Man, Fung Fun – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
Technology-enhanced learning (TEL) is fast gaining momentum among educational institutions all over the world. The usual way in which laboratory instructional videos are filmed takes the third-person view. However, such videos are not as realistic and sensorial. With the advent of Google Glass and GoPro cameras, a more personal and effective way…

Richards-Babb, Michelle; Penn, John H.; Withers, Michelle – Journal of Chemical Education, 2014
Providing chemistry graduate students with opportunities to learn about evidence-based teaching and to practice teaching skills in a mentored environment is crucial to their professional development. Herein is described the model for a graduate-level teaching practicum course specifically focused on the chemistry discipline. This course addressed…

Ward, Alexandra M.; Wyllie, Graeme R. A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
We report here a second semester general chemistry laboratory project themed around chitosan-alginate bioplastics. With increasing awareness of plastic pollution in the environment and the awareness of the importance for materials which are either made from renewable resources or are biodegradable, this topic provides a relevant opportunity to…

Cacciatore, Kristen L.; Sevian, Hannah – Journal of Chemical Education, 2009
Many institutions are responding to current research about how students learn science by transforming their general chemistry laboratory curricula to be inquiry-oriented. We present a comparison study of student performance after completing either a traditional or an inquiry stoichiometry experiment. This single laboratory experience was the only…

Fuller, Amelia A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
A five-week, research-based experiment suitable for second-semester introductory organic laboratory students is described. Each student designs, prepares, and analyzes a combinatorial array of six aromatic oligoamides. Molecules are prepared on solid phase via a six-step synthetic sequence, and purities and identities are determined by analysis of…

Hesser, Tiffany L.; Gregory, Jess L. – Higher Education Studies, 2015
It is not uncommon for students to find themselves underprepared when entering a post secondary institution. In additional to lower levels of academic achievement, underprepared students may not be aware that they lack the skills needed to be successful and effectively acquire and process information. Because of this, students that enter…

Pease, Rebecca Simpson – ProQuest LLC, 2012
Elaborative interrogation, which prompts students to answer why-questions placed strategically within informational text, has been shown to increase learning comprehension through reading. In this study, elaborative interrogation why-questions requested readers to explain why paraphrased statements taken from a reading were "true."…

Ramstedt, Madeleine; Hedlund, Tomas; Björn, Erik; Fick, Jerker; Jahnke, Isa – Education Inquiry, 2016
A range of factors can lead to situations where university courses have to be taught with a very small number of students. In this paper, we report on our experiences of a chemistry course that was especially designed to encourage learning in small groups of students (four to five per course). The course design included inquiry-based approaches,…

Laureano, Roselle A.; Espinosa, Allen A.; Avilla, Ruel A. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2015
The study was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of Grade 9 Science Learner's Material on self-regulation and achievement of students in Chemistry. Specifically, it sought to find out if: (1) students exposed to Grade 9 Science Learner's Material (Grade 9 LM) have higher self-regulation in chemistry compared to those who were exposed to…

Schnitzer, Cheryl S.; Reim, Candace Lawson; Sirois, John J.; House, Paul G. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2010
Advanced chemistry students are introduced to surface-enhanced resonance Raman scattering (SERRS) by studying how sodium copper chlorophyllin (CuChl) adsorbs onto silver colloids (CuChl/Ag) as a function of pH. Using both SERRS and visible extinction spectroscopy, the extent of CuChl adsorption and colloidal aggregation are monitored. Initially at…

McKenzie, Lallie C.; Huffman, Lauren M.; Hutchison, James E.; Rogers, Courtney E.; Goodwin, Thomas E.; Spessard, Gary O. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2009
A major approach for implementing green chemistry is the discovery and development of synthetic strategies that reduce the quantity of solvent needed, eliminate it altogether, or rely on new reaction media. An increasing number of examples have demonstrated that greener reaction solvents or media can enhance performance as well as reduce hazard.…

Ayyildiz, Yildizay; Tarhan, Leman – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2013
This study aims at investigating the effects of case studies developed by the researchers on Science Teaching students' understanding of "gases, liquids and solids," and their attitudes towards chemistry lessons. The study was conducted on 52 freshmen from the Department of Science Teaching at a university in Turkey. Pre-test and…

Bamidele, E. F.; Oloyede, E. O. – World Journal of Education, 2013
This study investigated the relative effectiveness of three types of concept maps (hierarchy, flowchart and spider) on the performance of students in Chemistry. This is with a view to find out which of the concept mapping types is more superior in enhancing students' performance in the numerical aspect of Chemistry. The pre-test, post-test…

Ng, Karno – Journal of Educators Online, 2018
Online courses provide flexibility and convenience for students and have become very popular in recent years. With the advance of technology and change of habits for the uses of traditional communication tools among students, there is a need for educators to explore effective ways to communicate with students that fit their social-media life…
