"Snapshots of Undergraduate Students' Interest during Analytical
Chemistry Laboratory Activities"
This qualitative study explores whether undergraduate students
interest can be aroused in a mandatory analytical chemistry class
that generally is considered of little to no interest. Assuming
that certain features of a learning situation arouse a persons
interest regardless of personal preferences (interestingness or
non-interest) for the situation this study asks: (1) Do a series of
analytical chemistry laboratory activities, which are part of a
required undergraduate analytic chemistry course, arouse students
situational interest? (2) If so, what stimuli promote situational
interest and how does it develop throughout the semester?
The program begins at 4 PM; refreshments at 3:45 PM.
Parking available at the Campus Center Garage.
