S62: Making Chemistry Palatable for Non-Chemistry Majors

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This symposia seeks to highlight the challenges, innovations, successes and failures experienced by chemistry educators whose main task involves the education of non-chemistry majors. Papers are sought that will provide insight into successful methods to motivate and educate diverse populations of students who may be either science or non-science majors but who are all non-chemistry majors. Of particular interest are educators who teach chemistry to students majoring in Nutrition, Agriculture, Biology, Nursing and the Arts. Presenters are encouraged to share their experiences with respect to pedagogical efficacy, student motivation, innovative methods of student assessment and efficient course management.

Presider: Nicole John-Thomas, University of the West Indies
