University of Georgia and Western Kentucky University Present MeasureNet-Related Research
April 8, 2008
Research by two of MeasureNet's most active academic users highlighted MeasureNet's 10th anniversary celebration at the 2008 American Chemical Society Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. Assessing Student Learning Via Practical Exams was presented by Bobby Stanton of the University of Georgia's Department of Chemistry and his colleague Lin Zhu, currently a faculty member of the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. Stanton and Zhu, along with UGA's Professor Charles Atwood, are authors of Experiments in General Chemistry Featuring MeasureNet published by Cengage Learning. A revised edition is expected from the authors in 2009. Read Stanton and Zhu's poster abstract here.
Western Kentucky University's The Effect of PC-based Laboratories on Student Learning garnered much attention and was selected for a two-evening showing in the Chemical Education poster section. The ongoing research evaluating MeasureNet's impact on student learning in spectroscopy is being undertaken by Professors Les Pesterfield, Stuart Burris, Darwin Dahl, and Hasan Palandoken of WKU's Department of Chemistry, as well as Jacqueline Pope-Tarrence of the Department of Psychology.
