Similar to doing research, teaching and mentoring requires innovation as well. In our lab, we are developing methods to enable a better learning and education experience. You will find a few simple notes and articles below. We will constantly expand/update the content.
- Bozhi’s teaching and mentoring statement (November 2020). This is a shortened version.
- Quiet brainstorming, expecting the unexpected. We propose a set of three critical ‘‘E’’ processes—extract, expose, and evaluate—for an individual researcher to replicate team brainstorming.
- Transdisciplinary thinking. This was presented by Bozhi in a group meeting in January 2021.
- Three elements of the Ph.D. research. This was presented by Bozhi to the first-year graduate students of the department in September 2021.
- Elastic and plastic. How can we use mechanics to guide our work/life balance and personal success?
- Work/life balance. Some simple graphics for understanding work/life balance and how that would affect our performance. This was presented by Bozhi in a group meeting in April 2022.
- Materials-enabled synthetic reality. Using transdisciplinary thinking, how can we visualize our vision? Presented on Apr 20, 2022.
- Storytelling framework. This can be used for a farewell party as well! Presented on May 12, 2022.
- Messages to lab members who are starting their new endeavors. Communicated through email in May 2022.
