Reimagining content for online delivery

Transitioning to online learning, educators have been tasked with the difficult work of finding ways to reimagine content and deliver engaging courses that best serve each student's learning journey. This work offers data-supported strategies for online chemistry education with perspectives from
students, teaching associates, teaching fellows, and academics. Chapters include case studies around teaching chemistry online, a review of options for chemistry labs in an online course, and guidance for adapting on-ground chemistry courses for the virtual environment in both asynchronous and
synchronous delivery modalities. This work is a valuable resource for chemistry instructors seeking to build authentic student engagement.
Elizabeth Pearsall (Ph.D., University ofNorthCarolina at Greensboro) is currently the Associate Dean for the Institute for Teaching Excellence at York Technical College, a two-year technical college in Rock Hill, South Carolina, whose mission is to build the community through maximizing studentsuccess. Under her leadership, the Institute for Teaching Excellence provides guidance and direction for teaching innovation and excellence throughout the College, for courses in all modalities. Previously, she served as an Associate Professor and the Director of Faculty at a large doctoral grantinginstitution overseeing chemistry, biology, physics, and earth science faculty. In this role, she was afforded an opportunity to train, coach, and evaluate faculty in online teaching excellence principles across multiple science disciplines. With more than 10 years of chemistry teaching experience, she has instructed in multiple modalities including on-ground, hybrid, and online chemistry and biology courses. Rooted in teaching practices developed while instructing chemistry and biology courses, and honed over the years through a combination of experimentation in the classroom, teaching acrossscience disciplines, and additional professional development, her philosophy is that instruction must be relevant, equitable, and focused on student success regardless of discipline or modality. Kristi Mock (Ph.D., University of Toledo) is a chemistry lecturer at the University of Toledo. She started teaching in 2005 during graduate school, and did not expect to fall in love with the art of teaching chemistry. After nine years teaching in a traditional, on-ground chemistry classroom, sheentered the world of online teaching. Since 2014, she has been involved in finding engaging, fun, and interactive methods of promoting student learning in the online chemistry classroom. Matt Morgan (Ph.D., Montana State University) currently instructs chemistry courses in fully online environments at Western Governors University and Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Prior to teaching fully online, he instructed hybrid chemistry courses starting in 2011 where he developed a keensense of the skills needed to successfully instruct chemistry students from afar. After graduating from the Air Force Academy, he went on to serve his country for 22 years in the Air Force. As a KC-135 aircraft commander, he flew during the Cold War and Desert Storm. Previously, he was a Professorof Chemistry at Hamline University and the United States Air Force Academy for 21 years. Brenna Tucker (Ph.D., University of Alabama at Birmingham) currently serves as the Introductory Chemistry Coordinator at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She has developed multiple lecture, laboratory, and recitation chemistry courses for online instruction. Although she always knew shewanted to be an educator, she discovered a passion for chemistry education as a teaching assistant in graduate school. Her postdoctoral pursuits focused on developing an online chemistry curriculum and she has completed professional development in the areas of online pedagogy and teaching practices.
