S48: Research on Learning in the Laboratory: Evidence and Assessment

Organizers: Santiago Sandi-Urena (University of South Florida, USA), Jacob Schroeder (Clemson University, USA), Todd Gatlin (University of South Florida, USA)

Presider: Santiago Sandi-Urena (University of South Florida, USA)

While most chemists agree that laboratory work is an important part of introductory science courses, there is scant evidence for the relationship between laboratory work and learning, particularly at the college level. This symposium invites the discussion of research on the effectiveness of laboratory environments in promoting learning, skills (technical and intellectual) and other types of gains in participants (students and teaching assistants). Abstracts submitted for this symposium are expected to explicitly address the research design and evidence and assessment associated with the work to be presented. Studies of diverse laboratory formats and academic levels are welcomed.
