Description/Abstract

Pedagogy of discovery, inquiry, and analysis in undergraduate research is needed. By using a PBL approach across multiple courses, we hope to cultivate desirable attributes of a competent researcher. We use “Blackboard” as a platform to design activities which encourage studentcentered learning. Current biomedical articles in popular press are used as triggers to generate a series of learning activities – readings of primary source articles, interpretation and analysis of data, and application to multifaceted real world problems. Students are more appreciative of this learning style in graduate and medical school as evidenced by testimonials. [NIH-MARC and RISE Grants; Biology Department]
