What general learning outcomes for laboratories are needed for Work 4.0? How can they be integrated into a checklist, so laboratory developers can integrate them into their labs? This paper describes the work-in-progress of the CrossLab project in terms of providing easy tools for laboratory pedagogy.

abstract="Due to the possibilities of digitalization, the world of work is undergoing a profound change towards Industry 4.0 and related Learning and Working 4.0. In this context, new competences are expected from employees, which must also be addressed in STEM disciplines, especially in higher engineering education. Lab courses are particularly suitable for this, because here students can actively work on devices and potentially cyber-physical systems. This contribution is the undertaking of a group of lab teachers from various disciplines working on the joint project CrossLab to formulate what they consider the important aspects of lab teaching as learning outcomes for Industry 4.0. Furthermore, as a final goal, they will be transferred into a checklist that can be used in the implementation of existing and newly designed lab experiments with regard to the required competences of Learning and Working 4.0. Constructive Alignment forms the pedagogical framework, in which intended learning outcomes, teaching--learning activities and learning outcome monitoring must be thought through and planned as a whole. The checklist will extend an existing checklist for the thirteen conventional fundamental lab learning-objectives according to Feisel and Rosa. This work in progress describes first results of this attempt.",
