January ISoTL newsletter published
Read Jackie’s thoughts in the latest newsletter from the UBC Institute for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. She reflects on the challenges of doing SoTL during the pandemic and why some are continuing to make time for this work despite having many competing responsibilities.
Workshop accepted at BCCE 2022
Jackie will be presenting a workshop at the Biennial Conference on Chemical Education 2022 at Purdue University. ““Flipped? Blended? Mastery? Active? What underlies the buzzwords: How to refine your course to improve student success” will be an interactive session about the psychological principles of long-term, meaningful learning and show how to use these principles in chemistry instructional design. We hope to see you there!
Jackie presented at Pacifichem 2021
On behalf of the Equity and Inclusion Scholars Program research team, Jackie presented a virtual talk titled “Enhancing equity and inclusion by attending to the affective domain: The role of sense of belonging, self-efficacy, and perceptions of classroom climate in active-learning general chemistry” in the symposium she co-organized with Dino Spagnoli, Sarah Masters, and Stacey Lowry Bretz.
Hopefully, the next Pacifichem will bring everyone together in Hawai’i.
