Toward "Reality-Based" Integrative Laboratories in ChE: Introducing Real-Time, Hands-On Troubleshooting
Hoare, Todd
Chemical Engineering Education, v49 n2 p118-126 Spr 2015
The implementation of troubleshooting within a pre-existing expository laboratory is described and evaluated. Student feedback indicated that troubleshooting activities are highly effective in providing a hands-on opportunity to exercise problem-solving skills and gain a better understanding of the whole process in addition to effectively promoting engagement and interactions within the laboratory group. However, the timing, evaluation, and scope of the activity need to be carefully considered to ensure optimal educational value.
