The First GOLC Remote Laboratories Workshop: Improving Laboratory Learning Outcomes
Laboratories are an integral element of Science and Engineering courses. Remote Laboratories provide real-time flexible access across the internet to physical laboratory apparatus, and can be used to improve both the laboratory experience and access to laboratories. This workshop aims to share insights into the most effective pedagogic designs using remote laboratories and how we ensure that learning outcomes for students are most effectively achieved.
The specific topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:
- Learning outcomes that can be most effectively achieved using remote laboratories;
- Methodology and analysis of the learning that occurs when using remote labs;
- Integration with laboratories of educational tools such as lessons plans, collaboration support, etc.
- Learning assessment in remote laboratories.
