Comments:

27. Did the CIITN activities succeed to connect the abstract chemistry to your 
real world experiences?
28. What are the benefits/ obstacles of the promotion of student-centered 
learning by way of the collaborative group activities?
29. Did the collaborative group activities extend beyond working on the 
assignments?  If so, in what way?
30. What is going well in this class?
31. What needs improvement?  Please make concrete suggestions.
32. Other comments:


Student 1
27. The CIITN items did help to make the Chemistry more realistic and 
applicable but News items need to be more appropriate and relevant to current 
news.
28. This is my 2nd time in 212 and I think that the group activities were the 
most beneficial part of the class.  I learned more, participated more, and 
understood more as a result of these activities.
29. My group frequently met to study for and work on exams as well as preparing 
for labs.
30. I am doing much better than I had expected especially since I did so poorly 
the 1st time I took Chem 212.
31. Use of powerpoint serious is helpful but need to remove extraneous material 
instead of skipping 6 slides without discussing.  More rxn Chemistry to prepare 
for exams.
32. (left blank)

Student 2
27. Somewhat
28. Benefits- gets lots of diverse opinions/views on subject matter
Obstacle- difficult to coordinate everyone's schedules to meet to actually 
do projects.
29. (left blank)
30. (left blank)
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 3
27. Yes, I don't know thatIlearned any new Chemistry in the CIITN items.  
But they helped me to see how important and present Chemistry is in our 
society.
28. If all members in the group were willing to participate it was beneficial.  
The groups fostered discussion and debated amongst people who knew the 
material.  And if one person didn't know the material, there was an 
opportunity to teach it peers.  I found I understood the Chemistry better when 
having to explain it to my group.
29. We have all become good friends and they were all complete strangers at the 
beginning of the semester.
30. I am very happy with how the class turned out.
31. Printing the notes off at home didn't work as well. Maybe having a binder 
with all the lecture notes available at the book store to buy with the text.
32. At the start of the semester, the class looked very intimidating, like it 
wouldn't be fun, and it would be difficult and take a lot of work.  It did 
take a lot of work, but it was pretty fun and very pleasing.  It was a 
wonderful experience.

Student 4
27. Yes, I enjoyed CIITN.
28.  I became very close to my chemistry group this semester.  It made our 
projects and studying a lot more fun.  The only obstacle was dividing the 
responsibilities among the group members.
29. Yes, studying for exams, hanging out, and ordering pizza etc. 
30. CIITN and labs
31. During the course we were required to use two different websites to view 
class material.  It would be great if they could somehow be combined.
32. I really enjoyed Dr. Glaser'sclass.  The CIITN brought a new  perspective to what 
we were learning.  Dr. Glaser is very intelligent not only  with chemistry but with 
current events and issues.  I enjoyed hearing his point of views on the topics 
discussed.

Student 5
27. Yes, I liked the CIITN.  It made the class more interesting.
28. I like the collaborative group activities.  They really helped. Comparing 
answers and sharing knowledge was very beneficial.
29. No
30. I like the idea of a group and the projects, the CIITN, and the take-home 
tests.
31. Slow down when explaining things and have simple, grade school examples so 
I can understand it.  Don't read the book to me.  Also, test expectations need to 
be more clear.  Finally, don't assume that I learned the same thing he taught in 
210.
32. This class was possibly the worst class I have took so far.  I barely 
learned anything because he went so fast through the material.  (I spent an 
hour every night studying).  I basically had to teach myself through the book.

Student 6
27. They most certainly did.  The CIITN projects truly made me realize the 
important role chemistry plays in the real world.  And how it affects me on a 
daily basis- I will always value what I have learned from these assignments.
28. I met more people in my class, this was valuable opportunity for me to 
learn how to collaborate.  My classmates rather than people I should complete 
neither.
29. Yes, I found myself studying with my group as well.
30. My favorite aspect of this class were the group projects and how they 
forced us to collaborate with each other.
31. (left blank)
32. The take-home exams were excellent.  On the whole, this class is the most 
interesting I have ever taken.  It has forced me to view various issues from 
various viewpoints.  I learned how to collaborate with others.  I also learned 
new study techniques.  Thank you for providing me with such a unique teaching 
experience, Dr. Glaser!!

