LIGHTNING TALK: Engaging Students Through A Combination Of Graded, Bonus, And Non-Graded Activities In A Bioengineering Class
Session LOCATION: George's (3rd floor of the Johnson Center)
Intrinsic goal orientation has been associated with enhanced student learning. Particularly in (bio)engineering classes, conveying the importance of studying the underlying math and physics, and increasing the students' motivation to understand them, is critical. In a graduate bioengineering medical imaging class, we implemented various activities to engage students in the topic, aiming at increasing their motivation, understanding, and consequently overall learning outcome. This talk will present the implemented activities, studentsâ responses, and lessons learned.
