 The delivery of Labinar, which is an instructor-led and on-campus laboratory training module for lab-based engineering courses, in Heriot-Watt University (HWU) Malaysia has been stopped temporarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent campus closure. As a result, lab users were not able to equip themselves with the necessary Health & Safety knowledge, lab operations and the like, when lab spaces eventually reopened. The lab team pilots a project that transform Labinar into an online module which utilises the self-directed learning approach and incorporates elements that address the diversity and hybridity of the lab user’s interests and identities.The objectives of this project are to (1) Support lab users’ learnings with regards to proficiencies in Health & Safety, lab operations and management, as well as competencies to handle lab inventories and equipment, (2) Provide an accessible, flexible, and sustainable platform for lab users from any locations and time zones to access the learnings, (3) Foster engineering professional practice.
