Open ChemE: Increasing authentic student learning through open educational resources

TitleOpen ChemE: Increasing authentic student learning through open educational resources
Faculty/College/UnitApplied Science
Duration1 Year
Project Summary

This project aims to increase authentic student learning through the curation, development, and provisioning of openly available multi-media resources for CHBE 241: Material and Energy Balances and related chemical engineering courses. The online resources will be used to shift classroom time from content delivery to team-based learning (TBL) activities. This project will leverage the significant TBL expertise at UBC (Sibley & Ostafichuk, 2014). TBL has been shown to improve student learning in the classroom by supporting students as they undergo the most difficult part of a course, the application of their newly acquired knowledge or skills. Additionally, students will be asked to edit and build upon these educational resources as part of their coursework, creating a dynamic, and ever-evolving learning resource.
