Thomas, Ashleigh L. P.
Journal of Chemical Education, v94 n12 p2013-2015 Dec 2017
This paper presents gradual implementation of active learning approaches in an organic chemistry classroom based on student feedback and strategies for getting students on-board with this new approach. Active learning techniques discussed include videos, online quizzes, reading assignments, and classroom activities. Preliminary findings indicate a significant increase in American Chemical Society standardized exam scores after implementation of select active learning techniques. This Communication summarizes one of the invited papers to the Select 2016 BCCE Presentations ACS CHED Committee on Computers in Chemical Education online ConfChem held from October 30 to November 22, 2016.
