          I fully endorse Richard Heiberger's recommendation of the Bill Hunter articles on teaching experimental design. For a college-level semester D0E class, I had students do experiments in groups. I found it wise to have them do a preliminary presentation with a discussion of the experimental design plus their protocol for managing all the details of test materials, data collection, etc., then a final report with the results. Many students did fine, but some were clearly clueless about the whole process, which indicated a need for some adjustment in what I taught or in some individual assistance.

          If this is just a few hours or a 1-day thing, you might consider "".

	  hope this helps.
