1. Purpose – what is “LifeLabOnline.org” and what can it be used for?
LifeLab is a unique initiative created by the University of Southampton in collaboration with the National Institute for Health Research, Southampton Biomedical Research Centre and University Hospital Southampton. Our programmes include on site educational experiences at the LifeLab education centre, work experience, research studies, teacher professional development, opportunities for scientists to train and take part in our programmes and fully resourced educational programmes provided for in-school delivery.
LifeLab's mission is to empower children and young people, through scientific discovery, to make positive lifestyle choices for their health, wellbeing and resilience and for that of children they may have in the future.
The learning platform is a free educational platform developed by LifeLab for teachers, students, parents and carers, and researchers which enables us to share LifeLab programmes and resources across the UK and wider afield, ultimately educating and empowering children and young people for lifelong health.
The Learning Platform provides programmes (courses) which are broken down into modules (lessons) and activities. The Learning Platform hosts LifeLab resources which are available to view or download (such as PowerPoints, videos and PDFs) and online learning modules for interactive learning (e.g. self-directed learning for students). Depending on how the programme is structured, resources are open access (available for all to view and use), password protected (we will provide you with the details) or for registered users only.
