Development of a Laboratory Course in Nonmajors General Biology for Distance Education
Mickle, James E.; Aune, Patricia M.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v37 n5 p35-39 May 2008
For distance-education students, the requirement for a laboratory course can present a significant hurdle to completing degree requirements. To better serve these nontraditional students, the authors developed a distance version of the laboratory course to provide a hands-on experience similar to that of on-campus students. In order to make the program succeed, they modified the existing nonmajors general-biology lab manual (Mickle et al. 2000) used on-campus so that the exercises would be comparable, yet reconfigured for a home situation. (Contains 7 figures.)
