Here's what we can do better for next time:
Learners need to assimilate and synthesize information, not just give an oral report. Researchers need to be faster to post info for the learners and the chat needs to focus on CONTENT, not playing around. We were not very successful in demonstrating much depth of knowledge and it's obvious that there's lots to review before Friday. It's time to stop reading about Chemistry and start understanding Chemistry -- think for yourself and look for connections and relationships. Put on your big boy/girl pants folks! We will switch roles next time and I think now that we know how it works, it will go better.
