A Project-Based Case Study For Students Interested In Biomedical Engineering

With the development and evolution of functional devices from low-cost components, there is an opportunity to devise project-based learning experiences for students interested in biomedical engineering. This work focuses on the development of an authentic project-based learning case study involving a device to measure heart rate in a second year engineering design course. When creating new learning experiences, it is important to ensure that the learning goals, activities, and assessments align. We also believe that proper placement in the curriculum must be considered. The goals-activities-products-assessments (GAPA) framework is one documented tool for achieving alignment in project-based learning. This work aims to demonstrate the utility of a project goals framework in defining student-centered learning goals for a new learning experience.