Student 7
27. They were interesting to read, but overall it did not help me through this 
course.  It did not connect me to chemistry to the real world.
28. The benefit was able to get feed back from fellow students, but to feel it 
did not help me understand the material being taught.
29. Yes, we would study for tests together and work on take-home exams 
together.
30. Having the notes available was helpful.
31. Make it more clear what subjects are being covered on a test.  Be more 
specific than just the chapter numbers being covered.
32. Be more opened minded when it comes to test.  Do not always blame us for 
not understanding the material.  You need to show some responsibility for the 
students not understanding the material.

Student 8
27. Yes, very much so.  I find myself discussing points that I learned from the 
CIITN projects, outside of class in normal conversation.  It was definitely a 
positive experience to see how concepts apply to life.
28. Benefit- get to communicate opinions with others and discuss why things 
work the way they do.  It also  decreases work load per person.
Obstacle-getting everyone together with different schedules.
29. Yes, every so often we would study for tests together. Work with each 
others groups.  We also would go to hang out.
30. Assignments and take-home exams.
31. Working with Colorado.
32. (left blank)

Student 9
27. Yes
28. Student- centered learning takes time away from time that might otherwise 
be spent learning organic chemistry in a way that will help the student do well 
on an exam.
29. Yes, it allowed for formation of friendship in some cases.
30. (left blank)
31. You need to finalize the decision as to exactly what content will be on an 
exam sooner.  Specifically, the test content lists that you put on the 
discussion board and blackboard be posted three weeks before exam.
32. (left blank)

Student 10
27. Yes, at first I hated it but by the end of the class I really understood 
the purpose of them.  I believe I will now be more interested in news items 
then before.
28. It was nice to have a group to discuss with and help out with the work 
load.  It's always hard for me to write papers as a group.  I have a very 
distinct way that I like to word sentences etc.  I'd have to admit I'm 
kind of overbearing.
29. Not really, sometimes we'd studied for exams together but once again 
I'm kind if a loner when preparing for exams.  I did however enjoy the 
take-home test I like comparing and arguing my answers.
30. (left blank)
31. I understood that the book changed therefore, changing the structure of the 
course but having examples from old test or perhaps a reaction homework sheet 
would help in test preparation.
32. I really believe that people scored well on test because of the disruption 
of the technology.  I REALLY FEEL that writing out rxns and arrow pushing on 
the board helps the instructor to slow down to a pace that the students can 
follow.  I realize it may not be possible everyday because of time constraints 
but for harder concepts and drawing and arrow pushins.

Student 11
27. Yes, but I do think they might have been unnecessary.  They did relate 
chemistry to the real world, but the project was unexpected and stressful.
28. I do not think it is far to have a group project in this class.  There are 
many people with different ability levels.  This isn't high school, people 
just want to go to class and take some tests.
29. No, not for me.  I did the assignments.
30. I think I learned a lot in Chemistry.
31. Drop the project.  Test averages were a little too low.  Lecture seemed 
rushed.
32. I realize this is a very hard class to teach.  I do think Dr. Glaser did a 
good job considering the demands he had to deal with.

Student 12
27. Yes
28. The collaborative group activities helped a lot because it was nice to get 
to know classmates beyond a lecture atmosphere.
29. Yes
30. The projects
31. The tests
32. (left blank)

Student 13
27. It took time to get used to this tool, but once I did it was good.  It 
balanced the chemistry learned.
28. I liked the group assignments, but I was lucky and had a good group.  It 
gives you the opportunity to discuss the chemistry.
29. Other chemistry issues were discussed.  This happened because he would find 
things on the internet.
30. The lab was the best lab I've had.  It actually pertained to the lecture.  The 
extra assignments take time, but they give a chance for additional points.
31. When questions are asked of the students, and a student or many students 
answer, please repeat the answer so everyone knows it.
32. I would rather Dr. Glaser teach the class instead of the books slides.  If 
he did, it would give us two areas to learn from.

