Rethinking chemistry in higher education towards technology-enhanced problem-based learning

Madeleine Ramstedt and team startet to rethink teaching and learning for chemistry students in higher education. They faced the challenge to engage students and to turn them from consumers to more active producers of knowledge. They created a totally new course following the principles of problem-based learning using different web based technologies such as Wikis and more. The study asked whether the students and teachers appreciate the new course. The results show that the team did a great job.

Finally, published now!
