Bioscience Education e-Journal, v7 Article 6 May 2006
This paper describes an educational package for use in tertiary level tissue engineering education. Current learning science principles and theory were employed in the design process of these educational tools. Each module started with a challenge statement designed to motivate students and consisted of laboratory exercises centered on the "How People Learn" framework. The preliminary assessment of these modules supports their potential value in teaching tissue engineering laboratory exercises. (Contains 3 figures and 2 tables.)
