This workshop is appropriate for all secondary and undergraduate educators familiar with LabXchange and interested in exploring how to incorporate virtual lab simulations into their curriculum.

Workshop Description

This 1.5-hour workshop with LabXchange will explore ways to pivot your lab-based molecular biology or biotechnology curriculum to online or remote learning using virtual lab simulations. Participants are asked to bring an assignment, worksheet or other experience you use to assess student experimental skills.

In this workshop, you will work with other participants to:

  • Identify the core science inquiry and lab skills you want to develop and assess with students;
  • Become familiar with the design and possible uses of LabXchange virtual lab simulations;
  • Create materials to incorporate and support a virtual lab simulation into your curriculum.

This workshop will be capped at 20 participants per session. Accepted participants will be asked to complete a brief pre-work assignment prior to attending the workshop session. If the pre-work is not completed, your spot may be forfeited to someone on the waiting list.

Participants can earn 10 PDPs by completing all workshop requirements.