Student 14
27. Yes, I enjoyed the CIITN items.  Good incorporation of news of the world 
into class.
28. Denver collaboration did not work well.  There was discrepancy on what each 
states assignment entailed.  Stick to peer review with the class.
29. Got together for the take-home tests.  Realizing they were already in or 
are going to take some courses as I was.
30. The weekly reviews at night were helpful.  Keep those.
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 15 
27. Yes
28. I am married, own a home 4 miles out of town, and work full time.  This 
group thing was the biggest time crunch I have had with any class.  I feel it 
was a little too much along with all of the studying needed for the course.  
You have to remember not everyone lives in the dorms and have nothing better to 
do than Organic Chemistry.
29. It did help me get to know people in the class and set up study group.
30. Overall I think it prepared me well for the MCAT.
31. Reorganize so it is not such a time crunch.  Maybe no lab a test weeks.

Student 16
27. No
28. 1st time ever that a group project actually worked.
29. Sure
30. Nothing
31. A new teacher that actually gives a damn about teaching chemistry so we 
understand it.
32. Dr. Glaser- You should really check out the concept website by University 
of Wisconsin; you might find them amusing- we sure did!!

Student 17
27. They take up to much time between studying, lab, and other classes.  They 
are a good idea, but maybe if they were integrated into lab times they might be 
more interesting and less stressful.
28. Time commitments!!!
29. Not really, except that we all became better friends and worked together to 
study.
30. I enjoyed the labs a lot.  I also enjoy the subject matter- I like 
synthesis rxns and mechanisms.
31. Maybe if you spent more time on the lecture presentation- use your own 
notes/slides and not the books.  What is the point of reading the book and then 
going to lecture where the slides are exactly the same.
32. I enjoyed Organic Chemistry in 21 and the 1st part of 212, but it became 
frustrating when I got nothing out of the lecture time.

Student 18
27. No, I thought it was a waste of time.
28. They were okay, but if I were interested in a "writing-intensive" course then I 
would take an English class.  They had little impact on learning the material in 
class in other activities.
29. Yes, we studied for a few tests.
30. I can't think of anything.
31. The tests need to be more realilistic, I mean come on, two tests are that 
difficult, then something needs to be done, and making the tests take-home just 
to appease the students, actually keep yourself from being fired because you 
failed everyone.
32. (left blank)

Student 19
27. The articles online were effective, but the activities weren't very well 
explained.
28. Its difficult to get everyone together, but good to have group discussions.
29. We did studying in our group and worked on the take-home exams together.
30. The reviews were very beneficial as was the take-home exams.
31. Instructor should make clear what material will appear on exams.  Labs need 
to be revised before they are done.  Lectures were too fast for anyone trying 
to take notes.  Incorrect slides made lectures confusing.  More instructor 
explanation (i.e. drawing figures on the board) is needed.  CIITN project needs 
to be better planned as far as timing.  Exams in class were too specific not to 
have notes.  In class tests.
32. Should be more conceptual, not based on remembering small details. 

Student 20
27. The CIITN readings were helpful.  They added a different angle to the 
normal class configuration.
28. They gave us a reason to get to know others and put effort into the group.
29. Yes, groups were forced for other classes too. 
30. The group activities.
31. The mechanism behind reactions.  I still feel like I learned as far as 
reactions.
32. I think we need quizzes once a week in the material covered that maybe on 
the following exam.  This will push us harder to keep up.

