HEA Workshop: ‘Developing the Virtual Laboratory’
March 19th 2012, Lindisfarne Centre, St Aidans College, Durham University, Durham

Many students arrive at University with very little practical laboratory experience and with a significant level of anxiety about working in a laboratory. This anxiety presents a particular problem for non-traditional and international student groups.  Recently some Universities have started to address this issue by deploying interactive screen experiments as pre-laboratory tasks. At Durham University, for example, this has been done for both undergraduate physics, and for Foundation level physics and chemistry with a significant improvement in the student learning experience. This workshop will have the theme of ‘supporting science students with virtual experiments’ and represent the first forum where best practice in Interactive Screen experiments and their underlying pedagogy can be discussed and shared. Through dissemination of the work performed at Durham an informal network of interest has evolved at both Foundation and Undergraduate level, which includes departments teaching Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Biology, and Surgery. 
                
By bringing these two sectors together around virtual experimentation this workshop will facilitate critical discussion in relation to enhancing the quality of the student learning experience, with a particular focus on improving the retention, attainment and success of non-traditional student groups through blended learning.
