ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition in Seattle, WA

By Ryan ReedComments Off on ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition in Seattle, WA

The ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition is the only conference dedicated to all disciplines of engineering education. The conference’s main focus is to promote the exchange of ideas among the different teaching staff on the different teaching methods and curriculum they find best. It is a chance for all to share new ideas and gain knowledge from others. The BME department here at LTU attended the conference.

We had two presentations and a poster:

Biomedical Engineering Workshop Hosted at LTU

By Nick DenneyComments Off on Biomedical Engineering Workshop Hosted at LTU

Faculty from 12 Colleges attended a BME workshop at LTU. The main goal of this workshop was to encourage the entrepreneurship mindset of students and for entrepreneurship should be integrated into the curriculum. Few engineers have come up with a concept and followed through to get the idea funded. The goal is to help students in real life situations by giving them opportunities in the classroom to explore the field from the mindset of an entrepreneur.

Dr. Mansoor Nasir and Dr. Eric Meyer hosted 13 faculty members from Lawrence Tech, Kettering University and Ohio Northern in the first event of the Quantified-Self Roadshow seriesFaculty from the original KEEN Topical Grant on Quantified self (PI: Dr. Eric Meyer) ) shared the modules focusing on Entrepreneurial Mindset  Learning (EML) from various engineering and science fields. The roadshow is part of a KEEN Topical Network Grant (PI: Dr. Mansoor Nasir) that is being leveraged to disseminate classroom resources for EML and student engagement around the QS theme. LTU is taking the lead in building the network of faculty and is sharing resources at a dedicated website qsl4eml.ltu.edu.

KEEN Provides a Grant to Update BME Courses

By Ryan ReedComments Off on KEEN Provides a Grant to Update BME Courses

Dr. Meyer and Dr. Nasir have been working on updating some key courses of the BME curriculum to give students more real world examples of BME related topics. One of these topics is the improvement and development of quantified self (QS) devices. These devices are a result of the public wanting to keep track of their personal health using hand held devices that monitor their: heart rate, calories burned, speed, steps taken and many other data points that monitor your performance. KEEN has provided a grant to Dr. Meyer and Dr. Nasir to improve the BME curriculum using QS. Students will be exposed to new ideas and technologies throughout their courses at LTU. The professors are trying to get students to look at and solve real world problems with confidence in their early years in the BME program. With help from KEEN, they can now provide the knowledge required to provide new projects in the classroom to better prepare students.

BME Professors Host Faculty Workshop

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on BME Professors Host Faculty Workshop

During the past year Dr.  Meyer and Dr.  Nasir have used Quantied-Self (QS), a popular social movement that uses technology to record data on all aspects of people’s lives (diet, exercise, sleep, insulin levels, etc.) to weave entrepreneurship into the biomedical engineering curriculum.

On Friday, April 24, 2015 they are hosting a faculty workshop that will cover the methodology for implementation of entrepreneurial minded learning in specific examples of course modules. Other faculty from LTU and Kettering University that have used the QS theme in their classes will also share their experiences.
