Spacing, Retrieval, and Testing: Using Digital Tools to Enhance Learning in Online Introductory Chemistry Courses

View all tags

Join Dr. Nivaldo J. Tro of Santa Barbara City College for a discussion on implementing pedagogical strategies in introductory chemistry.  

Dr. Nivaldo J. Tro, Santa Barbara City College

Education research demonstrates the effectiveness of certain pedagogical strategies such as the spacing effect, the finding that long-term retention is enhanced by learning that is spaced out over time rather than massed. Other strategies included the power of retrieval, and pretesting in student retention. The digital tools we now have available enable us to easily implement these strategies into our online introductory chemistry courses in ways that were not possible before. In this webinar, Professor Tro will discuss these effects and their implementation in introductory chemistry.
