In March 2020, when universities across the country sent students home to finish the semester remotely, laboratory learning proved challenging for many instructors. Experts in microfluidics and chemistry education from four institutions came together to design at-home laboratory experiments for introductory analytical courses that used microfluidic technology and emphasized scientific practices. The instant results of microfluidic devices allowed us to design these laboratory experiments to be inquiry-based and provide students the opportunity to engage in scientific inquiry. This project is designed to support instructors as they implement inquiry-based microfluidic laboratory experiments by providing them with a community of practice. Through this project we will assess how faculty beliefs and instructional practices change through their involvement in the MICRO project. Analysis of preliminary data from our pilot cohort provides insight into the initial beliefs and practices of analytical faculty. Early implementation results from our Fall 2020 cohort have indicated that participation in the MICRO project has been successful in helping faculty shift their practices towards more inquiry-based laboratory learning and in engaging students in the inquiry process.
