Adopting Lab Courses for Remote Instruction

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 | 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Virtual Event

2020 has presented educators with a new normal.  With little to no advance notice, instructors had to quickly transition to teaching lab courses remotely. Most are already planning for all or at least partial remote instruction for the next term. 

We’ve invited three educators, Kim Edwards (University of California-Irvine), Michelle Driessen (University of Minnesota) and Meg Birney (Montgomery College-Germantown), to share how they adapted their courses in chemistry and biology for remote instruction.  Together they will cover tips, tricks and common hurdles and take questions on how to make it work wherever you are on the journey towards successful remote/blended instruction.

Connect with other instructors across the country for an interactive discussion about the challenges and solutions for the upcoming term.  

Save your spot for "How to Teach Lab Courses When You’re Not in the Lab" presented by LabArchives, LLC.

Sponsored by RIS (Research Infrastructure Serivces) and the University Libraries.
