meet the group
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.
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.
Nicholas Bodé, B.Sc.
I am working on students’ problem-solving approaches to organic synthesis, with the goal of informing instruction at the undergraduate level.
My research investigates how students interpret organic chemistry reactions, and the impact of the newly implemented curriculum on these interpretations.
I am working on using eye tracking technology to help explore how experts and undergraduate chemistry students understand chemistry symbolism.
Research Assistant, Self-Regulated Learning Project
