Adopt-A-Molecule: A guided Inquiry for Increasing Student Interest in Organic Chemistry

Date: April 15, 2010
Creator: Musgrave, Paul & Dandekar, Sushama Ashok
Description: This presentation discusses research on the Adopt-A-Molecule project. Adopt-A-Molecule was a 9-week long, two-part term project, undertaken by students enrolled in the first of the two-semester sequence in organic chemistry (Fall 2009). This newly developed project was an attempt to increase students' interest in organic chemistry by giving them semester-long opportunities to actively explore a range of organic compounds and their varied applications in the real world.

Teaching Students Organic Chemistry: QEP III Next Generation Course Redesign™

Teaching Students Organic Chemistry: QEP III Next Generation Course Redesign™

Date: April 15, 2010
Creator: Lavezo, Jonathan L. & Dandekar, Sushama Ashok
Description: This paper discusses research on teaching students organic chemistry. During the summer of 2009, Dr. Dandekar, and a group of undergraduate researchers worked to redesign CHEM 2370 - Organic Chemistry I. The learning outcomes for the course were reassessed, and then matched to all exam materials. After determining the student learning outcomes were tested effectively, a proposed analysis of the course was examined. An overview of the redesigned course material, and the philosophy of learning used in the redesign is also discussed.
