This project looks at developing multimedia resources, novel chemistry experiments and chemical demonstrations to help students better understand chemical concepts. Multimedia has progressively become a significant and important teaching tool in science disciplines, including chemistry. Chemistry is a visual subject and its understanding can be greatly enhanced through the use of appropriate images and interactive computer simulations. Simulations can assist students in learning chemistry at a molecular level. This project will provide you with skills in developing simple multimedia resources using Microsoft PowerPoint and Authorware programs for designing and developing novel first-year chemistry experiments and chemical demonstrations. You will need to have a sound background in the foundations of chemistry and education theory and an interest in teaching.
