BOOK EXCERPT:

This hands-on workbook encourages active, collaborative learning and helps build a stronger conceptual understanding of chemistry by guiding students through self-directed explorations using POGIL (Process-Oriented Guided-Inquiry Learning). The book’s active learning activities ask students to look carefully at new problems, construct logical conclusions based on observations, and discuss the merits of their conclusions with peers. POGIL is designed to improve student retention rates and to teach students to think analytically and collaboratively in teams, like scientists do, rather than attempt to memorize the material.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Teaching Chemistry in Higher Education celebrates the contributions of Professor Tina Overton to the scholarship and practice of teaching and learning in chemistry education. Leading educators in United Kingdom, Ireland, and Australia—three countries where Tina has had enormous impact and influence—have contributed chapters on innovative approaches that are well-established in their own practice. Each chapter introduces the key education literature underpinning the approach being described. Rationales are discussed in the context of attributes and learning outcomes desirable in modern chemistry curricula. True to Tina’s personal philosophy, chapters offer pragmatic and useful guidance on the implementation of innovative teaching approaches, drawing from the authors’ experience of their own practice and evaluations of their implementation. Each chapter also offers key guidance points for implementation in readers’ own settings so as to maximise their adaptability. Chapters are supplemented with further reading and supplementary materials on the book’s website (overtonfestschrift.wordpress.com). Chapter topics include innovative approaches in facilitating group work, problem solving, context- and problem-based learning, embedding transferable skills, and laboratory education—all themes relating to the scholarly interests of Professor Tina Overton. About the Editors: Michael Seery is Professor of Chemistry Education at the University of Edinburgh, and is Editor of Chemistry Education Research and Practice. Claire Mc Donnell is Assistant Head of School of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Technological University Dublin. Cover Art: Christopher Armstrong, University of Hull

BOOK EXCERPT:

Designed for use as a supplement to a traditional text to encourage active and collaborative learning in the classroom, this activity book incorporates new methods for teaching chemistry that reflect current research on how students learn. The purpose of the guided inquiry approach is to teach you to think analytically and collaboratively in teams, like scientists do, rather than teaching you to memorize important conclusions arrived at by great scientists of the past. By looking carefully at new problems, constructing logical conclusions based on observations, and discussing the merits of your conclusions with peers, you'll develop a stronger conceptual understanding of and appreciation for the material. Honing your logical and empirical skills enables you to better pursue not only chemistry, but any other complex sets of ideas.
