This course is a 4 credit course (15 weeks, 40 module) for M. Sc. Chemistry Students. Here, Students will be trained to improve their factual, conceptual, procedural and metacognitive knowledge. The scientific explanation given in the video contents makes use of the following components: Presentations, chemical structures, figures, tables, images, 3D-animations, white board demonstration, use of molecular models, paper 3D-models, mirrors etc. We gave emphasis to instructional design by leveraging theories based on Malcom Knowels Andragogy, modified Bloom’s taxonomy, the Feynman Technique, ADDIE model, Dick and Carey model, neuro slide design principles etc.
