Jones, Oliver A. H.; Spichkova, Maria; Spencer, Michelle J. S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Mobile technology is increasingly prevalent in higher education. Chemistry-related software applications (apps) on touchscreen computers are emerging as a popular platform in many areas, including in the chemistry classroom. In this work, a new game-based app designed for hand-held and portable touch-controlled devices is presented. Chirality-2…

Bodily, Robert; Wood, Steven – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
This paper presents the technical infrastructure required to track student use of web-based resources in an introductory chemistry course, the design of a student dashboard, and the results from analyzing student web-based resource use. Students were tracked as they interacted with online homework problems and high quality course content videos.…

Pearson, Russell J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Different approaches to the use of "clickers" (also known as student response systems) were introduced to a cohort of 127 students over a two-year period with the aim of making students think more deeply in-class about their chemistry knowledge. Student performance was monitored, and individual, anonymous student feedback was frequently…

Wilson, Sarah Beth; Varma-Nelson, Pratibha – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
Peer-led team learning (PLTL) research has expanded from its roots in program evaluation of student success measures in Workshop Chemistry to a spectrum of research questions and qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods study approaches. In order to develop recommendations for PLTL research and propose best practices for faculty who will…

Daubenfeld, Thorsten; Zenker, Dietmar – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
We designed, implemented, and evaluated a game-based learning approach to increase student motivation and achievement for an undergraduate physical chemistry course. By focusing only on the most important game aspects, the implementation was realized with a production ratio of 1:8 (study load in hours divided by production effort in hours).…
