Alison Flynn, Ph.D.

Alison thinks about students' learning... a lot! When not doing that, she plays ultimate, kayaks, bikes, skis, coaches a little soccer and hockey, and has a great time with her family.

Amanda Bongers, Ph.D. 

Postdoctoral fellow and Research Associate

I am studying how the use of technology and multimedia influences learning of organic reaction mechanisms. This project will explore how students’ understanding of symbolism changes while they learn. This is a collaboration with the Georg Northoff neuroscience group at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre.

Myriam St-Onge Carle, M.Sc.

Doctoral Student

I'm working on using technologies, such as virtual reality and augmented reality, to help visualize organic chemistry. I am also looking to "gamify" the organic chemistry learning experience.
