From the Foster Folly News website:

John Gardner, Chipola College Automotive Technology Instructor, was recently named Professor of the Year by the Association of Florida Colleges.

Thousands of teachers from all 28 colleges in the Florida College System were eligible to enter the competition. Gardner competed with two other finalists who each presented a lesson at the recent AFC Conference. Darwin Gilmore, Chipola Dean of Workforce Development, said, “John went head-to-head with two other excellent teachers. It was so impressive to see him practice his craft and earn this honor.”

When Gardner began teaching at Chipola, he had seven students. Some 16 years later, his classes are full and his automotive lessons reach millions of people each week. Gardner says his “edutainment” teaching philosophy is the key to the success of his program. Edutainment includes content that is primarily educational but also has entertainment value. Gardner says edutainment helps engage learners, keep interest high, and deliver technical and complex information through multimedia techniques used in television. He incorporates learning modules, videos, and hands-on practice in all lesson plans to appeal to various learning styles.
