Abstract

Using lab kits as an inquiry approach to online science courses achieves essential learning outcomes, promotes deeper learning, and is pivotal to student engagement. 

Extended Abstract

Science courses require active learning strategies that are at the heart of scientific inquiry - the best way to learn science is to do science. The reality of offering lab-based science courses via online formats has lead college educators and administrators to consider and discuss the fundamentals of science lab experience. The use of lab kits as part of an inquiry approach to online science courses achieves essential learning outcomes, promotes deeper learning, and is pivotal to student engagement. This model emphasizes using legitimate lab materials, acquiring critical lab skills and actively engaging students in their own learning. This session will be a hands-on exploration of online science labs using lab kits to promote scientific inquiry.
