Flipped learning in chemical engineering laboratory practices

Here I go with my first post.

I am happy to announce that is very likely that we may work in a new Educational Innovation Project. It  is titled “Flipped learning in chemical engineering laboratory practices”. But, what do we intend to do? Our idea is to change the way traditional chemical engineering laboratory practices are carried out. To change from a professor centered point of view to a student center point of view. You can find more information about this topic on the web (i.e. http://www.theflippedclassroom.es/).

Essentially, it is summarized in Figure 1. We expect we will do that by using new open hardware microcontrollers. Its low cost and huge documentation available make them affordable and easyly used by students, allowing them to desing, start up and carry out their own experiments.
