Teaching

  • SR-252 Employability, Innovation & Engagement

    A project-based module in which students are asked to propose and plan a business case and to introduce effective career planning. The module will be supported by outside speakers and is meant to improve the outlook and attitude of SPEX students in the areas of innovation, enterprise, entrepreneurship and employability. This will be complemented by an ability to articulate employability-related skills.

  • SR-254 Technology and Innovation in Injury Mechanics

    Students will gain a conceptual understanding of tissue adaptation to external load, the mechanics of injury for various human movements and how to measure relevant biomechanical parameters, with a focus on human gait. Students will gain practical skills in the operation of lab-based and wearable technology motion analysis systems. Students will develop critical evaluation skills to assess the validity of wearable technology systems used in motion analysis.
