Laboratory classes

Although the term ‘laboratory’ often conjures up images of scientists in white coats feverishly working away mixing chemicals in test tubes, there are broader applications in education. In language and linguistics, for example, students are often exposed to laboratory classes that involve the use of audio-visual equipment. Psychology also involves laboratory work of various kinds, such as the study of human responses to various stimuli.Another subject discipline that uses laboratories is sports science, where the subjects being studied are often the students themselves, experimenting with exercise equipment to investigate human physiology.