Student 21
27. Yes
28. (left blank)
29. No, my group didn't work together, but I worked with other groups.
30. (left blank)
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 22
27. Yes, the CIITN activities helped connect chemistry to the real world.
28. There are lots of benefits to collaborative group activities.  Getting 
different opinions and perspectives on issues and projects that stimulate 
discussion is a key benefit.  The only obstacle in my opinion is if some of you 
group members are not willing to contribute and work on the group assignments.
29. (left blank)
30. Overall, I enjoyed this.  I am majoring in biological engineering and this 
class was not required.  Organic Chemistry really interests me and that is why 
I am taking this class.  I enjoyed my experience in Chem 212 and still hold a 
high interest in organic chemistry.  I feel like I have a stringer background 
in organic chemistry.
31. I think that if the grades the peer review groups from Denver gave are 
considerably lower than the in class peer reviews grades.  The grades should be 
normed so that students in the intra state peer review.
32. (left blank)

Student 23
27. We helped all you asked about were statistics.
28. I didn't learn anything.  I don't see how writing an abstract helps with the 
understanding of organic chemistry or for that matter knowing how to run a 
computer program.  The CIITN project did not help with anything in lecture.
29. We helped each other in lab and on the lab reports.
30. Nothing!!!   Lecture was terrible.  You may think you taught us something 
but all you did was go over slides that the company gave you.  You just 
presented them, shined your pointer on the arrows, said it attacks here and 
there was no explanation.  Then we were to do it on a test about something we 
didn't even know.  Does a 1 out of 50 tell you anything?	
31. Everything.  You need a new teaching style.  Class time was wasted by 
looking at stupid internet sites and movies
32. Grade doesn't correlate at all with the amount learned.

Student 24
27. Somewhat- but I think the time spent on it took away time that I could have 
been learning "abstract"chemistry- which is what I want to know.
28. Obstacles- It takes too much time.  If you do well in this aspect you can't 
keep up with reading in the book or CIITN and VCs.  I did a lot more of the 
work because others couldn't or wouldn't for whatever reason and I would rather 
have learned reactions than spent time on the computer.
Benefits- you really realize that your peers no even less than you do.
29. One of my group members and I probably spent 70% of our time together 
because we were trying to do well in this class.
30. The reviews are where I really learn things- if Glaser taught this way in 
class I would learn a whole lot faster.
31. Quit using the slides.  Actually teach us.  Cut back on the assignments, 
revisions aren't good things.  They suck up too much time and really amount 
to nothing in the long run.
32. This class was a sham.  I'll probably get an A and feel like I've learned 
nothing concrete about chemistry.  Sure, I can work computer programs, but will 
that really help me in the long run?  I don't think so, I enjoy organic chemistry 
and am sorely disappointed in this class- it had the potential to be awesome.

Student 25
27. Sometimes, some were definitely better than others, doing the projects 
ourselves was probably the most useful experience of the entire course.
28. The course relied too much on doing projects in groups and too little on 
chemistry knowledge gained by individual students, if any students in this 
course gained any chemistry knowledge.
29. Actually, we would have gotten together more to help each other understand 
chemistry concepts we were struggling with, but since most evaluations that 
actually connected were the take-home exams and collaborative, we didn't 
bother to learn anything.
30. The group projects
31. No, offense, but your lecture style is not very good.  The slides are 
boring and made it hard to pay attention and with the projector not working 
frequently and you seeming lost, I began to wonder why I was still attending 
class.
32. I hope this class goes better for students on the future and you manage to 
get around to switching over your examples to the text were actually using and 
make your learning objectives more clear.

Student 26
27. Yes, the CIITN assignments and project successfully connected organic 
chemistry to the real world.
28. Benefits- if you do work together regularly, you can excel.  But realistically, 
this is not always feasible.  Students have rigorous schedules that conflict with 
each other.  And I believe professors in general ask too much of us students.  
29. Not for my group, unfortunately, die to schedule conflicts 
30. I am leaving the course material to the real world.
31. Instructor methods suck.  Power point doesn't really work for teaching 
chemistry, despite convenience for the instructor.  I would switch to overhoads 
or blackboards, since students go at human instructors pace.  And perhaps to 
CIITN in Chem 210 because this class demanded too much from me.
32. I believe that Dr. Glaser intentions are genuinely golden.  However, his 
teaching methods need some work.  But I do appreciate his concern for wanting 
us to learn the truth, not just the basic necessities to pass.

