Laboratory learning is a central aspect of teaching within the health, medical and natural sciences. Therefore, it is vital that the students acquire the necessary qualifications to get the most out of their time in the laboratory.
The research project ‘Improving Quality of Laboratory Learning at University Level’ (IQ-Lab) will examine the competences acquired by university students in the laboratory and seek to determine how they get the best possible learning outcome.
The IQ-Lab project will run between March 2019 and December 2023 and is a collaboration between the Department of Pharmacy (SUND) and the Department of Science Education (SCIENCE) at the University of Copenhagen.
