Integration of Biological Applications into the Core Undergraduate Curriculum: A Practical Strategy
Komives, Claire; Prince, Michael; Fernandez, Erik; Balcarcel, Robert
Chemical Engineering Education, v45 n1 p39-46 Win 2011
A web database of solved problems has been created to enable faculty to incorporate biological applications into core courses. Over 20% of US ChE departments utilized problems from the website, and 19 faculty attended a workshop to facilitate teaching the modules. Assessment of student learning showed some gains related to biological outcomes, as well as improvement in student confidence. Incorporation of the problems seems to reaffirm student attitudes about their interest in bio-related careers.
