ASDL Active Learning Curricular Materials

Active Learning

The materials presented on this website are the product of a collaborative NSF Phase I CCLI award to Thomas Wenzel, Bates College (DUE 0816649), and Cynthia Larive, University of California Riverside (DUE-0817595) and an NSF TUES Type 2 award to Tom Wenzel, Bates College (DUE 1118600). The goal of this project is to develop active learning resources to support instruction in analytical chemistry courses. The team involved in this project has developed criteria for what constitutes an active learning exercise in the classroom and laboratory.

Members of the community are welcome to submit additional active learning materials for inclusion on this site as a way of rounding out the analytical chemistry tool kit and expanding the collection of context-based materials for classroom and laboratory use. If you are interested in submitting an item for consideration for the site, please contact Tom Wenzel at Bates College (

A current grant from the NSF IUSE program (DUE-1624898) supports activities aimed at promoting the use of active learning and examining the effectiveness of using active learning in undergraduate analytical chemistry courses. ASDL will be offering two national workshops in the summer of 2018. If you would like information about how to apply for these workshops, please contact Tom Wenzel at Bates College (
