This chapter presents transferable ideas and concepts that we used in redeveloping the laboratory portion of 17 difference chemistry classes/units within one university, under the banner of “Transforming Laboratory Learning” (TLL). The point of this chapter is not to bombard you with considerations. Instead,we seek to give you an overview of the important factors to consider when redeveloping laboratory classes. Included are some pointers that we found worked for us in a large-scale redevelopment, and that we see as transferable to other institutes or science specialties.
