Re: [Channel-talkchemistry] Lab Reports

I liked the idea of chunking as well. I just got done taking a workshop
which included people who not only taught, but also several from the
research area. They described how important it is for new employees to be
able to take a problem and write a procedure that is clear so that others
can duplicate it. She got a job as a research assisstant with a BS. She is
now a research scientist. At this time she is working on her Master's
degree and says this will allow her to advance several more steps. I felt
that having the input from the those working in the science area is
valuable. It tells us we are on the right track when we require students to
write procedure as well a lab reports.
