"Creation of a Paperless Lab using iPads in Honors General Chemistry"
Thursday, March 28th at 1:00 p.m. in the Marvin K. Peterson Library, upper level


In the Fall of 2012, twenty General Chemistry Honors students at the University of New Haven were issued the new iPad 3 to incorporate these devices both in the classroom and the laboratory. This discussion will focus on the integration of the iPad into the laboratory curriculum while creating a paperless experience, an environment where no paper would enter or be used for the laboratory over the course of the year. After a transition period for the students and instructor, the overall experience has been a positive one and can easily be implemented into any teaching laboratory.
