Engaging students on societal impact of technology

Subject: Bio(farmeceutische) technologie en maatschappij (LB1082)
Academic year: 2018-2019
Period: 1st year Bachelor
Field of study: Bachelor Life Science & Technology
Credits: 6 ECTS
Faculty: Faculty of Applied Science

In this course students need to deal with technological concepts, but also with academic skills like oral presentation and with the implications of biopharmaceutical technologies in a societal context. It was hard to get the latter across for students. Our challenge was about how to engage students in thinking about and actually process these implications in a societal context and at the same time fitting that into the limited available time we had for teaching the course and for students to follow the course. I aimed to offer my students a more active learning experience, leading to a high quality learning experience and at the same time more efficiency for me.
