Content and conflict: The use of current events to teach content in a biochemistry courseBiochemistry and Molecular Biology Education (2003)
Case study exercises, based on newsworthy current events, have been written for a biochemical audience that include elements of both “content” and “conflict.” The cases have been written in such a way as to teach students basic biochemical principles. At the same time, a dilemma is posed to the students, who must use what they have learned about the issue to come to a decision to resolve the conflict. In this manner, the students learn important biochemical principles but are also asked to deal with the scientific or social conflict posed in the case.
