Abstract

Various approaches that actively engage the students in models of challenge-based learning in bioengineering are discussed. Data were collected using an observation systems to quantify each student's level of engagement during class in the experimental and control groups. A one-year, three-instructor, two-institution assessment design was studied. Analysis indicates that a higher level of students engagement during challenge-based instructions and statistically significant improvement in understanding between pre- and post assessment.
