Novel Use of a Remote Laboratory for Active Learning in Class
Ramírez, Darinka; Ramírez, María Soledad; Marrero, Thomas R.
Chemical Engineering Education, v50 n2 p141-148 Spr 2016
This study aims to describe a novel teaching mode that allows for direct instructor-student and student-student discussions of material balance concepts by means of active learning. The instructor explains the concepts during class time while using a remotely controlled laboratory system that is projected on a screen with real-time access to the equipment. Both the instructor and the students discuss operation of the lab experiment. Student learning styles and perceptions were tested using the Index of Learning Styles and ANOVA analyses were provided for academic improvement. The test results indicate that the active-learning mode of teaching can provide live and real-time explanations of material balance concepts that can lead to life-long learning benefits.
