Participate in a research study!
As researchers in the Chemistry Education Research group we’re constantly working to improve education through research. We are always seeking volunteers to participate in our research studies. We look for undergraduate students taking chemistry courses, and also graduate students and professors in the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences. The results of this research will be used to improve current organic chemistry learning. Your participation is important to help make this project a success! Please check below for our current research studies and recruitment needs.
1) USING BRAIN IMAGING TO STUDY LEARNING
How to participate: fill out this form – https://goo.gl/forms/61cHSjLixavnLuJI3
Who can participate: students who are or have been enrolled in CHM1301/1311, 1701/1711, 1321/1721, 2120/2520.
Note: the study will only take place in English.
Do you think organic chemistry is a challenging topic? You’re not alone! Organic chemistry is filled with symbolism that represents the reactivity of molecules, which can be confusing. This is why our next study involves brain imaging while students learn a new reaction mechanism. Participants will receive an amazon.ca gift certificate as compensation for their time.
