UChicago has first year graduate students walk through a staged lab space and then discuss as a part of their orientation. We didn't get great video this year, but is on my to do list for the next quarter. Once I get something I'm happy with I'll be sure to share.

Hi Jim - NC Bionetwork has something.  It might not be exactly what you are looking for.  They used to have a "walk through" one, but have recently changed it.

Does anyone recall a good R&D level video that does a fly-through of a lab with a multitude of "problems".   As the video is playing, we would have them identify as many problems as possible, and then have multiple group discussions as to what they saw, why they picked on particular items, and how we could more effectively cover each other's backs.  


Any suggestions?  


Thanks ... Jim

We, the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do everything with nothing. Teresa Arnold paraphrased from Konstantin Josef Jirec˙ek (1854 - 1918)
