2015 Mini-grant Project

It is proposed that the Chemistry department purchase a new set of “clickers” or Personal Response Systems. This will allow the continued transformation of the chemistry classroom environment into an “Active Learning Classroom” or ALC. A growing number of teachers in the Chemistry department do use an aging set of clickers, and many others have expressed interest in incorporating them into their classrooms. The wider adoption of this system is impeded as scheduling interferes with the availability of this pedagogical tool.
