UW Bioengineering faculty Alyssa Taylor

I educate future bioengineers, who will contribute to the development of new healthcare technologies and help solve today’s medical challenges.
Curriculum design
Optimizing student learning outcomes through educational research
My teaching activities focused on developing, implementing, and evaluating core introductory and laboratory courses for bioengineering undergraduates, as well as co-facilitating the Capstone Design sequence. Currently pursuing continuous program improvement activities as well as educational research, with the ultimate goal of optimizing undergraduate bioengineering curriculum design and student learning outcomes.
