Project Portfolio

The activity comprises the collection of information about current practice for delivering lab-based learning and assessment.

Expected outcome

This activity will generate proposals about delivering key skills and plugging gaps where they exist.


Outputs for the system will be

  • details of current lab-based learning practices in the School’s common Part A labs
  • a literature review of current practices for key skills in lab-based learning
  • recommendations for delivering key skills in lab-based learning
  • a handout for students on report writing

This activity is now complete. A handout on technical report writing and a literature review of key skills development in a laboratory setting have now been produced.