Student 27
27. It is interesting, but I'm not sure how much it connected me.  Probably  
50% did, 50% didn't.
28. It is time consuming.  As a graduate student that is a killer.  It did, 
however, force a group of 6 together to discuss organic chem.  We did 
Interstate on last assignment, washout-other group obviously didn't get 
some instructions we did.
29. NO
30. Dr. Glaser had great concern for students.
31. Lab is a time killer.  It took 8-9 hours a week, which is tough when you have 
research projects, study for comps, going to meetings and all that severed of us had 
to do,  However, it's a must do- a grade killer if you don't.
32. As, stated above, Dr. Glaser was extremely fair with everyone.  I got extremely 
tired of a bunch of pre-med undergraduates bitching because they couldn't cope with 
the subject.  In our dept., you suck it up, take you licks and move on.  Dr. Glaser 
teaches a difficult subject to probably a high % of non-chem. majors. In spite of 
subject matter- I thought he did great.

Student 28
27. Kind of, but it was more of a pain to learn about in addition to everything 
else in the book and visualization center.
28. Working in groups was good because you became friends with them.
29. N, the Colorado people had a different understanding of what we should do 
then.
30. (left blank)
31. He gives out extra credit if TA's do not show up for office hours without 
any sort of proof.  This encourages the TA's not to show up and people lie because 
he has no way of verifying.
32. His office hours is during class time for most people especially the 
engineering students.

Student 29
27. Yes, but I don't feel that we should be tested over this chemistry.  It is 
good to know how the chemistry is applied but this does not show how well we 
know organic chemistry.  Just how well we know the articles.
28. Need communication between Denver and here.  I did not like how unorganized 
the last one was.
29. Yes, we studied together.
30. (left blank)
31. Notes that are either explained better or not just taken from book. I can 
read the book myself.  I would like to have more sources of information.  Need 
to communicate better about exactly what is expected for test and projects.  
Did get better with tests toward end.
32. (left blank)

Student 30
27. Yes, I found the CIITN articles to be pretty interesting.  I like to see 
how something that I'm  spending so much time learning about relates to the 
real world.
28. It seemed like I was constantly going to organic group projects.  I got to 
know other students in the class much better and it made lab more fun but was a 
large chunk of my time.
29. We got together to work on the take-home test together and we would ask 
each other questions in lab.
30. (left blank)
31. The instructor needed to be more open and sympathetic to study opinions and 
needs especially at the beginning of the semester.
32. Overall, I think the instructor listened to us more towards the end of the 
semester, which relieved a lot of anxiety.  I really did enjoy the real world 
applications of chemistry since I had never really gotten that from previous 
chemistry class.

Student 31
27. Yes, but sometimes this way they were applied on the test wasn't related to 
chem.  You should test on the content of the news items with chem. behind them 
instead of looking at the numbers and facts.
28. The benefits are that I learned more working with groups and thinking it 
out.  However, it was hard trying to get everyone to agree on a schedule to 
finish assignments in the short amount of time given.
29. Yes, our group meet with others to review for tests and discuss lab.
30. The lab and group assignments gave us an opportunity to obtain more points 
in the class.
31. The test needed to all be either 50 points or 100 points, and then full 50 
minutes of class to take them.  Lecturing after a 50 point test is not beneficial 
when you're worrying about your grade because of the lack of time.  DON'T try to 
collaborate with the University's.  Their lack of organization is stressful for us, 
and their expectations and guidelines are different.  Making the opinion of others 
not from our class effects our grade is ridiculous.
32. You speed through a lot of material.  Concentrate on the important information 
more.  Between lecture, lab, and group assignments it's hard to stay on top of this 
class.  Give details in lecture instead of an overview.  However, the weekly 
reviews are a very helpful, I would continue those.  The lecture should be taught 
in the manner that the reviews are facilitated even though there is the 
time-constraint problem.

Student 32
27. Yes, they were pretty good.  They showed applications of the chemistry in 
the text to the real world.

