Observe an Award Winning Teaching: Dr. Jennifer O'Brien In-Person

Observe Dr. Jennifer O'Brien, a 2018 Provost's Teaching Recognition Award winner, instruct students enrolled in her CHEM 1113: General Chemistry Laboratory class. During this lab session, we cover the basics of molecular geometry (the science of how molecules acquire their 3-dimensional shapes). Students in this lab are able to connect the concepts they are learning in lecture with the natural world. For example, they learn why some molecules contribute to climate change, while others do not. Using kits, the students create 3-dimensional structures of the molecules they have studied during the term. The teaching techniques include using physical models and fun analogies to help connect abstract concepts to current events. For more information about the class, see the course description below. Note: only one person may register to observe this class session. 

Course description: Chem 1113 is the first semester of the general chemistry lab that accompanies the chemistry lecture. In this lab, students learn the basics of the laboratory techniques and methods necessary for scientific inquiry and problem solving, including practical operations with measuring, reacting, filtering, and titrating chemicals.
