S8: Issues in Teaching and Learning in the Chemistry Laboratory

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

The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum to discuss diverse approaches for teaching in the chemistry laboratory. Issues that may be addressed in this symposium include: the role of inquiry in the chemistry laboratory, the unique aspects of the laboratory which target specific learning objectives, the potential link between learning science in laboratory and lecture environments, and the practical constraints to providing quality laboratory experiences in diverse settings. Presenters are encouraged to report preliminary data on research in progress. Symposium presenters and the audience are also encouraged to pose questions for discussion on issues addressed during the session. A panel discussion will follow the presentations. 

Presider: Barbara L. Gonzalez, California State University Fullerton
