Active Learning in Organic Chemistry Remote Workshop Application (Tu/Th June 1-17, 2021)
Organic Education Resources ( invites Organic Chemistry instructors to apply to our Summer ā€™21 remote NSF-sponsored workshop (award numbers: DUE2021170, DUE2021175, DUE2021285). Enrollment in this no-cost workshop will be limited to 30 participants to promote collaborative activities and community building for a diverse group of faculty. Experienced members of the OrganicERs Leadership Board will introduce and facilitate implementation of evidence-based instructional methods. This workshop is designed for organic chemistry instructors who want to effectively implement or improve their use of active learning methods in their classrooms.

Participants will:
-Become part of a community of over 700 instructors committed to evidence-based instructional methods in organic chemistry,
-Improve their understanding of these methods by experiencing them as students and by working collaboratively to develop learning activities that conform to best-practice,
-Discuss common hurdles and solutions to effective implementation,
-Engage in a thematic one-year online faculty learning community with a half-dozen like-minded organic chemistry instructors from across the country.

Topics include:
-Learning objective development and use,
-Preparing students for the active-learning classroom,
-Classroom assessment and collaborative learning techniques including classroom response systems,
-Open educational resources,
-Active learning, including in large classrooms,
-The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning,
-Application of cognitive psychology in teaching organic chemistry,
-Introduction of new teaching methods to students and colleagues.
