During the autumn semester 2010, we experimented with a range of active teaching methods on the course, Advanced Biochemistry, at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics.

A range of novel teaching methods, including the use of clickers at lectures, were introduced, and the effects on the students’ learning assessed through a written survey conducted at the end of the course. Our results indicate that an overwhelming majority of the students prefer the active teaching methods and that they believe they particularly benefit from the use of clickers in lectures and group work at theoretical exercises (TØ).
