Redesigning Team-Based Activities in Organic Chemistry


The focus of the redesign is to reduce the D/F/W rate by improving students' attitudes about Organic Chemistry and exploring learning theory to improve their persistence. Lessons on having a growth mindset will be incorporated, as well as explicit instructions for achieving an A, B or C grade. Incentives will be given for students to form groups (Organic Learning Communities, OLC) outside of class, and structured activities will be provided for the OLCs on a weekly basis.
