The pedagogical benefits and pitfalls of virtual tools for teaching and learning laboratory practices in the Biological Sciences

This project critically reviewed the pedagogical benefits and pitfalls of this increased use of virtual laboratory tools across the Biological Sciences both within the UK and internationally.
