FabLab du Mouvement Humain
Project acronym: FabLabMoHu
Topics: education, active teaching, curricular innovation, FabLab, sport
Disciplinary fields: life sciences, human movement sciences, neurosciences, psychology and behavior, bioengineering
Summary: The Master Mention Engineering and Ergonomics for Physical Activities (IEAP) from Sport Sciences Department strongly relies on the pluridisciplinary analysis of the human-product, human-environment, or patient-implantable medical devices interactions. The experimental, methodological and theoretical aspects linked to this analysis are numerous, complex and associated to several disciplines that require specific « know-how » skills.
The MSc training program lacks from a dedicated and appropriate space that could initiate innovations and transformations of the pedagogical offer. It is thus of the utmost important that the students can acquire and develop their skills to generate research protocols, master the use of simulation, acquisition, measure, data processing tools in relation to this pluridisciplinary analysis.
The aim of the current project is to provide students with an innovative space dedicated to self-learning : the FabLab in Human Movement. This unique space will foster the emergence and the actual realization of projects based on an active learning pedagogy where the students are at the core of the plan. The Fab Lab should give the AMU training programs a head-start and an external visibility with respect to the academic and socio-economic fields of expertise of the students (sport, ergonomics, automotive, aeronautical and clinical domains).
