Neil A. Knobloch, Professor at Purdue University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in agricultural education.
What makes Dr. Knobloch stand apart from others is his ability to build confidence and take action for all learners whose access needs to be broadened. He found, for himself, that education was not very engaging or relevant, and discovered that an excellent way to make learning accessible to all learners was to use mathematics and technology to uncover why they learn in the first place. He strives to transform students’ lives and get them excited about their potential. He began his own journey as a student at the University of Iowa, earning a Bachelor of Science in 1992. Dr. Knobloch then obtained a Master of Science from Iowa State University in 1997 and a PhD from Ohio State University in 2002.
Dr. Knobloch began his career as a teacher at the Mid-Prairie Community School in Wellman, Iowa, from 1992 to 1999. He took on the position of a lecturer at Ohio State University from 1999 to 2002, when he became an assistant professor at the University of Illinois. Currently, he works as a professor at Purdue University. Additionally, Dr. Knobloch is the president of Actimax Learning, Inc., and in 2014, he served on the board of directors for the American Berkshire Association.
A contributor of articles to professional journals, Dr. Knobloch is the author of the facilitator’s guide, “Reap: A Business Management Simulation,” and the book, “Supervising and Mentoring the Beginning Teacher.” He also contributed a book chapter, “Becoming a scholar as a teacher educator.” In recognition of his excellent teaching skills, he has been honored with an Outstanding Teaching Award, a Distinguished Researcher for the Profession Award, and an Inaugural Award.
