Challenging and engaging, the waitlist for her course was double the average.

Driven by the personal goal of helping engineers manage their communication regarding innovation, Burks accepted a faculty offer from the Department of Engineering Education. In 2013 and 2015, she was nominated for the Provost's Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Lecturer, one of OSU's highest faculty honors. She has presented at the state and national level on engineering ethics and the liabilities of electronic communication.
