Inverting the Flask - A Flipping of the Organic Chemistry Laboratory

Author #1

Abstract

A series of videos were developed for the Organic Chemistry laboratory program. These videos were used for several purposes. Initial videos were developed as technique remediation, bringing students back up to speed on necessary General Chemistry skills. Other videos were introduced to replace the face-to-face pre-lab lectures, in an attempt to gain more time for completing experiments and analyzing data. The pre-lab videos gave the students an opportunity to review necessary concepts or techniques multiple times before attempting the experiment, but also allowed for students to reflect on their results before leaving lab. Videos ranged in content from visual demonstration of techniques, problem solving and other forms of discussion. The process, challenges and student perception will be discussed.
