The laboratory notebook is the cornerstone of any laboratory course. Students develop critical thinking, documentation, and communication skills while mastering scientific concepts. Furthermore, the use of electronic lab notebooks (ELNs) for documentation has become the standard for data management in industry and academic labs. 

Replacing paper with an interactive research notebook provides students with authentic data management skills. It also offers a medium for easily incorporating quantitative reasoning into the curriculum to address real. Instructors using digital notebooks in their courses reported a significant increase in student engagement and assessment scores.

In this workshop, we will explore the current ELNs landscape and best practices for moving from paper to digital.
