Aim of the Working Group

Laboratory classes are an essential component of most science and engineering courses with the potential to achieve a number of practical and theoretical objectives. However, the effectiveness of laboratory classes is often not achieved to their full potential. The ECTN WG Lecturing Qualifications and Innovative Teaching Methods is committed to improving this and is developing an online course for the lecturers in higher education who give laboratory teaching. The course is targeted at relatively inexperienced university teachers.

The ambition of the working group is to:

  • improve teaching practice in chemistry laboratory classes in higher education
  • improve quality of newly appointed higher education lecturers teaching in laboratory classes
  • promote activating teaching methods for laboratory courses
  • stimulate collaboration between the lecturers at different universities
  • exchange experiences in international context
