Using a research laboratory for training students
Author(s): Anna Consortini

Paper Abstract

We present a way to use a Research Laboratory for training students to learn about simple measurements. In most cases, doing research and training students imply conflicting requirements, for instance in a Research Laboratory everything is aligned, some equipment cannot be moved and so on; therefore research and training laboratories are separated. Sometimes however, there is the possibility of using a part or the complete research equipment by the students, without "consequences". As an example, here we describe the way we used a research set up of wave propagation through atmospheric turbulence, devoted to long lasting statistical measurements, to train students in making position measurements and experiments at different levels, starting from beginners up to advanced and PhD students.
