Engaging Students in Organic Chemistry: A Symposium to Honor Barbara Murray
Engaging students in organic chemistry is a critical task for an instructor. The material in the traditional one year sequence is foundational for upper level science courses. When students are engaged in learning the fundamental concepts in organic chemistry, they both appreciate the content and identify its applications to other areas. In this symposium, authors share methods for engaging students in organic chemistry. These methods may range from creative activities for individual class topics to pedagogical models utilized over an academic year. Laboratory experiments, writing assignments, lessons that incorporate inclusive language, and innovative assignments are also included.
