Users of this learning object evaluate the early online experiences of four hypothetical students and record the lessons that can be learned about what to do and what not to do to create effective online learning environments.
In this animated and interactive object, learners observe how two, three, or four groups of electrons around the central atom cause the shape of the molecule to be linear, trigonal planar, bent, tetrahedral, or pyramidal. Seven examples and eight interactive questions are provided.
Learners examine how five or six groups of electrons around a central atom cause the shape of the molecule to be trigonal bipyramidal, seesaw, T-shaped, linear, octahedral, square pyramidal, or square planar. Seven examples and three interactive questions are provided in this animated activity.
Barriers to Critical Thinking: Basic Human Limitations
Learners examine seven basic human limitations that prevent people from seeing or understanding the world with total clarity. In an interactive exercise, learners identify ways to overcome those barriers to critical thinking.
Instructors complete a simple, informal inventory that helps them to see how they use the Seven Principles of Good Practice in Undergraduate Education developed by Chickering and Gamson (supported by AAHE, ACE, Johnson and Lilly foundations) in 1987.
