Assessments: Thinking Creatively
Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2-3 p.m.
This session is a part of CITL Instructor Series.
Building on the success of his MUNTLC22 conference session, Dr. Chris Kozak, Professor from the Department of Chemistry, is back to share more about his experience with implementing Creative Chemistry Assignments with Art, Music and Writing. Chemistry is a visual science of impressive experiments and models describing complex molecules, structures and processes. It is also about storytelling – discoveries and facts come from intellectual journeys. While chemistry to some is exciting, to others it is daunting and unfamiliar. Students of first year chemistry have a mixture of excitement and anticipation but also dread and feelings of being unprepared. To ease students into learning chemistry, assignments were designed to use their creative skills and apply them to communicate chemistry using visual, musical or written media. The student response to these Creative Chemistry Assignments will be presented.
Presenter: Dr. Chris Kozak, Professor, Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science.
