P252: Active learning in organic chemistry: Cell phones as classroom response systems

John H. Penn (West Virginia University, USA)

Active learning by large enrollment lecture courses remains an elusive goal. Recent advances in technology have enabled classroom response systems that utilize cell phone technology for the submission of data by students. A semester’s long experiment in the use of this new CRS system will be discussed via a case study. Preliminary results indicate positive results in learning outcomes. The system, the experiment, and the results will be discussed in this presentation.
