Incorporating a Service-Learning Component in an Organic Chemistry Laboratory Course of a Small Liberal Arts College


Service learning (SL) has been progressively introduced into various curricula in the past years but has gained implementation fairly recently in the organic chemistry laboratory. In our case, we’ve incorporated service-learning into a second-year undergraduate organic chemistry laboratory course (organic chemistry I and II), wherein undergraduate organic chemistry students teach students from secondary schools (high schools) in the community a variety of organic chemistry experiments.
