COVID-19 Safe Practical Chemistry

COVID-19 Safe Practical Chemistry

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that the way practical chemistry is taught has had to change. In Oxford, we have developed a series of novel computational and simulation activities that can be completed online - a paper is in press, describing an enzyme kinetics simulation developed with colleagues in Biochemistry and Medical Sciences. To ensure what we offer our students is as good as it can be, and in the spirit of collaboration, the CTL team set up an online international forum, known as #drylabs20. This is allowing like-minded university teachers to discuss the plethora of different teaching methods that may be used. This work is discussed in a recent Chemistry World article. more........
