Technology in the Classroom Webinar

Recorded: December 4, 2014

Donald P. Gaver, PhD
Alden J. “Doc” Laborde Professor and Chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Tulane University

Naomi Chesler, PhD
Professor and Vice Chair of Biomedical Engineering and Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor, University of Wisconsin at Madison

Richard Hart, PhD
Edgar C. Hendrickson Designated Professor and Department Chair, Department of Biomedical Engineering, The Ohio State University 

The expansion of social media and technology has changed the way educators teach, how students learn, and the way professors and students communicate. The webinar is aimed at senior and junior faculty who are teaching and post-doctoral fellows planning to teach. Join BMES to discover how technology is shaping biomedical engineering classrooms around the country. The featured speakers will share best practices around using available technology to support and enhance student learning for biomedical engineering education by:

  • Discussing advantages and disadvantages of electronic notebooks in BME design.
  • Identifying advantages and examples of new teaching materials by taking numerical methods with BME applications from paper to iBooks.
  • Demonstrating how an iBook course pack can integrate text, MATLAB code for MATLAB (Mathworks, Natick, Massachusetts), animated slide shows, and movies.
  • Sharing a novel approach to biomedical engineering first-year design: virtual internships.
