Improving first-year laboratory classes in bioscience – students’ views
While student transition into university, particularly the first year experience, has been well investigated, there has been a lack of research into the first lecture. For new students, this is the first introduction into the formal, academic learning environment and therefore is an important aspect in early student transition. The findings from a study, using observations, resource analysis, and student surveys following the first lecture in four science courses, will be presented.
