Providing no-cost, sustainable learning materials for organic chemistry students

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will describe the conversion in all sections of Organic Chemistry I & II from a traditional hard-copy textbook to a free, open-source textbook. All students have access to the book through the university's learning management system. Assessment of student and faculty satisfaction, as well as representative student performance and retention, will be provided.

Learning Outcomes: Learning outcomes for the project include (1) the adoption of a no-cost OER textbook, (2) the alignment of the OER resource and supplementary materials with the course objectives, and (3) the assessment of developed materials to measure their effectiveness in student satisfaction, faculty satisfaction, student performance, and student retention.
