Abstract

An inquiry-based pre-laboratory instruction towards improving undergraduate biomedical engineering students' learning and experience was discussed. The assessment included a final exam item constructed to assess students' ability to apply core energy metabolism concepts in a new context. The survey independently verified the increased learner-, community-, and knowledge-centerdness of the experimental group's redesigned pre-laboratory. The results show that the experimental group also reported a higher degree of satisfaction with the redesigned learning experience.
