    Recasting Laboratory Pedagogy to Fit Guided-Inquiry Experiments

Guided inquiry and design-based experiments give students opportunities to do what real chemists do: ask interesting questions and carry out experiments to answer those questions. These experiments engage students in complex issues of design, analysis, interpretation and evaluation, skills that students came to college to learn. As we restructure laboratory work, we must simultaneously restructure laboratory pedagogy to teach these new intellectual skills.