31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 33
27. Yes
28. The groups were cool unless you had a group like I did who refused to communicate 
meeting times to me because I wasn't in their clique.
29. No, I don't like my group.  They are assholes.
30. The grades for group boost up my grade.
31. The test sometimes seemed to be a little long.  I study a lot for this class and 
do poor on test.  It is my acceptance that I suck at Organic Chemistry but I feel 
like it should have more questions that don't have six parts for a quiz.
32. I like the take-home exams.

Student 34
27. Yes, the CIITN items were excellent. I learned a lot mostly  how science is 
all around us.
28. By working in groups I got different points of views and learned a lot.
29. Yes, we would study together do tests, and just examine chemistry all 
together.
30. The extra assignments beyond tests.
31. The Denver people sucked!! They never turned their projects on time and it 
was hard to communicate with them.
32. (left blank)

Student 35
27. I think so.
28. Getting along with the other members of your group, learning together,
29. Yes, we started hanging out.
30. Collaborative learning
31. Need reviews to start out at the beginning of the semester and not wait 
until we did on an exam.
32. (left blank)

Student 36
27. Yes, but it was a bit excessive and unnecessary.
28. Benefits- shared knowledge.  Obstacles- 5 conflicting schedules
29. (left blank)
30. Good attempt to correlate to real world, but stick to Organic and not statistics 
or modern issues.
31. Expectations at the first exam.  All others were manageable due to experience, 
but the first exam was a huge surprise. 
32. (left blank)

Student 37 
27. Yes
28. Sometimes it was hard to get together at the sometime, but overall it was 
good.
29. We worked on the test together.
30. (left blank)
31. The CIITN assignments seemed rushed at the end maybe because it could be a 
little more spread out because, again, it was hard to get together as a group.
32. (left blank)

Student 38
27. Sometimes- the information was not current enough and I had already  known 
a lot about them.  But usually they helped.
28. I benefited from them grade wise and I liked getting to know my group members.  
The obstacles were that it was hard to meet sometimes and we couldn't get much from 
the assignment because we were rushed.
29. No- except outside class talking and stuff.
30. (left blank)
31. (left blank)
32. J

Student 39
27. Yes, it helped me see the point of Chemistry better.
28. I love the points group projects give you.  You do learn more.  However, I have 
never spent so much time on a class before.
29. Gave us study buddies.
30. Nothing
31. Teach, don't just read us slides, I can do that on my own time.  Moves way too 
fast.
32. (left blank)

Student 40
27. Somewhat, they helped me understand that organic chemistry was occurring in 
every day life.
28. They helped me meet and get to know some members of my class really well.  
The obstacles were trying to find time to do all these assignments.
29. Yes, they facilitated getting to know my members of my class.
30. The lab.
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 41
27. Sometimes, I felt they were just a burden because the subject material is hard  
enough in itself.  I don't think that so much of the course should be devoted to CIITN.  
28. The benefits are great.  That was the "real world" part of the course.  Being 
able to solve problems together is part of life.
29. No
30. The group projects went well.
31. The lecture style needs to be changed.  The pace of the lecture was too fast to 
grasp the material.  Slow down and write on the board.
32. (left blank)

Student 42
27. I believe they are a good way to improve grades, and also get to know  
classmates.  However, it does require a lot of out-of-class work.
28. Sort of- our group met to work on assignment, but also organized with other 
groups to work on tests.
29. Take-homes are awesome.  For the 1st time in 5 semesters of Chemistry, I 
will get a good grade and feel that I have learned something.
30. Set grading scale, no good.
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 43
27. Yes
28. Benefits- ideally you can share the workload.  Obstacles- we had 2 members 
that did not share in the work.
29. Me and one other member worked on the take-home exams together.
30. I like how fast we get our exams back, how we always know our grade, how 
the lab points are possible so one bad test doesn't screw you, how there 
are seven exams.  THE TAKE-HOME EXAMS!!!
31. (left blank)
32. I liked the way on Thursdays we talked about the next week's lab.

