Virtual & Alternative Labs:
Designing Innovative Virtual Science Labs for the 21st Century Learner
Friday, April 7, 2017
STEM instructors talk about using virtual/alternative labs.How can technology promote the development of scientific reasoning and methodology?
What do we know and what do we still question about virtual/alternative labs?
How can we use technology to help our STEM students learn more effectively and in a cost-efficient manner?
Attend the FACT2 Symposium on Virtual/Alternative labs for STEM subjects to hear your colleagues talk about using technology to enhance educationRegistration Cost is just $35 (includes lunch). Deadline to register is March 31, 2017.
Dear UUP members,
UUP will subsidize member attendance by covering registration, travel, and parking costs. To receive the subsidy, members must register for the conference through UUP via the registration form at this link:
If you already registered through this registration site and want to receive the subsidy, contact Lynn Alderman at UUP Headquarters: email@example.com, 1-800-342-4206.In addition, I will present member input on the use of simulated labs during the following symposium panel: All Things Considered: A Look at Both Sides of Online Labs.I welcome comments and suggestions for my presentation from UUP members who have experience with and/or information about the use of simulated labs. Please consider e-mailing me with your comments or to set up a phone conversation to discuss your experiences with simulated labs.
Here are some questions to consider:
1. Have you used simulated labs in your courses? If so, what kind of courses (e.g., course level; elective courses, courses for majors)?
2. Are there benefits to using simulated labs? 3. Are there drawbacks to using simulated labs? 4. Are there specific conditions/circumstances under which use of simulated labs works best? 5. Are there specific conditions/circumstances under which simulated labs should not be used? 6. Are you aware of graduate programs that do not accept student coursework when simulated labs are used? 7. What issues should SUNY (and faculty members/departments) consider in discussions about whether and how extensively simulated labs should be used?Sincerely,Jamie Dangler
