Developing an Interactive 3D Learning Experience to Help Students Understand Key Regulatory Processes Associated with Glycolysis



Recent recommendations for undergraduate biology instruction emphasize teaching foundational biological principles and helping students transfer these principles to more complex biological phenomena. These curricular endeavors can be facilitated by the incorporation of interactive visualization materials. The following research project was developed to explore whether a visual interactive didactic tool could be developed to improve learning outcomes for undergraduate biology students on the topic of allosteric regulation within the context of glycolysis. The results of this research could be beneficial for improving the development of interactive applications for science education.
