ConfChem Conference on Flipped Classroom: Spring 2014 ConfChem Virtual Poster Session
Belford, Robert E.; Stoltzfus, Matthew; Houseknecht, Justin B.
Journal of Chemical Education, v92 n9 p1582-1583 Sep 2015
This communication describes the virtual poster session of the Flipped Classroom online ConfChem conference that was hosted by the ACS CHED Committee on Computers in Chemical Education (CCCE) from May 9 to June 12, 2014. During the conference's online discussions, it became evident that multiple participants who were not presenting papers had been involved with various flipped activities that could also be presented. So the CCCE decided to run an experiment, and half way through the conference put forth a call for presentations for a general poster session during the last week of the conference. The idea was to allow anyone involved with flipped classroom activities the opportunity to present their work during the ConfChem. An announcement was made half way through the conference and three participants were able to generate the following posters for the session: (i) A Year of Organic Chemistry Group Work with iPads, by Justin Houseknecht; (ii) Implementing Peer Instruction in a Flipped General Chemistry Classroom, by Matthew Stoltzfus; and (iii) Can Flipping Introduce New Cognitive Artifacts to the Classroom?, by Robert E. Belford. This communication starts with a description of a virtual poster session as a form of scientific communication, followed by a brief description of the topics of each of the three posters, and a brief discussion of our experience with this experiment in scientific communications. The complete posters and discussions are attached to this communication as Supporting Information.
