Re: What are other institutions doing about undergraduate laboratory offerings?
Hi Vincent, I teach both lower-division (high enrollment) and upper-division (low enrollment) undergraduate laboratories. My plan for the lower-division laboratories this fall is to have one student working at each bench In the laboratory supplied with their own glassware and reagents. Masks and social distancing will be required. Hand sanitizer will be placed on each bench. I’ll have to run multiple sections to accommodate all of the students in the course. I have a similar plan for the upper-division laboratory, but the enrollment is small enough to have the students working at separate benches for social distancing and only need a single laboratory section.
