Abstract

Neuroscientists accept that we are indeed faced with an overwhelming challenge in understanding how the brain works. A better understanding of the brain will ultimately enable us to appreciate how well our students have grasped their learning materials. It will also enable us to diagnose and treat neurological disorders more effectively. Designing and developing the next generation of wearable devices is an important steppingstone towards this endeavor. Consequently, interdisciplinary efforts are required in co-creating educational materials that enable future neuro-engineers to develop these new devices. The aim of this article is to present a review of current undergraduate programmes that deal with this issue. Moreover, we provide recommendations for how new programmes in this field can be organized and delivered to ensure effective benefit for transnational students.
