Verification or “cookbook” activities have been shown to be ineffective for achieving student outcomes in the lab. Inquiry-based labs better parallel the scientific method, which helps students to learn science by doing science.
Facilitators Brandon Fetterly (University of Wisconsin - Platteville), Sally Hunnicutt (Virginia Commonwealth University), and Tim Herzog (Weber State University) will guide participants through the process of converting a cookbook lab to one that has greater inquiry.
Registration for this event is limited to 36 people. Registrants will be sent a Zoom meeting link 2 days prior to the webinar. Please note that the session begins at 7 PM Eastern (6 PM Central/5 PM Mountain/4 PM Pacific). The session is scheduled for 75 minutes.
