Alternative labs and practice-based education
This page will be updated as new content becomes available. Please check it regularly.
As part of the Teaching and Education Delivery sub-group, a group with membership from across humanities and sciences, as well as representation from UCL Estates and Health and Safety are developing guidance and resources for alternative Labs and Practice-Based provisions online.
This Labs and Practice-Based Education group is also working with estates to develop strategies for physical provision on campus, considering the space, time, people and processes necessary to provide a safe and effective learning experience with the restrictions we are likely to face in the next academic year.
There are a vast number of educational operations that fit into this category - from Slade students making art, to medical and science students undertaking prescribed experiments on specialist equipment, or team-based design and build projects in Engineering. Detailed information is held at departmental and programme level, and in some cases at module level. In many cases, the nature of the work typically undertaken evolves; it is not prescribed, and innovates year on year. To support this broad range of activity, this page will act as an information hub for Lab and Practice based strategies. We are collecting and highlighting good/best practice, novel solutions, online strategies and other resources, as well as giving guidance to help staff address potential issues in time for Term 1.
