This webinar is sponsored by Carolina Distance Learning.
Participants will have the opportunity to hear from 3 subject matter experts with over 30 years of combined experience teaching biology lab courses online. Each of the panelists has experience designing biology kits for their students to use at home with safe, rigorous experiments mirroring those done in the traditional lab setting. Some of the topics the panelists will be focusing on include:
- As an instructor who is new to teaching biology online, I am uncomfortable with the idea of students doing labs in their homes without my supervision. I am worried about safety and academic integrity. Can you tell us how you address these?
- I’ve been a biology professor for 20 years. I do not believe you can teach a course with an “at-home” lab that is equivalent to the lab I teach face to face. I am present in my lab to answer questions as they come up and guide students through proper techniques. How can this be done when students are at a distance?
- How do I know that my students will get the kits before the class ends?
- Can I control what labs my students will do?
- What if the student gets the wrong stuff or runs out of one of their supplies?
- I don’t even know where to begin. What do you recommend?
Deans, Department Chairs, Instructors, Instructional Designers, Online Learning Directors interested in putting their Biology Lab courses online without losing important hands-on lab component.
Please note: This webinar will be recorded and all registered participants will receive a link to the recording after the webinar has concluded.
