Abstract

Students in the undergraduate unit operations laboratory course in chemical engineering at Michigan State University prepare a video laboratory report as a course requirement. This video report is part of the overall communication component of the laboratory course, which includes written reports for each laboratory, a live oral presentation, and in-class lectures and demonstrations of concepts in technical communication. The video report exercise aims to involve students in preparing for and making a presentation of a specified time length, (2) have students make an oral presentation and then review their performance on tape, and (3) develop a library of videos describing each laboratory experiment that can be used as a resource by future classes. This article discusses the preparation of video, video content, evaluation, instructional benefits, and student feedback.
