  • Developing expertise in teaching energy and change - online course

    Energy changes are very important in chemistry since almost all reactions involve a change in energy. In this course you will learn the vocabulary needed to discuss energy changes, how to measure and calculate them and why they occur. You will meet different types of energy changes and find out how to use them in energy cycles. Discussion about what drives chemical reactions leads to the concepts of entropy and free energy. The 'energy and change' thread of ideas shows the progression and development of core ideas from secondary student level through to post-16 students and beyond.

  • Developing expertise in teaching carbon chemistry - online course

    Carbon chemistry is so important that it has a whole branch of chemistry entirely devoted to it - organic chemistry. The number of compounds that contain carbon vastly exceeds all other compounds combined. This course explores how to teach about the special nature of carbon, some of the important classes of compounds it forms, and their most important reactions. It will help you to help your students understand how the complexity of these compounds leads to variation in molecular structures and spatial arrangements of atoms – the topic of isomerism – and how we can use a variety of methods to find out more about these structures. Topics that students traditionally find difficult, such as reaction mechanisms, are unpicked in detail, and resources are analysed to give concrete approaches for helping students in in the classroom.

  • Developing expertise in teaching redox chemistry - online course

    Redox reactions take us down an important conceptual pathway in chemistry. Our understanding of redox begins with the gain and loss of oxygen and develops into the gain and loss of hydrogen. This paves the way to understanding all chemical reactions as a rearrangement of electrons. Ions are examined and in the reactivity series we see metals ranked into an ‘order of reactivity’ compared to each other. We use oxidation numbers as a useful system of electron accounting to help us identify when electron transfer has taken place. We use half equations to summarise and communicate those electron transfers. Electrolysis involves the forced transfer of electrons by an applied voltage. Electrode potentials use the generated voltage from separated half reactions to predict the feasibility of reactions. Finally, we see how the electrochemical series gives us quantitative data which surpasses the qualitative reactivity series.

  • Developing expertise in teaching how to develop and use models - online course

    Chemistry is the study of materials both on the macroscopic and microscopic levels. Chemists use models to try and explain their observations as they formulate theories. As new data becomes available, chemists evaluate the model they are using and if necessary go on to refine it by making modifications. In this course you will learn about some of the processes involved in developing, using and assessing a model. These processes will be illustrated by examples, from a range of different chemical contexts such as the particle nature of matter, balancing equations, equilibria, structure and bonding. The ‘using models’ thread of ideas shows the progression and development of the associated core ideas from upper primary aged students through to post-16 students and beyond. Within the thread, the particle theory of matter is used to illustrate the core ideas.

  • Developing expertise in teaching analytical chemistry - online course

    You walk into a chemistry lab and pick up a bottle labelled magnesium oxide. You assume the label matches the identity of the powder inside, but how would you make sure? Welcome to the world of analytical chemistry. Analytical chemistry is fundamental to our understanding of the world around us. Beginning with the classification of substances into elements, compounds and mixtures, we will be delving into analytical techniques ranging from chromatography to chemical tests to advanced instrumental techniques. Analytical chemistry brings together many aspects of the chemistry syllabus as the separation and identification of a compound requires an understanding of its unique chemistry. Much like detective work, analytical chemistry involves collecting and piecing together the evidence.

  • Developing expertise in teaching material chemistry - online course

    Material science is the study of all the materials we see in the world around us. From the clothes we wear and the dinner plates we eat off to the new technologies used in sports, medicines and computing. In this course we look at how materials work and develop an understanding of how and why the use of materials has developed throughout history including the manipulation of desirable properties to suit particular uses. The thread of ideas, links the structure and bonding of different types of materials including metals, composites, polymers and smart materials to their properties. Taking these links further forms an important element of the course as we journey from the use of traditional macromolecular structures such as metals to the micromolecular application of nano particles and future materials.

  • Developing expertise in pedagogical approaches to chemistry teaching - online course

    An effective teacher must have a range of different teaching and learning tools that can be drawn upon and used in the classroom.
    For effective learning to take place, the teacher must not only have good subject knowledge but also effective pedagogical skills if they are to get the ideas across to the students.
    In this course you will learn about the core ideas or ‘building blocks’ that are required for effective learning to take place.
