Demonstrate an increase in student learning in the biology laboratory
Demonstrate an increase in student satisfaction with the biology laboratory experience
To meet these objectives, this project proposes to install light microscopes with integrated digital cameras linked to computers in each of the biology laboratories and to train the biology faculty to use this equipment.
The level of student satisfaction as well as the pass/fail rates of the biology laboratory exams and courses will be established. Student satisfaction will be assessed by distributing a survey to each student in the biology laboratory courses during the fall and spring semesters. The surveys will be distributed immediately following laboratory activities involving the use of the light microscope.
