George-Williams, Stephen R.; Karis, Dimitri; Ziebell, Angela L.; Kitson, Russell R. A.; Coppo, Paolo; Schmid, Siegbert; Thompson, Christopher D.; Overton, Tina L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
How students behave and learn in the teaching laboratory is a topic of great interest in chemical education, partly in order to justify the great expense of teaching laboratories. Much effort has been put into investigating how students think, feel and physically act in these unique learning environments. One such attempt was made through the…

Lu, Shanshan; Bi, Hualin; Liu, Xiufeng – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Students have various conceptions of electrolytes in learning chemistry. The aim of this study is to identify 10th grade students' understanding of the electrolyte concept by using a phenomenographic method. Eight students, whose abilities were at different levels, were selected and interviewed. The findings show that four distinctive categories…

Morais, C.; Araujo, J. L.; Saude, I. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
A storytelling approach has been seen as a powerful way to teach science and arouse interest and promote positive attitudes toward learning science in the early years. The purpose of our study was to determine how middle school students -- Key Stage 3 (KS3) aged 12-14 in Portuguese schools -- experienced learning chemistry through storytelling and…

Tan, Kim Chwee Daniel; Taber, Keith S.; Liew, Yong Qiang; Teo, Kay Liang Alan – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
The internet is prevalent in society today, and user-friendly web-based productivity tools are readily available for developing diagnostic instruments. This study sought to determine the affordances of a web-based diagnostic instrument on ionisation energy (wIEDI) based on the pen-and-paper version, the Ionisation Energy Diagnostic Instrument…

Knox, Kerry J.; Gillis, Elizabeth A. L.; Dake, Gregory R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Demands are placed on undergraduate courses in chemistry to develop transferable skills, such as teamwork, alongside subject content and technical skills. Such skills can be developed by implementing pedagogies which involve students working together. Such pedagogies can, however, pose various challenges, including unfavourable student perceptions…

Schmidt-McCormack, Jennifer A.; Judge, Jessyca A.; Spahr, Kellie; Yang, Ellen; Pugh, Raymond; Karlin, Ashley; Sattar, Atia; Thompson, Barry C.; Gere, Anne Ruggles; Shultz, Ginger V. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Acid-base chemistry is a foundational topic that is taught in courses across the chemistry curriculum. Students often have difficulty distinguishing between the different theories of acid-base chemistry--Brønsted-Lowry and Lewis acid-base chemistry--and applying these two definitions correctly in unfamiliar scenarios. To help students learn these…

Boz, Yezdan; Ekiz-Kiran, Betul; Kutucu, Elif Selcan – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
In this study, we examined the effect of School Experience (SE) and Practice Teaching (PT) courses on pre-service chemistry teachers' beliefs towards chemistry teaching over a one-year period. To reach this purpose, participants' beliefs and experiences towards chemistry teaching were monitored closely throughout the varied phases of the two…

Teke, Dilek; Sozbilir, Mustafa – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
This study aimed to identify the needs of a 10th grade congenitally blind student in an inclusive chemistry classroom and design and develop tactile materials to teach the 'energy in living systems' topic with particular emphasis on covering the symbolic language of the chemistry. A single case study design was used to carry out an in-depth and…

Zohar, Asnat R.; Levy, Sharona T. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
This work seeks to solve one of the basic problems in chemistry learning: understanding the chemical bond as a dynamic equilibrium between attractive and repulsive forces. This force-based model is difficult to grasp, as there are no analogues from everyday life for both attractions and repulsions happening simultaneously. In addition, current…

Sweeder, Ryan D.; Herrington, Deborah G.; VandenPlas, Jessica R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Simulations have changed chemistry education by allowing students to visualize the motion and interaction of particles underlying important chemical processes. With kinetics, such visualizations can illustrate how particles interact to yield successful reactions and how changes in concentration and temperature impact the number and success of…

Shah, Lisa; Rodriguez, Christian A.; Bartoli, Monica; Rushton, Gregory T. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
Instructional strategies that support meaningful student learning of complex chemical topics are an important aspect of improving chemistry education. Adequately assessing the success of these approaches can be supported with the use of aligned instruments with established psychometrics. Here, we report the implementation and assessment of one…

Schneider, Jamie L.; Ruder, Suzanne M.; Bauer, Christopher F. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
Feedback is an important aspect of the learning process. The immediate feedback assessment technique (IF-AT®) form allows students to receive feedback on their answers during a testing event. Studies with introductory psychology students supported both perceived and real student learning gains when this form was used with testing. Knowing that…

Donnelly, Julie; Hernández, Florencio E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
Physical chemistry students often have negative perceptions and low expectations for success in physical chemistry, attitudes that likely affect their performance in the course. Despite the results of several studies indicating increased positive perception of physical chemistry when active learning strategies are used, a recent survey of faculty…

Skagen, Darlene; McCollum, Brett; Morsch, Layne; Shokoples, Brandon – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
The use of online collaborative assignments (OCAs) between two flipped organic chemistry classrooms, one in Canada and the other in the United States, was examined for impact on learners. The intervention was designed to support content mastery, aid in increasing students' communication skills through chemistry drawing and verbalization,…

Miller-Friedmann, Jaimie; Childs, Ann; Hillier, Judith – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
The internationally acknowledged gender gap in science continues to be an unrelenting concern to science educators; aggregate data in the UK show that both recruitment and retention of women in academic science remain relatively low. Most published research focuses on women in the broad field of science, generates correlations or predictions, or…
