(60d) A Multi-Tool Approach to Integrating Nanotechnology and Fuel-Cell Concepts into the Curriculum
AIChE Annual Meeting
Monday, October 31, 2005 - 1:45pm to 2:10pm
Bringing cutting-edge scientific research into the general curriculum can be challenging for educators at all levels. We describe a multi-tool approach to deliver nanoscale science and engineering concepts into the undergraduate classroom through the working example of fuel-cell technology.
This approach includes using traditional lectures, multimedia learning objects, and a new lab activity to enhance student learning in a hands-on, interactive manner. The learning objects and lab activity are both new tools and are implemented in a two-year college classroom. Assessment of this approach is described and future assessment strategies described.
The potential to satisfy various learning styles is discussed based on feedback from the students about the new learning tools. We also highlight the collaboration between several educational institutions and research and education programs that made the development and implementation of this unit possible.
