Abstract

Software-Based Teaching of Biomechanics to Engage Undergraduate Students

The purpose of this study is to determine whether software-based training can improve learning outcomes in Biomechanics. An existing biomechanics course is redesigned by integrating software-based training to compliment the lecture portion of the course. With the inclusion of software based training, students will be better equipped to further seek career-paths in NASA-funded research. A questionnaire was handed to every student at the beginning of the semester. Open ended questions were answered by the students as well as questions based on Likert Scale. At the end of the semester, students will be reevaluated with post-Likert scale questions to estimate student apprehension of the Biomechanics course.
