Investigating the effects of object-based learning activities- a pilot study in polymer chemistry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Thispaper investigates the effectiveness of a student-centred learning activity-Object Based Learning (OBL) when implemented in an upper level (3rd year) polymer chemistry topic. There is now a major drive in many tertiary institutions in Australia and worldwide towards using student-centred approaches to teach wherever possible. Student centred active learning is a pedagogical process whereby students are directly involved in the learning process, i.e. they are engaged in the material to be studied through various meaningful activities.
