Prof. Chris Bouwmeester mainly teaches design courses in biomedical engineering but also uses the Myhal auditorium to teach fundamentals of biomedical engineering to 2nd-year Engineering Science students. He is interested in studying how he can improve student attitudes towards biomedical engineering and create an entrepreneurial mindset in his teaching by exposing students to authentic hands-on experiences, creating a community of learners, and having students learn through iteration.

Professor Bouwmeester has a background in mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, and cardiovascular physiology studying the effects of waves created by the heart and mechanical assist devices. He is currently focused on teaching engineering design, meshing inverted classroom structures with hands-on activities, and measuring the psychophysiological response of people in active learning environments.

Using Digital Whiteboards to Achieve Collaborative Learning Activities | Link EdTech 2021 Recorded Sessions

More importantly, I can tell you how to avoid making the same mistakes I made in creating these whiteboard workshops.
