Current Trends in Laboratory Class Teaching in University Bioscience Programmes
Adams, David J.
Bioscience Education, v13 Article 3 Jun 2009
Students and academics agree that there is a need to make learning and teaching in the bioscience laboratory more challenging and engaging. During recent years there have been many published accounts of novel laboratory exercises designed to enthuse and stimulate students through active learning. The purpose of this review is to raise awareness of these innovative methods that exploit computer-based approaches, encourage enquiry-based learning and may even involve students in cutting edge research during scheduled undergraduate laboratory classes.
