Reflection: Perseverance The Business of the Busy-CNS! - Section 3: Explore


This exploration lab was of great interest to students. They found the experience both enjoyable and frustrating. To alleviate the frustration in the experience, I permitted students to utilize their personal electronic devices to access the dissection video and to use it as a guide. They worked in pairs to control the video and manipulate the specimen. This aided in student breaks and maximized efficiency of time management. They also helped one another out throughout the class. Students took the time to secure measurements and took their scientific ethics and sense of community very seriously. This was a great experience!
