“Bridging the achievement gap in organic chemistry: three approaches”

Hosted by Joel Karty


Organic Chemistry is plagued by a significant achievement gap among students entering the course, and left unchecked, that achievement gap can lead to high DFW rates for underrepresented populations.

In this workshop, Joel Karty will take instructors through the three-pronged approach that he's adopted to promote equity in his Organic Chemistry courses: (1) A mechanistic organization, (2) A flipped classroom that incorporates videos embedded in the textbook for pre-class preparation, and Smartwork for in-class mechanism problems, and (3) specifications grading.

He'll present observations and outcomes, and we’ll save time for contributions from attendees.
