Henry, Renee Monica – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Reported here is a study of an interactive component to General Chemistry I and General Chemistry II where a new pedagogy for taking notes in class was developed. These notes, called key word created class notes, prompted students to locate information using the Internet guided by a key word. Reference Web sites were added to a next generation of…

Gozzi, Christel; Arnoux, Marie-Jose´; Breuzard, Jere´my; Marchal, Claire; Nikitine, Clémence; Renaudat, Alice; Toulgoat, Fabien – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
Literature searches are essential for scientists. Thus, courses on how to do a good literature search have been integrated in studies at CPE Lyon for many years. Recently, we modified our pedagogical approach in order to initiate students progressively in the search for chemical information. In addition, this new teaching organization is now based…

Burrmann, Nicola J.; Moore, John W. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
The implementation of a web-based stereochemistry tutorial, which allows students to select their preferred structural representation and method for making stereochemical comparisons between molecules, is discussed. The tutorial was evaluated by students in three different introductory organic chemistry courses at a large midwestern university.…

Saxena, Sachin; Satsangee, Soami P. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2014
Remote access to real experiments is crucial for distance learners to experience the sciences. The exploitation of technology for this purpose is advantageous in global teaching and in exchange of ideas on a single front irrespective of distance barriers. Implementation of the distance method leads to cost-effective integrated-e-learning where…

Moore, Emily B.; Chamberlain, Julia M.; Parson, Robert; Perkins, Katherine K. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2014
Developing fluency across symbolic-, macroscopic-, and particulate-level representations is central to learning chemistry. Within the chemistry education community, animations and simulations that support multi-representational fluency are considered critical. With advances in the accessibility and sophistication of technology,…

Benedict, Lucille A.; Champlin, David T.; Pence, Harry E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2013
Google Docs was used to create the rip-mix-learn (RML) classroom in two, first-year undergraduate introductory chemistry and biology courses, a second-semester introductory chemistry course, and an upper-level developmental biology course. This "transmedia" approach assigned students to create sets of collaborative lecture notes into…

Behmke, Derek A.; Atwood, Charles H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2012
Previous research has linked poor student performance with the depersonalized feeling of large lecture courses. Various forms of enhanced communication have been tried that appear to enhance personalization in large courses. For general chemistry classes taught in a 365-seat lecture hall at the University of Georgia, we have attempted to enhance…

Hamstra, Dan; Kemsley, Jyllian N.; Murray, Desmond H.; Randall, David W. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2011
We report successfully integrating webinar and blogging into an undergraduate chemistry and biochemistry seminar course. Commercial collaboration software linked speaker-operated slides with two-way voice and video effectively connecting the audience and presenter from different states. Student responses to the technology and seminar content were…

Battle, Gary M.; Allen, Frank H.; Ferrence, Gregory M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2011
Parts 1 and 2 of this series described the educational value of experimental three-dimensional (3D) chemical structures determined by X-ray crystallography and retrieved from the crystallographic databases. In part 1, we described the information content of the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) and discussed a representative teaching subset of…

Williams, Antony J.; Pence, Harry E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2011
Cell phones, especially "smart phones", seem to have become ubiquitous. Actually, it is misleading to call many of these devices phones, as they are actually a portable and powerful computer that can be very valuable in the chemistry classroom. Currently, there are three major ways in which smart phones can be used for education. Smart phones…

Kottonau, Johannes – Journal of Chemical Education, 2011
Effectively teaching the concepts of osmosis to college-level students is a major obstacle in biological education. Therefore, a novel computer model is presented that allows students to observe the random nature of particle motion simultaneously with the seemingly directed net flow of water across a semipermeable membrane during osmotic…

Battle, Gary M.; Allen, Frank H.; Ferrence, Gregory M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2010
A series of online interactive teaching units have been developed that illustrate the use of experimentally measured three-dimensional (3D) structures to teach fundamental chemistry concepts. The units integrate a 500-structure subset of the Cambridge Structural Database specially chosen for their pedagogical value. The units span a number of key…

Tofan, Daniel C. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2010
Microsoft OneNote 2007 is a very powerful program that can be used for electronic delivery of chemistry lectures. Its features make it much more versatile than PowerPoint. Documents can be organized in a structured manner, and annotations can be easily added. Links to Web sites can be included and accessed on the fly. Clippings from external…

Pence, Laura E.; Pence, Harry E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2009
Social tagging, familiar to most students because of the great popularity of YouTube and Flickr, has emerged as a social networking tool for organizing the vast quantities of information available on the Internet. We incorporated one of the more popular social tagging utilities, del.icio.us, as a teaching tool in two different chemistry classes.…
