Madeleine Ramstedt and team from Umea University in Sweden started to rethink teaching
and learning for chemistry students in higher education. They faced the
challenge to engage students. How to turn them from consumers to more
active producers of knowledge? They created a new course
following the principles of problem-based learning and they used different web-based technologies such as Wikis and more. Then, they studied it, and asked whether the
students and teachers appreciate the new course. The results show that
the team did a great job. Published now!
