  1. 1. Learning from Teaching Teaching from Learning Omar M. Pecho
  2. 2. Some Principles
  3. 3. background of students course design and classroom teaching methods
  4. 4. objectives instructional activities assessments
  5. 5. Expectations Objectives Policies
  6. 6. Priorities? Focus?
  7. 7. Coverage • Theories – Matter – Atomic Structure – Chemical Reactions • Applications
  8. 8. Remember: We are not our students!
  9. 9. Teaching roles have something to do with goals!
  10. 10. Refinement based on reflection and feedback.
  11. 11. Teaching techniques
  12. 12. se actual laboratory set-up f not available, use simple materials to demonstrate phenomenon. se toys, consumer products at home, AVPs etc.
  13. 13. • Prepare presentations like ppt if available. • Make it interactive. • Make it simple and clear. • However, there are advantages and disadvantages in using these materials.
  14. 14. Example: MgCl2 Mg + Cl Mg2+ + 2 Cl Cl
  15. 15. Example: PCl3 Total valence electrons: 5 + 3(7) = 26 6 20 Cl P Cl 18 2 Cl
  16. 16. U se other techniques such as story-telling - personal experience - jokes or funny stories
  17. 17. • Do not do most of the “talking” • Make them think about “things” and let them express their thoughts freely. • Constructive criticism is a must!
  18. 18. Make yourself contagious. I mean the positive side.
  19. 19. Traditional versus Non-traditional
  20. 20. Some examples • Focus Group Discussions • Technology-based methods • Immersion
  21. 21. Some new topics Materials Chemistry Nanotechnology Biochemistry Organic Chemistry Environmental Chemistry
