Speaker: Brad Neal

In this presentation, I will share the experience of the chemistry department with the Google Drive app and its integration into to our General Chemistry sequence at the University of Indianapolis. I will discuss how we redesigned many of our labs so as to collect meaningful data from the students regarding their experiments and how we were then able to give the students a richer educational experience than we were previously able to do using that data. Additionally, I will show how we are utilizing capabilities such as Form creation so as to more effectively assess our teaching effectiveness during the progression of the semester.
