Flipping Over Botany Lab.

With increased emphasis on active learning through inquiry-based approaches, student time in the laboratory is at a premium to provide adequate time for experiment development and execution. Furthermore, diverse abilities and backgrounds of introductory students may require introduction to a lab topic beyond what is possible in a single introductory lecture at the beginning of a lab period. To address this situation, we have explored the use of a flipped laboratory design. Using readily available video equipment and software, we were able to develop a series of short videos to support specific laboratory and lecture topics. This has resulted in greater student comfort with lab activities and reduced the amount of time instructors lecture at the beginning of lab. Approaches, tips, tricks, and examples will be presented.
