Dr. Brinson's analyzes the efficacy of non-traditional learning spaces, with special focus on virtual and remote access laboratories in science education, and the implications they have for science and science education policy. I seek to identify the point at which physical manipulatives are necessary for learning outcome achievement, and for which science learning outcomes virtual laboratory learning spaces alone are insufficient. Such findings can impact accreditation policies from the institutional to the national level, state and national science teaching standards, transfer/articulation policies between institutions, admission policies to graduate and professional schools, and licensing requirements for professional licensing agencies.
