Abstract

Continuum Biomechanics is a graduate level course taught in the Department of Bioengineering at Rice University, Houston, Texas. The course is primarily a theoretical one, based on advanced mathematical concepts. An important element of this course is the development of a lecture by each graduate student. The project involves the entire process of developing a board-based, graduate-level lecture, including conception, presentation and post-lecture support. This project allows graduate students to develop and improve important teaching skills, including developing a lecture, managing a board legibly, and understanding how much material can be covered effectively in an allotted amount of time.
