P95: Guided inquiry in chemistry: A teaching assistant training course

Sally Hunnicutt (Virginia Commonwealth University, USA)

“Guided Inquiry in Chemistry” is a teaching assistant training course that introduces students to the principles of guided inquiry, active learning, and collaborative learning in chemistry through practical, hands-on class work, discussions, and readings.  Students in the course facilitate recitation sections using guided-inquiry, group-based activities.  In addition, each student develops a guided inquiry activity on an assigned general chemistry topic and presents it orally to the class.  Upon successful completion of this course, students may continue as teaching assistants in both laboratory and lecture courses.  A primary objective of this course is that students begin to reflect on how they learn; we will present examples of student reflections.
