Teach & Learn

Simulation-led Learning in Nanotechnology

Content linked through "Teach and Learn" is designed to provide instructors and students enjoyable and effective learning tools through which to explore nanotechnology across a range of application areas. We have organized these resources for easy navigation according to the anticipated, immediate needs of the instructor or the student. There is a hierarchy of resource types from left to right that encourages a shift from teacher-centric to more learner-centric approaches.

For those instructors wanting to get a quick start on introducing simulation-based learning strategies in their courses, there are already developed course materials under "Available Teaching Resources." Instructors who want to design high impact courses, or other learning materials based on clear learning objectives and integrated assessment, can utilize our online tutorial that draws on the latest research. See "How People Learn 101."

Students who need general advice on how to make the most of simulations in their learning can consult FAQs for students. For those who are already using nanoHUB simulation tools and want to become more effective in their use of those tools, there is content under the same FAQs category that may prove helpful.
