Active Learning Techniques with Biopac Student Lab—Featured Article
Dr. Renata Fortuna Ramos at Rice University took an inventive step to try to increase student engagement within her Systems Physiology Laboratory Module (BIOE 320) course. Her paper entitled “Introduction of Active Learning Techniques Increases Student Learning in a Systems Physiology Laboratory Course” details her steps to implementing student-led active learning. The class, which requires students to use Biopac Student Lab to record and analyze common physiological signals, had groups of students gain in-depth knowledge of the material that then served as experts to the other participants the following class.
