Abstract

An approach for integrated communication instruction in an innovative freshman course, engineering design and communication is discussed. The approach explains the arguments for its success, and review the challenges of adapting it to VaNTH modules aimed upper class bioengineering students. Integration of communication instruction into bioengineering course modules has the potential to help students make significant gains in their communication skills. The students are taught writing by experts in the fields and students can develop good foundation in writing.
