Teaching Materials Information to Bio Engineering Students using CES EduPack

with Dr Louise Smith and Dr Pippa Newby

Join this web seminar on Wednesday, October 28 to find out how the Bio Engineering Edition of CES EduPack supports both introductory and advanced teaching for Bio Engineering departments, and how these departments can participate in the development of future teaching resources.

Join this web seminar to:
  • Find out how the latest CES EduPack Bio Engineering Edition engages students with material concepts and material properties
  • Discover compelling ways for students to explore the basic structural building blocks of the natural world and the great diversity found in biomaterials
  • Learn how to teach the effect of changing a material property through processing, and the implications on the biological reaction
  • Hear new project ideas from our guest speaker, Dr Louise Smith (University of South Australia), who helps students to understand the implications of bio-compatibility as well as engineering performance when choosing materials

About the Presenters

Dr Louise Smith from the University of South Australia received her BEng in Biomedical Materials Science and Engineering from Queen Mary University of London and her PhD from the University of Sheffield in the Development of poly(vinylpyrrolidinone) hydrogels for treatment of skin graft contracture. She has research interests in the development of biomaterials for wound healing applications especially at the fundamental cell and materials interaction. She is also passionate about supporting STEM public engagement by communicating how relevant, fun and exciting all science and engineering can be. In her teaching Louise contributes through LBAM (BSC Advanced Materials) where she teaches biomaterials and is coordinator of the health materials stream. She also contributes to teaching basic materials science to first year engineering students through RENG 1005 (Engineering Materials).

Dr Pippa Newby holds a PhD from Imperial College London on Multifunctional biomaterials for bone tissue engineering as well as an Mphys in Physics from the University of Kent including a master’s project in Optical Coherence tomography. She has been a laboratory demonstrator, supporting first year material science students with their maths studies, tutoring at a range of levels and taken part in various outreach programs including space school, cool physics and forensic crime labs. Pippa supports the Universities in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
