  title={Programmed instruction revisited: a study on teaching stereochemistry},
  author={Namudar İzzet Kurbanoğlu and Yavuz Taşkesenligil and Mustafa S{\"o}zbilir},
  journal={Chemistry Education Research and Practice},
This study is aimed at comparing the success of programmed instruction with the conventional teaching approach on teaching stereochemistry, and whether gender has any effect on student success. Forty chemistry teacher trainees attending the same class in the Department of Chemistry Education in a large state university in eastern Turkey were the subjects of the study. Of the forty trainees twenty were selected as the experimental group and the other twenty as the control group. The study was… Expand
