Abstract/Description

Science labs are designed to provide hands-on experiential learning for students to gain practical knowledge of their disciplines. However, a global pandemic brought forth obstacles that challenged us to quickly reimagine and develop science labs that are available to students in and out of the classroom. In this session, we will share our experiences diversifying teaching modalities for lab classes in biology, geology, and physics to accomplish course learning objectives. We will discuss rationales for our decisions, provide student feedback, and identify potential resources to ensure course quality and student accessibility. Through identifying shared challenges and unique solutions, we hope to start the campus conversation on the future of science labs.

Goals for Attendees

Learn about the current status of science lab classes and participate in the discussion on best practices for the future.
