Williamson, Vickie individual record
Instructional Professor

My training is in chemical education, one of the divisions recognized by the American Chemical Society. In addition to teaching in the 101-102 chemistry program, I teach graduate-level chemical education courses. These courses are of two types; those for graduate chemical education students and those for teachers. My research area is in chemical education, research, which is inseparable from teaching. Chemical education research involves: (a) the development of teaching strategies and/or curriculum and the testing of the relative effectiveness of the strategy or curriculum via statistical analysis and (b) investigations into the nature of the student-learner in our chemistry classes.
