Abstract Title: Comparing electronic and traditional lab notebooks in the advanced lab
Abstract: For the past two years, the advanced lab course at Carleton College has required students to use electronic lab notebooks (ELNs) instead of traditional lab notebooks. The course involves both instructor-designed labs and a significant student-designed project component. I will present results of a survey of student impressions about how their use of ELNs compared to traditional lab notebooks, and summarize what students identify as the strengths and weaknesses of each notebook format. In addition, I will share the instructor perspective of the benefits and drawbacks of using ELNs in an advanced lab course.
