The Student Guide to Biodesign is being developed by a team of Stanford Biodesign instructors, staff, and students who are passionate about education and making high-quality learning materials available and accessible to all.
The materials are intended to provide an “on ramp” to the biodesign innovation process for undergraduate students and other learners who want a quick start on their health technology innovation projects. The multimedia toolkits that make up the Student Guide currently cover most of the steps in the first two phases of the process – identify and invent. They also include new perspectives and examples based on our most recent experiences with students teams in one and two-quarter courses. Our hope is that this information provides a helpful resource for learning the need-driven biodesign approach, with more detail and guidance available in the Biodesign textbook and on ebiodesign.org, as needed.
On behalf of the entire Student Guide team, thank you for your interest in this project…and happy innovating!
