The rising pressure to make online course offerings in the sciences available is a fact of life at many of our institutions; in many places, science faculty have been the last to seriously consider the necessity our institutions are placing on bringing online course delivery to our coursework. For-profit educational providers have stepped into this vacuum and provided a host of options for student learning that are in many ways extractive, and place focus on the corporate bottom line rather than lifelong student learning. But experience with the natural world should not be confined to a laboratory, and in fact should be accessible to students freely not merely within a specific course, but beyond. This talk proposes models for laboratory engagement in the sciences that can be accessible to students both in general-education science coursework for nonmajors and in specific freshman/sophomore preparatory coursework for majors, models that make use both of openly accessible online simulation of physical phenomena and strategic assignments to record and explain observation of the same phenomena in the natural world. Specific models of implementation for these tactics in Tusculum College online coursework will be described.
