A Case-Based Approach Improves Science Students' Experimental Variable Identification Skills
Grunwald, Sandra; Hartman, Andrew
Journal of College Science Teaching, v39 n3 p28-33 Jan 2010
Incorporation of experimental case studies into the laboratory curriculum increases students' abilities to identify experimental variables that affect the outcome of an experiment. Here the authors describe how such case studies were incorporated using an online course management system into a biochemistry laboratory curriculum and the assessment methods used to document increased student learning. (Contains 3 figures.)
