Reflection: Student Feedback Bioengineering: Microfluidics to the Rescue! (Day 1 of 3) - Section 1: Notes for the Teacher


What has struck me the most about the feedback I have received after this unit is that students appreciate learning about something they knew nothing about and is happening in the research world right now, specifically at our local university.

Students say again and again that knowing that this technology will help patients here where we live and that it will be used to assist people in areas where medical care is hard to get is a major draw in their learning process and persistence with challenging material.  They are excited to see technology being used in new ways to help people.  For me as a teacher, this is a great lesson and reminder about the hopeful optimism and activism that we can tap into with our students to help them learn, educate others, and potentially save the world one day.  :)
