P487: Physical chemistry education and learning objects (PChemLO): Affective aspects of implementation

Murat Kahveci (Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University, Turkey)

This presentation will include the preliminary findings of ongoing PChemLO project (Kahveci, 2012), which is a collaborative project between the Divisions of Chemistry Education and Physical Chemistry at Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University in Turkey. The main objectives of the project are to develop learning objects and investigate student attitudes and motivation to utilize these learning objects for learning advanced chemistry topics, like the ones in physical chemistry course. All learning objects are developed on the inquiry-based science education principles. In addition, the integration of educational technology to support self-studying is in the center of all implementations. Also, this kind of system allows one to track student interactions with course material. Moodle LMS system is used to deploy the course deliverables. The initial findings on the development of learning objects in the context of physical chemistry and their effect on student learning will be presented. Learner attitudes and other affective dimensions (as covariates) with respect to knowledge gain (as dependent variable) will be investigated.
