Driving Student Success: A Toolbox of Big Strategies and Little Tricks

For many students, first- and second-year chemistry courses present a significant barrier to their long-term success. Thoughtful course design and active-learning techniques can reduce this barrier, by providing environments where students are able to practice key skills and concepts at a granular level, building a foundation for success in higher-level classes. This presentation will highlight several approaches – both pedagogical techniques and new digital tools - to help students engage with chemistry in active, inquiry-driven environments.
