William Kaiser - photo  William J. Kaiser in Electrical Engineering, For his development and instructional use of a tool, Individualized Interactive Instruction (3I), to facilitate a new level of student-instructor interaction. 3I provides real-time feedback into the instruction process, enabling the instructor to target areas of deficiency for the whole class while giving students a private mechanism to convey their understanding to the instructor.
