Use of Instructional Technology as an Integral Part of a Non-Major Science Laboratory Course: A New Design
The use of instructional technology to learn and teach science is a natural approach for today's undergraduate. This online journal article discusses the advantages and outcomes of adding computers to a non-major laboratory to serve as the research laboratory notebook. The computers converted the course into a dynamic student- centered classroom. Cooperative teams became very active in doing inquiries, using the tools of technology to gather background information and presenting the information in a variety of forms. The article also provides student and instructor comments supporting the design of this new biology non-major laboratory course.
