Hayden-McNeil Lab Solutions Partners with Learning Science to Provide Start-to-End Lab Experience
ORLANDO, FLA. (PRWEB)
April 1, 2019
Hayden-McNeil Lab Solutions, a division of Macmillan Learning, announced today during the American Chemical Society's National Meeting & Expo an exclusive partnership with UK-based Learning Science Ltd to offer their Learning Science Smart Worksheets to US-based customers. Recent studies have found that providing delayed feedback to students can reduce their engagement; this partnership was established to address that concern by pairing Hayden-McNeil Labs Solutions custom lab manuals and online coursework with Smart Worksheets to create a seamless, enhanced lab experience for students studying life and physical sciences that offers immediate answers to their questions.
"This new partnership provides Hayden-McNeil Lab Solutions with a complete solution for the lab that helps instructors focus on their most important task - helping students to become better scientists by learning from data they collect in their labs. Adding assessments with immediate and consistent feedback to our already robust lab products removes the time burden of checking calculations and manually grading papers," said Margaret Erdman, Vice President of Hayden-McNeil Lab Solutions.
Customized to the teaching and learning goals of each course, Hayden-McNeil Lab Solutions' interactive coursework provide STEM students with the preparation and guidance to help them learn more from assigned experiments that may include illustrations, written experiments, images, videos, and digital interactives.
Smart Worksheets are customized alongside the Hayden-McNeil Labs Solutions' online labs, and are used after lab work is complete for students to reflect on the data they collected or better understand why an experiment may not have worked. The product immediately allows students to fix mistakes in their work and they receive real-time feedback as they type, encouraging them to critically examine their answers before submitting.
The combined solution from Hayden-McNeil Lab Solutions and Learning Science also provides educators with the ability to provide a more uniform approach to grading, a problem often realized in large college courses with multiple instructors.
"Learning Science partners with leading universities around the world who share our mission to enhance student performance through leading edge, online teaching tools. We are now excited to partner with Hayden-McNeil Lab Solutions to create a unique start-to-end solution for education providers in the US. Smart Worksheets transform the student experience with detailed, real-time, personalised and consistent feedback, allowing them to achieve their full potential by optimizing laboratory-based learning opportunities," said Bill Heslop, Managing Director, Learning Science Ltd.
Macmillan Learning became the industry's first company to become Global Certified Accessible, providing "born accessible" digital learning (ebook) options for students with disabilities.
