Dynamic Lab Manual

The Dynamic Laboratory Manual (DLM) is an interactive, web-based laboratory manual, developed by Bristol ChemLabS staff in association with Learning Science Ltd.

The DLM forms the centrepiece of the Undergraduate Teaching Labs experience in the newly refurbished Undergraduate Teaching Laboratories in the School of Chemistry.

The DLM received national recognition at the Times Higher Education Awards 2010 when Bristol ChemLabS won the Outstanding ICT Initiative of the Year award.

The Dynamic Lab Manual has transformed teaching and student learning in a laboratory environment.

Students will clearly get much more from the laboratory experience if they know what they will be doing before they arrive and pre-laboratory preparation is the key to achieving this.

One of the main innovations in Bristol ChemLabS has been to shift the balance of work done outside the laboratory to before, rather than after, the practical class. In this way students are much better prepared and therefore more confident. The DLM is the multifunctional tool designed to facilitate exactly this and much more besides.
