Synthesis, Resourcefulness, and Effective Communication in Group Learning: Introduction to Biochemical Engineering
Summer School Poster Session Paper
Chemical engineering students must be able to analyze systems and synthesize solutions to problems in unfamiliar fields over the expanse of their engineering careers in an increasingly diverse employment environment. The course "Introduction to Biochemical Engineering" has been developed, assessed, and improved to address learning goals critical to such professional development. The inclusion of self-learning tools, open-ended design problems, poster presentations, and a laboratory experiment significantly enhanced the student learning experience. This training enabled students to develop analytical skills and to tackle complex problems in a team setting.
