Labs @ Home - Tips and Strategies for Developing Online Labs

Presenter:
Jennifer Van Dommelen is a Senior Instructor in the Department of Biology and a CLT Faculty Associate.

Description:
Though some consider them to be "the last mile"1 of distance learning, science courses -- including labs -- can be taught successfully online. In this webinar, the presenter will briefly describe her experience with developing labs in two online introductory biology courses and offer prompts and guiding questions to help you to determine which components of your lab program can work well online2.

There will be time for Q&A; colleagues with experience in teaching online labs in other subjects are welcome to attend and/or contact the presenter directly to contribute to a crowdsourced list of recommended resources.
