Professor Andy Adler in the Systems and Computer Engineering Department and Professor Jeff Dawson in the Department of Biology received the Teaching Achievement Award.
Their teaching proposal is entitled: Instrumentation for Human Performance – Instructional Modules for Interdisciplinary Collaborative Student-Centred Learning
Instrumentation for measuring and improving human performance is becoming ubiquitous, whether for sport, rehabilitation or lifestyle. Effectively using and interpreting data from these devices, however, is inherently a multi-disciplinary challenge requiring knowledge spanning several disciplines. This award will realize a suite of student-centred modules that bring biology and engineering students together to work collaboratively on student-generated, authentic, research questions. The modules will facilitate new (or enhance current) courses by giving students real-world, practical, skills.
Congratulations Professor Dawson and Professor Adler!
