Learning Strategies for Organic Chemistry (CHM 2210)
This semester, the Center for Academic Success (CfAS) is offering a program called “Learning Strategies for Organic Chemistry”. These workshops have been recently restructured not only to more closely follow the class syllabus, but also keeping in mind current research that discusses student struggles in organic chemistry. Specific skills are necessary to be a successful student in chemistry. Learning how to visualize concepts in 3-D, paying close attention to detail, and knowing how to break words apart are just a few examples of how studying for organic chemistry is unique.
This program is facilitated by tutors who have been very successful in organic chemistry and are former students of FIU organic chemistry faculty. They have experienced the same frustrations as many organic chemistry students and are excited about sharing the learning strategies they have identified as most successful for the course.
The center will be eliciting feedback from you as students to refine the program to suit your needs as learners and the faculty’s needs as educators.
