S48: Instrumentation in the Chemistry Laboratory Classroom: Lessons from Community Colleges

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Incorporating technology and instrumentation into the chemistry laboratory classroom is now the norm at many colleges and universities as faculty seek ways to engage students in course material, improve critical thinking skills and prepare students for research experiences and the workforce.  However, with the current constraints in education, such as limited budgets, large and many course sections and fewer tenured/tenure track positions, the challenge to continue to acquire, incorporate and maintain instrumentation can be daunting.  As a result, faculty must seek innovative ways to include relevant technology and instrumentation in their courses.  During this symposium, presenters will describe and discuss methods to best deliver hands on use of and understanding of instrumentation in the laboratory classroom.
