Fung, Fun Man; Choo, Wen Yi; Ardisara, Alvita; Zimmermann, Christoph Dominik; Watts, Simon; Koscielniak, Thierry; Blanc, Etienne; Coumoul, Xavier; Dumke, Rainer – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Field trips are a common activity for instructors to engage students and give them a first-hand understanding of a subject, especially in environmental chemistry. However, the planning and execution for a field trip is logistically challenging and demanding of human and material resources. Here, we demonstrate the conduct of a virtual overseas…

Pratt, Justin M.; Yezierski, Ellen J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
College students associated with the American Chemical Society and Alpha Chi Sigma student/collegiate chapters reach almost 1 million people every year through their informal chemistry education events (chemistry outreach). Previous work has characterized their goals for chemistry outreach, with the most prevalent goal being audience learning.…

Carmel, Justin H.; Herrington, Deborah G.; Posey, Lynmarie A.; Ward, Joseph S.; Pollock, Amy M.; Cooper, Melanie M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Over the past 20 years research on reform efforts aimed at the chemistry laboratory has focused on different aspects of students' experiences including increasing content knowledge, improving student attitudes toward chemistry, incorporating inquiry activities, and providing students a hands-on experience related to the chemistry concepts learned…

Hubbard, Brittany A.; Jones, Grayson C.; Gallardo-Williams, Maria T. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
As a means to encourage engagement in a large introductory organic chemistry class, students were tasked with the creation of digital tutorials for specific problems sourced from the assigned class textbook. Students had the freedom to choose how to produce their tutorials as long as the final product was a digital object suitable for sharing with…

Schneider, Elia M.; Bärtsch, Amadeus; Stark, Wendelin J.; Grass, Robert N. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A simple synthesis of fluorescent carbon quantum dots from lemon juice is described to introduce advanced high-school students and undergraduate college students to nanoparticle synthesis and quantum dots. The synthesis is based on the carbonization of lemon juice using only a hot plate stirrer. Column chromatography is used to separate different…

Ramachandran, Roshini; Sparck, Erin M.; Levis-Fitzgerald, Marc – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Numerous online resources provide a variety of content for a wide range of STEM topics; however, they tend to function as isolated tidbits that provide content-specific knowledge. Application-based science education videos address the overlooked issue of concept to application by implementing experimental components in their videos and fostering…

Lazenby, Katherine; Rupp, Charlie A.; Brandriet, Alexandra; Mauger-Sonnek, Kathryn; Becker, Nicole M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Understanding the nature and purpose of models, including mathematical models, is critical to enabling undergraduate chemistry students to use models to predict and explain phenomena. However, students often do not have systematic conceptions about different kinds of models. To gain a sense of how students understand different models in the…

Parsons, Andrew F. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Retrosynthetic analysis is a topic that presents significant conceptual challenges to students. To enable a more active learning of introductory retrosynthesis, we implemented a flipped approach, delivered over a 4 year period, to a class size of between 18 and 29 biochemistry students per year. This provided more time for in-class peer group…

Vergne, Matthew J.; Simmons, Joshua D.; Bowen, Ryan S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
An escape-room-game activity was introduced to foster team building and collaborative learning in a laboratory-experiment setting. The students were placed in a laboratory with clues and puzzles that required the students to use a sequence of analytical instruments in the laboratory in order to escape. The instruments utilized included a UV-vis…

Niemeyer, Emily D.; Zewail-Foote, Maha – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
The use of electronic response pads or "clickers" is a popular way to engage students and create an active-learning environment, especially within large chemistry courses. We examined students' perceptions of how the clicker affected their learning, participation, and engagement in the classroom, as well as their overall experience…

Herrington, Deborah G.; Sweeder, Ryan D. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Recent articles in this "Journal" have advocated for focusing instruction on core ideas of the discipline and moving assessment beyond content knowledge to also eliciting evidence about what students can do with their knowledge. Yet, the deep connected learning supported by this kind of instruction and assessment requires students to…

Budke, Michael; Parchmann, Ilka; Beeken, Marco – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
In the past 20 years, science education in schools has increasingly been supported by extracurricular learning opportunities. From the point of view of pupils and teachers, student laboratories make meaningful contributions to complement the teaching of science. Studies have shown that participation in student laboratories has increased students'…

Masania, Jinit; Grootveld, Martin; Wilson, Philippe B. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Analytical chemistry has often been a difficult subject to teach in a classroom or lecture-based context. Numerous strategies for overcoming the inherently practical-based difficulties have been suggested, each with differing pedagogical theories. Here, we present a combined approach to tackling the problem of teaching analytical chemistry, with…

Pratt, Justin M.; Yezierski, Ellen J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Little scholarly investigation of chemistry outreach carried out by undergraduate students in schools and communities has occurred despite widespread practice and monetary investment by large national and international organizations. This study provides the first investigation of these fairly uncharted waters by characterizing expected outcomes of…

Boyd-Kimball, Debra; Miller, Keith R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Laboratory courses are often designed using step-by-step protocols which encourage students to conduct experiments without thinking about what they are doing or why they are doing it. Such course design limits the growth of our students as scientists and can make it more difficult for a student to transition to the expectations of a research…
