The people who teach in our program are professionals. They have been trained on how to do what they do and to understand the best practices both in teaching and student learning. Some of us conduct research on student learning and student problem solving. One of us is the editor of a journal about teaching and learning chemistry (i.e., the Journal of Chemical Education). In addition, the self-assessment tools (i.e., questions and tutorial in WebAssign) and the asssessment tools (i.e., WebAssign questions and the final exams of the American Chemical Society Examinations Institute) are used by hundreds of colleges and thousands of students per year. UGA students perform as well or better when compared to national norms.
