This year has been disruptive for us all, and the BIG is no exception. Nevertheless, despite having to cancel the plans for our usual annual meeting in 2020, we do have some exciting updates to share with you all.
Firstly, the BIG leadership team has expanded! We would like to officially welcome Dr Yumna Albertus from the University of Cape Town and Dr Mark Kramer from North West University as new team members. The team has been meeting regularly in 2020 and planning is underway on some exciting new developments that will be announced very soon.
Secondly, we have upgraded our website! Part of the mission at BIG is to provide our biomechanics community with educational resources, so as a starting point we have added a new Resources section containing links to useful and freely available online teaching content, analytical tools, apps, data sets and online forums. This list is a work in progress, so if you have any suggestions for modifications or additions to the Resources page please contact us. We have also upgraded our WordPress plan in order to provide you with an ad-free experience on the site. This will also allow us to enhance the website with additional functionality that will be implemented in the near future.
Stay in touch and stay safe!
