Abstract

A paradigm for implementing and improving breadboard-based laboratories based on general pedagogical principals used in culinary instruction at the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, New York, is presented. The basic elements of the paradigm include a thorough pre-lab preparation by the students and instructor, and an example set-up demonstrated at the start of the lab by the instructor and made available to the students. The benefit of this paradigm is in the situation where graduate students or others with little formal teaching experience are used as lab instructors. In this situation, the structured nature of the instructor's duties is helpful in guiding the new instructor through the steps of the lab preparation and supervision.
