S24: Guided, Guided Inquiry Labs

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

Learning how to teach guided inquiry labs can be difficult even for the most experienced teachers. For new teaching assistants it can be an impossible assignment. Without proper guidance the guided inquiry lab can result in a horrible experience for both students and TA.  The symposium will discuss methods for guiding (training) teaching assistants to run guided inquiry labs, problems associated with using teaching assistants to lead guided inquiry labs and examples of successful solutions.

I teach people how to teach chemistry to non-chemists. I also teach labs to freshmen. I'd love to talk about these issues and anything else related to teaching chemistry.