Student 44
27. Somewhat
28. Obstacle- some group members do not put in effort.  Benefit- less workload.
29. We all live together.
30.  I liked the computer assignments but that was about it.
31. The use of the slides in lecture was very poor.  I felt like I learned very 
little in their class.
32. Teaching style is very ineffective with regard to lecture.

Student 45
27. They connected chemistry to the real world very well.  This was probably my 
favorite part of the class.
28. I thoroughly enjoyed the group projects because I enjoy subjects much more with 
other student interaction and when you can relate the subject to real life.
29. They allowed me to actually be interested in Chemistry at all.
30. Realtionsbons to real life.
31. Teaching style hard to learn from, there is not enough explanations.
32. (left blank)

Student 46
27. Yes
28. (left blank)
29. Yes, I found my collaborative group to be both fun and helpful.  Every member 
was willing to help or explain if someone did not understand something.  I believe I 
have made good friends with my group members.  In fact, we went to the Berg. just to 
let some stress out.
30. (left blank)
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 47
27. Some did, one article helped me write a paper for another class.
28. They give students a chance to meet other people in their major to study with.
29. Yes, we all had a fun outing together.
30. (left blank)
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 48
27. Yes, many topics pertained to chemistry and the real world.
28. Groups are great
29. Yes, we studied for tests, and overall made some great friendships.
30. Group activities, such as CIITN and writing assignments.
31. Clearer responsibilities of what we are going to be tested on.
32. Great class, had fun, as always made chemistry enjoyable.

Student 49
27. (left blank)
28. The groups really helped me with organic chemistry.  I could talk things over 
with my peers and understand my reasoning better.
29. Yes, we met up and would go out and have a good time.
30. Take home test.
31. Needs to slow down on notes.
32. (left blank)

Student 50
27. Yes
28. Benefits- learn to work within a group for an entire semester, make new friends 
and new viewpoints.  Obstacles- people being so different.
29. Yes, we collaborated on the test together and have become friends.
30. The review sessions!!  I love them.  They are where I have learned the most.
31. The lectures, they get really hard to follow from powerpoint, but it is 
also hard to follow on the board.   I learned best at the weekly review sessions.
32. (left blank)

Student 51
27. Somewhat, the ideas were good but it took up a lot of time.
28. Group work affected my amount of time allotted for studying.
29. I enjoyed getting to know other students but the evaluations in the end were not 
very good at outlining who did the extra effort and who was not a benefit to the group.
30. Great job on making the notes available and communicating with students.
31. Too picky on grading chemdraw.  Lighten-up!!  Who cared if our printer doesn't 
shade something perfect-we still put in a lot of EFFORT.
32. You put a lot of effort into students and we really appreciate it.

Student 52
27. Yes
28. I didn't exactly like all the group projects.
29. No
30. You have a lot of assignments to raise your grade.
31. His teaching skills need a lot of improvement.  I hate not having partners in 
lab and think some of his assignments were just busy work, because I didn't learn 
anything from it.
32. (left blank)

Student 53
27. Yes.  It helped me keep up on chemical scientific stuff going on in the 
world.
28. Collaborative learning is very helpful although finding meeting times everyone 
can attend is difficult.
29. Yes, we would all study together and met some great people from this experience.
30. Collaborative learning.
31. Please teach on the board.  The powerpoint slides are difficult to learn 
from.  Work on communications with Denver for assignment number 3.
32. Thanks!

