Abstract

The critical thinking and diagnostic methods involved in troubleshooting experiments or diagnosing patients are important for undergraduate students looking to enter a research or medical career. However, there are often few opportunities or activities in the classroom for students to develop troubleshooting skills. We developed flipped classroom activities for use in an introductory research methodology course to aid students in applying lecture knowledge of how PCR and western blots work and to analyze failed experimental data. The problem-solving, scientific logic, and real data used for this lab make it relevant to the interests of students.
