Labs

Laboratory environments address many different types of teaching from pre-lab lectures, to organizing group work and providing assessment to students on their work.  In laboratories the instructor helps the students to think through the concepts underlying the experiments they are performing, and ensure the experiments run smoothly logistically.  Instructors must know the lab methods thoroughly to help students with both logistical and procedural questions and understand the connections between the overall course learning goals and the laboratory activities.
