Department Pharmacy, School Life and Medical Sciences

slide2

A 1st year chemistry module (Molecular Structure and Reactivity)

co-taught to undergraduate students from Deptof Pharmacy (n= 223) and Dept Health and Environmental Science (n=180).

slide3

Lack of practice questions

Too much content. Not enough exam practice.

Would like more access to exam questions

A lot of information I found was like A-level, making it hard to remain engaged

Hard to repeat work done inside out at A level and still be engaged in lectures

slide4

Provide sample exam paper with answers

Staff produce more practice questions

What about Week 12 Progress Test

..being able to remember all the names, properties and reactions involving different molecules.

The amount of content per lecture can be a challenge.

….remembering all the material.

The amount of material that needs to be learned. The huge difference between material learned at A-level compared to now.

Lectures sometimes feel like information overload…. Chemistry has many details that are often difficult to remember.

slide8

Students create multiple choice questions and share them with peers

Students view, answer, and give feedback to their peers

Peerwise Question Development

Due in Week 10, Friday 30th Nov at 18:30

You are assigned two chemistry theory topics (which are also covered in Semester A lectures). You are required to create an MCQ on each topic, answer 5 questions, comment on 3 questions and rate other students’ questions for quality and difficulty.

Student Engagement

  • 3 students out of 237 did not create any questions
  • 52 students just answered the required 5 questions
  • 75% of cohort answered more than the required number (2 students answered 95 questions!)
slide26

It is very useful because I can find answers and explanations to various questions that I do not understand. moreover, I understood and learnt a lot of things by answering the questions in peerwise

It definitely helps when revising for exams

I thought it was an effective way of learning about how much you understood a certain topic as you had to understand something in order to write a question about it.

slide27

I'd question how beneficial it is compared to other revision/learning techniques. A lot of the questions written by students looked like they were written quickly and were unchallenging.

Peerwiseis good to use, however the fact that it is your own choice to answer which ever question you prefer, it is easy to just choose the easy questions and not attempt the more challenging ones.

There is that cynical feeling knowing that a student wrote the question so there is that doubtful factor an lack of confident in the answer and a explanation for the MCQ.
