||Creating Significant Instructional Laboratory Experiences
||This workshop is designed to help chemistry educators use contemporary instructional design principles to make undergraduate instructional laboratory experiences more meaningful and significant. The workshop facilitators will work with the participants to develop the concept of a significant learning experience and will deliver presentations on the following topics: the interactive nature of significant learning, six dimensions of significant learning goals, integrating learning goals with instructional activities and assessment, and applying backward design principles. This workshop is based on L. Dee Fink’s book Creating Significant Learning Experiences which will be provided to each participant. This is a hands-on/minds-on workshop where it is expected that each participant will leave with a set of instructional laboratory learning goals and activities that are not only unique to his or her learning environment, but will also make the instructional laboratory experience more meaningful for both the instructors and students.
