At the 2011 ChemEd Conference at Western Michigan University, I gave four presentations on teaching and learning in chemistry.

  • Before, Change, After (BCA) Tables - A Cognitivist Methodology for Teaching Stoichiometry
  • The Density Dunk: A Problem-Based Learning Strategy to Teaching the Density Concept
  • Making Thinking Visible: Using Whiteboards in the Chemistry Classroom
  • "For Every" Speak: A Concrete Operational Approach to Teaching Dimensional Analysis
The handouts and presentations for each of these presentations can be found here.

You may feel free to contact me with any questions regarding the presentations or documents, or drop me a note on Twitter.
