivered in a blended format for three years with an average GPA almost 25 percent higher than previous years. Shibley has taught the three sections of the course and is currently co-authoring a manuscript about the results. He also recently redesigned a nutrition course that was taught in a blended format that met only half the number of hours of a traditional course with comparable grades. Shibley has presented his work on blended learning at numerous professional conferences and has become an advocate of blended learning.
Shibley received his BS in chemical engineering from the University of Pittsburgh and his PhD in biochemistry from East Carolina University.
