Two online activities to enhance understanding and assess learners' knowledge of bioengineering.
These learning journeys are for teaching in the context of bioengineering, specifically the search to replace or improve upon body functions. Starting from the experiences and outcomes, they give learners the experience of enquiry-based learning and allow them to develop their knowledge, and skills in relation to a contemporary engineering application.
