Abstract

Active learning benefits graduate students for many of the same reasons as undergraduates. They gain ownership of material from internal motivation, not faculty pull. We describe a first-semester graduate survey course on analytical chemistry that gives students perspective on a wide range of technology, professional ethos, literature awareness, and discusses how to approach novel or difficult topics.
