Symposium Moving Forward from a Pandemic: How the Field of Materials Science Has Adapted (2022 Student-led Symposium)
Presentation Title The Interrupted University: Lessons from Engineering Design in Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic
Author(s) Sunniva Collins
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Sunniva Collins
Abstract Scope With the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, undergraduate students across the country were sent home in March 2020, and universities had to pivot to on-line teaching and learning in a matter of days. Once past the immediate crisis, the problem of returning to campus safely and modifying instructional methods became a central discussion for university administrators. Engineering design principles and tools, such as the theory of constraints, creative problem solving techniques, data-based decision making and prototyping, were used at CWRU in Cleveland, OH to formulate the university’s response. These examples will be discussed, along with experiences in planning and instructing large team-based courses that never had the opportunity to meet in person.
