Chemistry education research has revealed numerous challenges students face learning organic chemistry, including barriers learning chemistry’s language, interpreting, rationalizing, and predicting mechanistic processes and driving forces, and limitations in curricula connecting organic chemistry to broader contexts. In this presentation, I will more deeply describe these challenges, explain our efforts at addressing these challenges with a redesigned curriculum, and share our associated research findings.
