Eilks, Ingo; Gulacar, Ozcan – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
One of the topics that chemistry teachers have a great challenge introducing is chemical equilibrium. When being introduced to chemical equilibrium, many students have difficulties in understanding that some reactions do not go to completion, as this contrasts most of their supposed prior experiences in chemistry lessons. Students may also…

Affeldt, Fiona; Meinhart, Daniel; Eilks, Ingo – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Practical work is an essential component of science education. However, insufficient approaches towards practical work can limit the potential it has for promoting both students' motivation and situational interest. One suggestion to solve this problem is to use alternative forms of lab instruction which are both motivating and easy to comprehend.…
