Undergraduate and Postgraduate Teaching and Training
I teach a number of undergraduate and postgraduate modules in the Chemistry department. They include the authored modules on Analytical Chemistry (CHEM286, Applied Analytical Chemistry, year 2-UG; CHEM386, Further Analytical Chemistry, year 3-UG/year 1-PG); CHMR430, Advanced Spectroscopic Elucidation for Organic Chemists, year 1-PG/PhD). I also teach and demonstrate lab practices in the course of CHEM130 (Introductory Organic Chemistry, year 1-UG), CHEM245 (Synthesis and Characterisation, year 2-UG), and CHEM246 (Measurements in Chemistry, year 2-UG).
These modules are designed to provide the students with an understanding of the applications of various analytical techniques and their role in modern research and development. All modules are strategically connected with elements of the Curriculum 2021 framework encompassing:
Research-connected teaching (feeds current research into the syllabus, see my research group webpage above)
Active learning (collaborative and reflective activities to help students to construct knowledge and build independence)
Authentic assessment (assess students using tasks that mirror those they might undertake as professionals)
In addition to specific learning outcomes, all modules develop essential chemistry-related cognitive ability and skills, including problem solving as required by the Chemistry subject benchmark statement. In collaboration with the Analytical Services team, a number of advanced training activities are organised for both UG/PG and PDRAs.
