Om boka

The application of new methods for engaging students with content is complicated by the lack of real-life models. This work provides the reader with rich examples of ways that faculty have implemented videos to help students prepare for classwork. Describing the practical use of tools, such as SMART boards and iPad apps, chapters serve as how-to manuals to support faculty looking to put these tools into practice in their chemistry courses, from high school and
general chemistry to analytical chemistry and special topics.

Om forfatteren

Jessica Parr has been involved in instruction in General Chemistry since 1999. First serving as a peer instructor as an undergraduate student, working throughout graduate school as a teaching assistant in the laboratory space and discussion sections, she is now teaching faculty at the University of Southern California. She has worked with all levels of students, from the least prepared, who have never had any instruction in chemistry, to the most
prepared, who have scored a five on their Advanced Placement exams. Jessica has also worked as a mentor for undergraduate students awarded research fellowships through the Women in Science and Engineering Program and has been recognized with university wide mentoring awards for her efforts. She is responsible for
organizing professional development programming and speaker series to engage the students in research activities. In 2018 she was named a Dornsife Science Transformation Fellow to redesign the second semester general chemistry experience.

Rather than the traditional lecture and lab model, students in the discovery course perform short experiments and hands-on activities every day in the laboratory space. The entire semester involves active learning and increased student engagement. She is also working to ease the transition between general and organic chemistry, with the ultimate goal being to better prepare students for all future classes in chemistry and improve retention of course material. Jessica is committed to making
chemistry more accessible to everyone and to increasing science literacy.
