About Teaching - But I Teach a Large Class
This webpage authored by a Biology Professor from the University of Delaware in 1996 addresses the question of how one might adapt the problem-based learning approach for use in a large classroom setting. The page contains no links. The information is not dated and will be useful to all teaching faculty concerned with this question.
Chrom. and Electrophoresis experiments with PDFs
A site with PDF links to several slab gel electrophoresis, HPLC, and GC experiments intended for high school or college audiences. This site may provide a useful starting point for faculty seeking to implement new laboratory experiments based on these techniques. A login (email address) is required, but once logged in, follow the "Free Resources" link to see many instrumental and analytical experiments that have been submitted to the site.
Using Problem-Based Teaching and Problem-Based Learning to Improve the Teaching of Electrochemistry
This is a paper from The China Papers dated July 2003 that describes current chemical education methods in China and the introduction of problem-based learning at one institution in the physical chemistry course which is where electrochemistry is apparently taught.
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy
This website serves as a primer for understanding the fundamentals of NMR spectroscopy. Plenty of useful figures and animations that enhance the understanding of nuclear spin, shielding, and how these phenomena serve as the basis for NMR.
Learning space evaluation
The subject of physical learning space has in recent years become increasingly complex This reflection examines what evidence exists in this area
From Teaching to Learning: Part III. Lectures and Approaches to Active Learning
This is an article link from the Journal of Veterinary Medical Education applying active learning processes in veterinary classes focusing on asking questions and brainstorming in class. This page is for faculty, but is general and not specifically geared to analytical chemistry. The quality of content is excellent and uses examples of material used in a science lecture, Journal references are included.
Learning theories and higher education
This PowerPoint presentation is aimed at those teaching in HE. It explores various learning theories and styles.

eMarketing: the essential guide to online marketing
According to these authors, currently available online marketing textbooks are largely inadequate and outdated and lack the technical know-how and practical background that would make them applicable to students, educators and practitioners in the corporate sector. Quirk offers a dynamic and integrated learning experience that will ensure that students, educators and companies using the guide to eMarketing, will be in the know regarding the latest trends and best practices in this exciting spher

Advertising the Animals of Utah
Children may learn about some of the animals of Utah while simultaneously learning about the media and advertising with its positive and negative impact.
Learning simulation discussion
Kevin Stirling, Lecturer in Simulation at the Clinical Skills Centre, University of Dundee, being interviewed by Paul Maharg. This interview took place at the UKCLE OER/simulation learning event at the University of Edinburgh, 19/05/10.
AstroGrid as an e-Learning Environment
We present the concept of the Virtual Observatory through the AstroGrid project, which is a Virtual Organization making intensive use of the Internet to produce a working data-grid for Astronomical applications. AstroGrid has implemented a series of tools which facilitate collaborative work such as news, forum and discussion pages, all of them inspired by the open source and licensing philosophy. Additionally we explore how such an Astronomical Grid project can be used in the future as an e-Le

Learning Design and Run-Time Resource Binding in a Distributed e-Learning Environment
Nowadays, the need for e-learning systems supporting a rich set of pedagogical requirements has been identified as an important issue in the field of distance learning. Several initiatives take place in order to meet this need. Maybe, the most important of these initiatives is IMS Learning Design  that provides a framework to depict pedagogies. Furthermore, we are aware that the provision of different learning paths tailored on learner's characteristics and preferences guarantees the learner
Computational GRIDs and online laboratories
Many projects addressing the creation of online laboratories have been developed recently. They have a common goal: to enable students and professional learners to get hands-on experience without moving from the places where they are. Nevertheless, the found solutions are often very different among them, and interoperability between different online laboratories systems does not exist. In this paper we present our work around the exploitation of Grid technologies for sharing instrumentation and
Can research on science learning and instruction inform standards for science education?
We contrast the current science education reform effort with the reforms of the 1960s and suggest how the current effort could be enhanced. We identify insights from recent research that we believe can inform the reform process, in particular, to reach all science students and also impart a cohesive view of science. We propose an ldquoalternative modelsrdquo view of scientific explanation and show how this view would contribute to reforms of (1) course goals, (2) social aspects of science learni
