S56: Engaging Students in Physical Chemistry

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

Presentations in this symposium may include new laboratory or classroom exercises, new approaches to the structure of the physical chemistry curriculum, active learning pedagogies, the inclusion of contemporary research topics in the curriculum, and the interface of physical chemistry with other disciplines.  Discussions will include issues in the physical chemistry curriculum and strategies to improve student engagement.

Presider: Craig Teague, Cornell College

Craig Teague

Associate Professor, Cornell College
I teach physical chemistry, general chemistry, and other courses in the undergraduate curriculum. I also do student/faculty research. I am interested in active learning, especially through Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning. My student/faculty research centers on investigations of molecular interactions at the nanoscale, mostly to address energy-related questions.
