How can practical work and experiments be run during university shutdown?

Date and time: May 6th 2020, 12:15 – 13:15
Location: Online Event on Zoom

How can practical work and experiments be run during university shutdown? Three lecturers report on their experience.

In this virtual Refresh Teaching event on the topic “How can practical work and experiments be run during university shutdown?” will take place again using Zoom, an online video conferencing system.

Presenters:

  • Marcy Zenobi (D-HEST) will present some modifications she had introduced into her “Practical Methods in Biofabrication” course. These include home experiments and student presentations of their results by zoom
  • Yves Acremann (D-PHYS) has developed special boards for the lecture “Electronics for Physicists II (digital)“, with which the students can carry out experiments on digital signal processing at home. They have sent these boards to the students so that they can carry out the experiments from home. The range of topics is relatively broad, from logic design, digital signal processing to the construction of microprocessors.
  • Christian Franck (D-ITET) will present the changes he introduced to the lecture “227-0117-10L Mess- und Versuchstechnik”. In the course, the students would have had to prepare, carry out and analyse six experiments in a laboratory, involving classical electrical measurement equipment, but also high-voltage probes and safety circuits. Moreover, conclusions on first experience with the new format will be given.
