Game-based Learning in Organic Chemistry I

Students in an Organic Chemistry I course were introduced to game-based learning. Game-based learning incorporates all types of learning styles as well as factual, conceptual, procedural, and meta-cognitive knowledge. The games designed and played in CHEM 2400 are adaptations of favorite board games or TV game shows. Each game addresses course and student learning objectives, allows students to spend more time on task with difficult concepts/topics, and provides a continual review of the subject matter. Assessment findings show the use of gaming as an enjoyable, alternative, and effective teaching tool for learning Organic Chemistry and mastering areas of difficulty.
