We conduct chemistry education research and create innovative tools and methods to support student learning
Our research in chemistry education is in a type of discipline-based education research. In the group, we study students’ chemistry concepts, design new teaching and learning methods, and more! Explore the site for more details or watch the video below.
With the new STEM building hitting a major construction milestone, the Flynn research group added their signatures to the outer structure’s final beam during Sept 14th’s "topping off" ceremony.
We have three new group members! Emily O'Connor is working on the Self-Regulated Learning Modules development and evaluation project. Annie Znotinas is joining as an Honours student on a CER project. Keith Lapierre is a new graduate student in the group. Welcome!
The Flynn Research Group wanted to enjoy one last group lunch together before some of our members say goodbye for the summer.
Alison attended STLHE Halifax in June! Read more to learn about her experiences at the conference, including a workshop that took place on the water!
We are excited to announce that Alison has received funding from the University of Ottawa for creating online learning modules!
Thank you Resa Kelly for meeting with the Flynn Research group over Skype this week to learn more about the effect that comparing molecular animations of varying accuracy has on students’ submicroscopic explanations!
The Flynn Research Group had the opportunity to meet with Steve Danczak via Skype to learn more about his research on critical thinking in chemistry!
Congratulations to Amanda, Rebecca, and Michael on their graduation from the Faculty of Science at the University of Ottawa!
Congratulations to Nik! He won the first place oral presentation award in the Chemistry Education Division at the CSC 2017 conference!
