Brainstorm for Bioengineering Faculty
From Stanford ASEE
Brainstorm for Bioengineering Faculty Workshops
Goals: To inspire bioengineering faculty to think about teaching and education by introducing them engineering education research, providing a platform for discussion, and fostering a community around education.
- For ASEE: Reach out to faculty, share our knowledge, and learn more about specific engineering research areas. This program could also be expanded to other departments if it works will with bioengineering.
- For Faculty: Source of concise and accurate information about engineering research that can be discussed and applied to current practice.
Format: 15-20 min talk at faculty meeting OR 1 hour optional talk with lunch (similar to Chelsey's RET session)
Style: formal presentation, crunch journal club, presentation + discussion (final decision will be dictated by time allotted)
1. Moving beyond the lecture: Integrating formative assesment and active leanring in your classroom (Steph)
+ learning goals
2. How our grades steer our students: Today and into the future (Sarah)
+ assessment vs eval
+ grading on a curve
+ pass/fail vs. grades
+ learning goals
+ what do we want our students to look like?
3. Curriculum Inspiration: From Stanford & Behond (Kat)
+ BioE curriculums at schools around the USA
+ Labs (Stanford physics lab restructuring and labs at other institutions
4. Engineers as doctors? Educating competent engineers and clinicians (Chelsey)
+ Integrating pre-med curriculum into bioengineering
