Hello Colleagues,


I am reaching out to ask if anyone has ideas on how they may deliver labs via distance.  Red River College is trying to start some planning for the fall that may involve some labs being delivered on campus and others online where possible.  Any thoughts or creative ideas?  Anyone using Labster as a resource?  I have managed to find some good molecular related virtual labs for free but struggling with Clinical Chemistry.

Hi everyone and thank you so much for starting this discussion Michele!

I hope you are all doing well in the new virtual world.

In regards to the questions asked. I haven't used labster.

We are starting to plan for September with many unknowns. Not sure if there be some live in-person labs? For now we are hoping to film some videos to demonstrate the Transfusion Science techniques. We are also hoping to give students a package of items to practice with at home. transfer pipets, tubes, etc. Hopefully that will provide some practice.

Sask Polytech is moving towards virtual learning as well! We are going to be requested approval for essential labs only. One thing that I thought might be useful is to create an image bank across all lab programs in the country? We have many lab images, as I'm sure others do too! Having a common bank of good quality images without having to search the creative commons would be nice. 


For microbiology labs, we have converted a few labs online by creating "unknowns" for the students to ID based off photos. We have also created a pdf fillable form that acts as a sort-of worksheet for students to fill out. I will share this during the educator webex that Michele has set up for next Monday, June 8th!
