Abstract:

We have developed a hands-on experimental nanotechnology course centered on novel hybrid nanomaterials and nanodevices for undergraduate nanotechnology education at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM). This new course introduces the recent advancement of nanotechnology in hybrid nanomaterials and devices/systems to senior-level undergraduate students through integrating nine carefully designed laboratory modules. These lab modules have also been incorporated into existing nanotechnology-related courses of various levels at UWM, which significantly enriches the UWM nanotechnology education. Two major innovative aspects of the new course are worth noting: its unique content (i.e., attractive hybrid nanomaterials and devices/systems); and a new pedagogical approach featuring active and inductive learning. The availability of the course modules and the new course on hybrid nanomaterials and devices/systems constitutes a timely update of the existing nanotechnology teaching materials database to reflect the forefront of nanotechnology advancement. The new laboratory nanotechnology course, along with existing lecture-type nanotechnology courses, will contribute to offering a comprehensive nanotechnology education program at UWM.
