Remote Teaching and Assessment of Professional Science Laboratory Skills

Sashi Jeffries, Wiremu S. Demchick, Magdalena Bereza, and Paul H. Demchick

Abstract—An approach and system for remote teaching and assessment of a range of science laboratory skills including use of pipettes, micropipettes, dispensing solids by mass and aseptic manipulations is described. This approach assures that students have a range of job-ready practical skills before undertaking a training placement in a commercial laboratory. The system allows two-way audio and video between the student and the educator, allows the educator to remotely know the reading on a digital laboratory balance and allows student and educator to view each other’s inputs in real time on a mock Laboratory Information Management System (simulating those used in professional laboratories).

Index Terms—Science laboratory skills, pipetting, weighing, distance learning, distance assessment.
