The following innovative course materials range from flipped-lab training videos to 3-D printed amino acids. Links to ASEE conference proceedings describe how to implement these tools in the classroom.
Resources for Educators
CHE 8592: Protein Engineering – 3D Printed Amino Acid Building Blocks
Flipped Lab Videos
We have prepared a suite of lab safety and experiment training videos, which are shown in the bulleted list below. Each video includes footage of lab techniques and oral/written descriptions of the nuances associated with each technique.
Links for Training Videos:
Links for Experiment Videos:
- Overview of Cloning
- Restriction Digests
- Anion Exchange Chromatography
- Immobilized Metal Affinity Chromatography
- Hydrophobic Interaction Chromatography
- Precipitation and Desalting
- Artificial Kidney (Dialysis Device) Construction
I sincerely thank Villanova University for funding the development of these videos with a Classroom Innovation grant!
