Participate in a research study!
The Flynn group is always seeking volunteers to participate in our research studies. We look for undergraduate students taking chemistry courses, and also graduate students and professors in Departments of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences. Please check below for our current research studies and recruitment needs.
We are conducting studies on how students learn organic reaction mechanisms. Our goal is to investigate the impact of a change to the curriculum to further improve student learning and success in chemistry. Research with past participants have had large impacts; you can read more of our studies here. The uOttawa Heath Science and Science Research Ethics Board granted permission to conduct this research.
To participate in this study, you would sit down with a member of our research group for a one-on-one interview where the researcher would ask you to complete some tasks about organic reaction mechanisms, then ask you follow-up questions about the tasks. The interview would be audio and video recorded, and some of our studies involve eye-tracking (the computer’s camera tracks eye movements). Your responses would be confidential and you would be given a pseudonym to protect your identity.
Everyone who participates in will receive a $10 Tim Horton's or Starbucks gift card. Participation is voluntary, will not affect your course grade, and your professor will not know if you participate.
