How Can We Offer Science Courses Online?

Concurrent Session 5

Brief Abstract

Solutions for teaching lab science courses online will be explored. By attending this presentation, through active learning, participants will obtain an understanding of the many options available to include the hands-on component of lab sciences taught online.

Extended Abstract

Science education has been challenged by the demands and rapid growth of online education. One challenge is how to run lab sections of science courses online. This session will include the experience of actively taking part in hands-on lab investigations developed for online science courses. These investigations have been designed for the off-campus setting while maintaining safety and college-level rigor.

Participants will be completing a hands-on science lab after a brief 5-10 minute introduction.
