S15: Student-Centered Learning with a Focus on Improving Process Skills in the Classroom and Laboratory: Strategies for Structuring Student-Centered Learning and Organic Chemistry Implementation

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The purpose of this symposium is to bring together practitioners of a variety of student-centered pedagogies (such as PBL, PLTL, POGIL, or TBL), from high school through university level. Emphasis will be placed on those approaches that require students to be actively engaged on a regular basis, with a focus on improving process skills such as communication, teamwork, critical thinking, or problem solving. Presentations that contain assessment of these student-centered approaches are especially welcome.

Presider: Suzanne Ruder, Virginia Commonwealth University
