Responding to COVID-19 we will be looking at ways to manage laboratory teaching with limited, or zero, access to lab spaces.

As we move towards the new academic year, we face an increasing number of challenges to allow us to produce high quality teaching and learning around COVID-19 restrictions. Many of these challenges are focused on Laboratory teaching, but will also be shared across all departments. To help share knowledge and best practice to move into hybrid laboratories, EdSIG (IChemE's Education Special Interest Group) and HCEUK (Heads of Chemical Engineering UK) are co-hosting a series of workshops with key presenters and discussion sessions to help everyone build a resilient laboratory course.
