Nothing inspires more than hands-on experiencing and debating science and yet, theoretical courses are typically focused on knowledge transfer, and designed in a traditional lecture setup. In the master’s phase it is more common to supply students with hands-on experiences and the opportunity to apply their knowledge. However, to setup a bachelor course in this way is a big challenge, because of the large number of students. Nevertheless to activate and motivate students it is essential to embed hands-on (practical) experiences in a course and create situations where students are challenged to discuss about what they have learned.
With these above motto, Jan and Sultan designed and run the Applied Cell Biology course for the first time in Q2, 2019-2020 at TUe with a very high number of student enrollment (above 100). "Applied Cell Biology Course Design" project is supported by an Educational Innovation Fund-Boost. The course was designed from scratch to promote active learning. A broad range of innovational teaching learning methods including blended learning, challenge-based learning and research-based learning are carefully implemented in the course design. If you are a BME or BMT student and also interested in Biomedical Engineering Challenges we strongly recommend you to enroll the course.
