P210: Introducing chemical research to undergraduates: A survey course for sophomores and juniors

Rebecca M. Jones (George Mason University, USA)

The practice of chemical research often differs considerably from the laboratory and lecture experience of lower division students.  This presentation will discuss the successful implementation of a redesigned Introduction to Chemistry Research seminar course, employed in the past two fall semesters at Austin Peay State University, a regional primarily undergraduate institution.  Using innovative and engaging activities, this course aimed to increase interest in undergraduate chemistry research and prepare students to begin a faculty mentored research project the following semester.  Details regarding course content and structure, notes on implementation, and student feedback will be reported.
