Abstract Title: Preparing students for research experiences through instructional labs in electronics
Abstract: Electronic laboratory courses are a common component of many upper-division lab curricula, but are often not given adequate attention compared to the Advanced Lab. We began a project to develop goals, curricular materials and structure, and assessments to transform the junior-level course at the University of Colorado to prepare students to more easily transition into a research lab. A unique component of this work was to use interviews with a large population of graduate students working in experimental research labs to help develop content and skill goals for our electronics course.
