The opportunity for students to engage in laboratory sessions is an essential component of degree programmes in the Biomedical Sciences. It is one of the few opportunities students will have to practice in a similar way that professionals do. However, developing and teaching an effective laboratory session requires as much skill, creativity, and hard work as proposing and executing a first-rate research project. In addition, in order for laboratory sessions to be effective, students need to understand not only how to deliver the experiment, but why the experiment is worth doing, and what purpose it serves for improving students' understanding a concept, relationship, or process. This poster presentation identifies and clarifies the objectives that may be achieved through the use of undergraduate laboratory classes.
