DFG BO 944/4-2 Hands-on Classes: Videoanalysis of Hands-on Groups
Learning in the lab (4)From 03/2006 to 10/2007
Staff: Franz-Josef Scharfenberg
“What is really happening when students engage in laboratory activities?” This is an open research question of experimental teaching, particularly with regard to molecular biology education. Such experiments need a complex cooperation of different activities which precise connection is not known, yet. However, such an analysis is a necessary prerequisite to unveil the relations between experimentation in an out-of-school lab and the following learning results. For processing of this research deficit, students are video-taped during their experimental phases in the lab. Students’ recorded acting is categorized – based on the guidelines of “Grounded Theory” –and related with knowledge achievement.
