LTU Faculty conduct Hands-on Workshop at ASEE Annual Conference

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on LTU Faculty conduct Hands-on Workshop at ASEE Annual Conference

Dr. Nasir and Dr. Meyer along with Dr. Michael Rust from Western New England University conducted a hands-on workshop at the 2017 American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference in Columbus, OH. The workshop in the BME division was titled “Hands-on activities for Prototyping and Ideation in Biomedical Engineering”. 

The faculty had prepared electronic kits containing open hardware and various sensors for the participants and shared how the kits can be incorporated in learning modules in classroom. The use of these types of kits promotes student-instructor interaction and builds confidence in students to create functional prototypes.

The workshop was attended by 11 participants and there was a healthy conversation during and after the workshop. The development of kits and learning modules is being supported by The Kern Entrepreneurship Education Network (KEEN) topical grant that Dr. Nasir and Dr. Meyer received last year.
