Enhancing the Level of Questioning in a Senior-Level Course

Faculty Spotlight: Dr. Chritopher Capp on Enhancing the Level of Questioning in His Biochemistry Course

Dr. Christoper Capp shares how implementing Packback helped his students connect what they learned in previous courses to what they were learning in their senior-level biochemistry course. Dr. Capp found that these connections began enhancing the level of questioning from his students.

“Over the past half of the semester that we’ve been using Packback, I’ve already noticed students are thinking much more critically and at a much deeper level about the material that we’re covering.”

“Now when [studets] come to me with questions, their questions are good questions. They’re the sort of questions they ought to be asking because they’ve already been pushed to figure out all of the easier questions on their own and in the context of their discussion with their classmates on Packback.
