Learning Labs

Learning labs are designed to promote conceptual understanding and deeper engagement in problem solving for small groups. Each learning lab will consist of a 90-minute session, where attendees will engage through discussion and activities surrounding the topic.
We are offering six Learning Labs in Cleveland this year. These Labs are part of our technical program and are included in your conference registration.

The NCSLI conference committee is building the 2020 technical program. If you have a metrology course of interest and would like to instruct a Learning Lab, reach out to us at callforpapers@ncsli.org
