Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Learning in the Laboratory: Evidence and Assessment

Symposium Title: Learning in the Laboratory: Evidence and Assessment
Descrption: While most chemists agree that laboratory work is an important part of introductory science courses, there is scant evidence for the relationship between laboratory work and learning, particularly at the college level. The objective of this symposium is to create a space to present and discuss evidence and assessment for the effectiveness of laboratory environments in promoting learning, skills (technical and intellectual) and other types of gains in participants (students and teaching assistants). Studies of diverse laboratory formats and academic levels are welcomed.
