CINCH_approved_100x91.jpgHere a list of Nuclear and Radiochemistry (NRC) Laboratory Exercises is provided. The list is organized according to topic. The exercises have been collected from and/or submitted by universities that have used the exercise in question in their actual laboratory teaching. The idea behind providing this list here at NucWik is that NRC teachers and institutions should collaborate and help each other to provide better exercises and teaching. In particular we encourage all teachers (and students!) to provide feedback on exercises they have used in order improve the exercise and to help other teachers in using the exercise. Please use the pages comment tool for feedback (you have to be a registered NucWik user - don't worry, it's free!) or send e-mail to NucWik-post@kjemi.uio.no.

The exercises are in different state of readiness: Ideally we would like each to have "plug and play" readiness. Then it should have a thorough description, student guides, teacher guides, links to relevant textbook sections and/or compendia (made available through NucWik), equipment list, safety evaluation, etc., etc. If in addition the exercise has been review by an independent NRC teacher approved by the CINCH project, it will have the "CINCH Approved" stamp to certify its quality and completeness. Many exercises haven't reached this stage of preparedness but is of course still included - the thought is that everybody will contribute to improve them until they reaches "plug and play" readiness and "CINCH Approved" quality status.

Introductory laboratory exercises: In these laboratory exercises the student are introduced to basic NRC concepts. They teach the student how to perform contamination checks, safe working procedures, etc. and everything else they need to have at least a basic knowledge about before they start on more complicated exercises.

Detection and measurement techniques and instruments: These exercises describe the different ways that radioactivity can be detected. They explain the the advantage and the disadvantages with different detection techniques.

Radioecology and environmental related laboratory exercises:

Other type of exercises: Exercises that do not fit into any of the above categories.

Robolab Exercises: This is a special type of laboratory exercises where the phycial laboratory is accessed through a web-interface providing remote control of the equipment. It allows studets access to facilities they might not have available at their own university or it can be used to preparation for real "hands-on" exercises.

Feedback

As always, we would much like to receive comments, suggestions, corrections, etc. Please provide such on the assosiated comment pages or send an e-mail to NucWik-post@kjemi.uio.no. Likewise if you have developed your own CSE exercises - please share your work with the NucWik community!
