Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning
The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL)’s mission is to enhance excellence in undergraduate education through the development of a national faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse learners as part of successful and varied professional careers. It was established with the intent of preparing future science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) faculty across the nation, to ultimately improve the STEM learning of all students, at every college and university, and thereby to increase the diversity in STEM fields and the STEM literacy of the nation. The three CIRTL core ideas are Evidence-based Teaching, Learning Communities, and Learning-through-Diversity.

Abstract

Herein describes the reasoning behind the approach and the employment of the present web-based course content in two of the undergraduate organic chemistry laboratory courses at the department of chemistry, Iowa State University (ISU). The design utilizes both virtual and in-person educational rudiments to enhance students' overall learning experience. This paper aims to assist the two courses overall and other instructors seeking to improve the effectiveness of their teaching.
