Abstract

Abstract This paper reports on our experience in the last three years of enhancing laboratory education at the Chemical Engineering Department of Loughborough University. Computer aided tools (virtual and remote labs) have been designed to support the hands-on teaching and learning of process engineering. Furthermore, pedagogically informed utilization has been investigated and novel models were developed, namely the TriLab and Abdulwahed-Nagy Constructivist Laboratory models. A dedicated website called the iLouh-Lab has been set up.
