Typically, students who arrive at the laboratory classes are expected to possess the knowledge necessary to ensure safe and fruitful work.

In this paper we have looked at what we call the "gap problem", i.e., the situation where the information, the understanding and the skills that students really fathom are not what is needed for performing the… 



Courseware is the key: Bridging lecture and laboratory in general chemistry

Two courseware projects are described, the first project relying on a tutorial strategy, and the second utilizing tool-based courseware which emphasized modeling and manipulation of simulated representations of chemical systems.

Teaching for quality learning in chemistry

In Portugal, the number of students in higher education increased from 80,000 in 1975 to 381,000 in 2000 (a change from 11% to 53% in the age group 18–22), meaning a major change in the diversity of
