Inquiry and argumentation are complementary goals that make laboratory experiences more scientifically authentic and educative for students (Berland & Reiser, 2009; Jimenez-Aleixandre, 2008; Osborne, 2010; Walker & Sampson, 2013). This workshop focuses on preparing laboratory materials for two specific approaches to laboratory instruction: Argument Driven Inquiry (ADI) and the Science Writing Heuristic (SWH).

Participants are asked to bring an experiment that they want to adapt to ADI or SWH. Workshop leaders have extensive experience with each of the instructional models and will provide professional development on implementation of the two approaches, including investigation design, logistics of the lab report, and how to conduct argumentation sessions. Finally, participants will receive suggestions for convincing others to adopt one of these instructional models. While participation in the Principles of Running an ADI or SWH Laboratory workshop is not required, workshop leaders strongly recommend familiarity with at least one approach before registering for this workshop.
