You Can’t Do That! Teaching Science Online with Real Laboratory Equipment

  1. 1. You Can’t Do That! July 30th, 2014 http://wiche.edu/nanslo Teaching Science Online with Real Laboratory Equipment
  2. 2. Introduction • M.S. in Inorganic Chemistry – The Ohio State University • Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry – University of Denver • 20-years in US Air Force – 10 years teaching at the USAF Academy – 2 years as Co-Director of the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching • Teaching chemistry for CCCOnline since 2006 • Director of CCCS NANSLO laboratory in Denver since 2012
  3. 3. Adult Learners in Online Science • Online Science Courses are increasingly popular in the U.S.* – Average of 3% growth per year from 2002 through 2011 • Online Enrollments increased from 1.6 million to 6.7 million – Science students represented 32% of all online enrollments in 2011 (up from 10% in 2002) *Source - I. Elaine Allen, PhD and Jeff Seaman, PhD, "Changing Course: Ten Years of Tracking Online Education in the United States", Babson Survey Research Group and Quahog Research Group, LLC., January, 2013 • 60% of online students are over 30 years old
  4. 4. Adult Learners in Online Science • Why Online? – Flexibility – Access • Why Science? – To advance their careers – Many in healthcare or related fields – Almost none of them are going to be scientists
  5. 5. Teaching Science • What do we want them to learn about science? – That scientific principles are accurate – form basis of realistic view of the universe – How to conduct a scientific investigation – how the process of science works
  6. 6. Teaching Science • How? (first year college) – We sit them down and tell them things – Have them read a textbook – We put them into groups (collaboration) in the laboratory and tell them to do things and tell them what to expect (confirmatory testing) – We sometimes ask them to perform and investigation without clear expectations of the outcome (inquiry-based)
  7. 7. Teaching Science • Why? – Because this method of teaching was developed about 150 years ago during the industrial revolution and hasn’t changed much since then. – It’s what we’ve “always done”
  8. 8. Teaching Science Online • How? – Post documents and videos to tell them things – Have them read a textbook – Use a lab kit to do the same kinds of confirmatory “experiments” that they would do in a traditional lab – OR - Make them come to a traditional lab
  9. 9. You Can’t Do That! • It doesn’t work! • They aren’t using “real” laboratory equipment • They aren’t collaborating with other students • They have no supervision in the “lab” • Real issue: quality of the data
