Introduction to General, Organic and Biological Chemistry (CHE 103)

Chemistry Senior Capstone Seminar (CHE 495)

CHE 103: Freshmen pre-nursing/ nutrition/ physical therapy students take this course. Stress levels and competitiveness are high.

  • This is a Team-Based Learning course, which means it has permanent teams. At the start of the class, I ask a team to select one member to bring a scripture verse to read. Afterward I pray for my students. In class, we discuss that this Christian practice allows us to understand the power and role of scripture as a daily guide in the midst of our busy lives. It also provides peace when worldwide issues happen. Working in permanent teams is also a practice that helps students learn to care for each other.

CHE 495: Seminar capstone course taken by seniors in the spring.

  • My students and I try to share a meal together during our time together so we can discuss relevant issues while eating. This practice allows our students to understand the idea of living in a Christian community.
