Abstract

A team of domain experts, learning scientists, learning technologists, assessment experts and students are currently working on developing and refining educational tools for biotechnology as well as for other domains within the "How People Learn" framework in the NSF funded VaNTH ERC in Bioengineering Educational Technologies. Educational modules in biotechnology cover a collection of challenges designed around bioreactors, mass and momentum transfer issues, and microbial kinetics, which are among core biotechnology topics. The activities form the core of the STAR Legacy Cycle method that was adopted as the template for module development. These modules have been tested in classrooms both at Vanderbilt and Northwestern and detailed assessment data have also been collected. The focus of this contribution is on development and implementation of these educational modules at two universities (VU and NU).
