Teaching & Learning Methods - Active learning, where students should be active and involved in the learning process inside the classroom, will be emphasized in the delivery of this course. - Different active learning methods/approaches such as: Engaged Learning, Project-Based Learning, cooperative learning, Problem-based Learning, Structured Problem-solving, will be used. - The teaching method that will be used in this course will be composed of a series of mini lectures interrupted with frequent discussions and brainstorming exercises. PowerPoint presentations will be prepared for the course materials. - A typical lecture would start with a short review (~ 5 minutes) using both PowerPoint presentations and the blackboard. This review will also depend on discussions which will gauge the students' digestion of the previous material. Then, the students would have a lecture on new materials using PowerPoint presentations and blackboard. The lecture presentation will be paused every 15 ­ 20 minutes with brainstorming questions and discussions that will allow the students to reflect and think in more depth about what they learned in that presentation. Then, some example problems will be presented and discussed with the students to illustrate the appropriate problem solving skills that the students should learn. The lecture will be continued for another 15 ­ 20 minutes, followed by examples and/or a quiz covering the materials taught in the previous two weeks.
Attendance Quizzes Student Conduct
Policy Attendance will be checked at the beginning of each class. University regulations will be strictly followed for students exceeding the maximum number of absences. Quizzes will be part of this course. No make-up quizzes will be conducted It is the responsibility of each student to adhere to the principles of Academic Integrity. Academic integrity means that a student is honest with him/herself, fellow students, instructors, and the University in matters concerning his or her educational endeavors. Cheating will not be tolerated in this course. University regulations will be pursued and enforced on any cheating student. Lab coat wearing is compulsory during the experiments' conduct.
Contribution of Course to Meeting the Professional Component Apply knowledge of biological and physical sciences, mathematics, and engineering to solve problems at the interface of engineering and biology. Design a Biomedical Engineering system, component, and/or process that meet specific needs; and demonstrate understanding of relevant technical, professional, and ethical issues. Function on multi-disciplinary teams. Communicate effectively in verbal, written, and graphical formats. Identify, formulate, and solve Biomedical Engineering problems that address contemporary issues within a global, societal, and Economic context. Recognize the need to pursue continuing educational opportunities in Biomedical Engineering and have the ability to do so.
