Joseph Samosky teaches design, innovation and bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh and is an enthusiastic advocate of project-based experiential learning. He enjoys building bridges between design, engineering and clinical medicine. You can learn more about Joe's Art of Making class by watching this short youtube video put together by a student in the first edition of the class that shows some of the things they do and mindsets that are fostered in the class.
Ilya Avdeev is an engineering professor teaching design and lean startup at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He is a faculty director of the Lubar Entrepreneurship. Ilya and a group of students and researchers recently participated in a Johns Hopkins Covid-19 Design Challenge where they developed a concept of a mobile triage clinic using the city bus platform. The team is accelerating the idea and building a working triage clinic prototype.
Our guest speakers will share their experiences with fostering hands-on and project-based, experiential learning in online environments. After their presentations, participants will brainstorm and share ideas for offering these types of educational experiences in online and socially distant settings.
