The goal of this grant is to improve student learning of the Biomedical curriculum by enhancing both the classroom experience and out-of-­class experience. During class time, iPads will be used to facilitate activities that augment the lecture, including: videos and use of databases. Outside of class, students will be able to use iPads to access lectures and  other course materials, [etc.]. Throughout the program, technology enhanced activities will be designed to increase student and faculty collaboration. It is further believed that technology enhanced education will improve students' ability to use technology in their work, thus making them better prepared to engage with technology enhanced systems they will encounter in their careers.
