revised on 23.07.2020, 19:40 and posted on 24.07.2020, 08:31 by William J. Howitz, Taylor A. Thane, Taylor Frey, Xinran S. Wang, Joe C. Gonzales, Chase A. Tretbar, Daniel D. Seith, Shannon S. Saluga, Simon Lam, Melanie M. Nguyen, Peter Tieu, Renee Link, Kimberly D. Edwards
The instruction of high enrollment general and organic chemistry laboratories at a large public 10 university always have curricular, administrative, and logistical challenges. Herein, we describe how we met these challenges in the transition to remote teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic. We discuss the reasoning behind our approach, the utilization of our existing web-based course content, the additions and alterations to our curriculum, replacement of experimental work with videos, the results of both student and TA surveys, and lessons learned for iterations of these courses in the near 15 future.