Student 54
27. Some of them were good, but I didn't think we should be tested over them.  It's 
better if you just assign them to read and talk about it in class.
28. I enjoyed the group activities and learned a lot by having group discussions.  
The only hard part is that sometimes some of the members didn't participate and left 
the work for the others to do.
29. Yes, we would get together to study on tests.
30. I thought the reviews on Tuesday nights helped a lot.
31. I believe it would help if Dr. Glaser taught on the chalkboard instead of 
using powerpoint slides because it is difficult to see how the mechanism works 
when he just points to the slide.  Also, it would be helpful if he reviewed in 
class the day before the test.
32. ( left blank)

Student 55
27. Yes, although, the visualization centers did not.  I would suggest having 
an out-of-class session if you feel those are so important.
28. Benefits- learn more through excise group sessions.  Obstacles- people 
showing up for grade and not to learn.
29. Yes, we worked on labs, tests and in fact other classes.
30. I think the lab and review sessions were the best.
31. I would say lecture note style.  I felt like classtime was just re-reading 
the book.  I would like more chalkboard usage.
32. (left blank)

Student 56
27. The CIITN were interesting.  They did relate chemistry to real world issues.
28. Obstacles were that it took a lot of time away learning organic.
29. (left blank)
30. (left blank)
31. The lectures need improvement.  I found two review sessions were very helpful.  
He should lecture like the reviews.
32. (left blank)

Student 57
27. Not at all, no they were a complete waste of both our times, I am convinced 
the only reason we had to do them is because of grant money received by the 
instructor.
28. (left blank)
29. (left blank) 
30.  (left blank)
31. Overhead slides must go.  Explain mechanisms in class.
32.  (left blank)

Student 58
27. Absolutely
28. Instructor has tendency to be way too negative, he is pessimistic- and this 
is an obstacle to learning the material.
29. No
30. (left blank)
31. He needs to stop commenting on the state of the world and focus more on the  
subject matter.  The opinionated critiques of the state of the nation are massive 
distractions.
32. It has always been a horrible world, indeed, it was much worse, this century 
although being the bloodiest, is still wonderful when compared to other times in 
history.

Student 59
27. The CIITN articles were good, but added to the VC it seemed overdone.  
It was a lot of information along with the text to learn for each test.
28. While the group activities are an honest effort.  I think meeting with 5 other 
people is very difficult.  Many of these projects I could of done on my own.
29. No
30. Glaser is always available and willing to help.  He goes an extra mile to open 
computer labs and uses the discussion board.
31. The CIITNs and VCs separately for example, a quiz or extra credit.  It was hard 
for me to study both and really retain information.
32. In the future, the computer lab projects should be individual projects so 
that all the students learn how to use them.

Student 60
27. Yes they were helpful.
28. I believe the benefits outway the obstacles.  It is especially helpful in a 
class like this to have a group to work with.
29. Yes, we always studied for exams and worked on the labs together.
30. I believe that the CIITN allows us to relate what we are studying to the 
real world.  I also believe the lab was very beneficial. 
31. The notes presented in class were not helpful.  I would suggest that the 
instructor makes his own notes rather than use the books.  I felt I was trying 
to memorize the material for a good grade rather than actually learning it. I'm 
afraid this will hurt myself and other students in the future.  Chemical reactions 
need to be explained not just put on the board to be memorized.
32. (left blank)

31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 63
27. Yes, I think you learn more with writing assignments.
28. Group learning is great.  It reveals your weakness/ strengths.
29. No
30. The labs were great.
31. More open to students ideas on why they got an answer.
32. None

Student 64
27. Yes, this was one of my favorite aspects of the class.  If was gratifying 
to be able to apply what I learned outside the classroom.
28. It was very helpful to get several different perspectives on learning. This was 
a big part of the group activities and enhanced my overall learning.
29. Though not so much treated to chemistry, I did make new friends for the 
group work.
30. The part of the class that deserves positive attention is the organization.  
It was very helpful to always be in touched through the blackboard.
31. I sat near the front but still had trouble hearing.  A microphone might help. 
32. (left blank)

Student 65
27. Yes
28. They helped boost our grades, help us get to know other students.
29. Yes, we studied/did take home test together.
30. The use of notes to summarize key concepts.
31. Less specific test questions 
32. Good job.  I thought you were a great teacher, but a little too demanding.

Student 66
27. Yes, but it seems like this should or could be for more credit than just 5.  
I come to your class 4 times a week, go to lab for 4 hours, then have to write 
and use computer skills, so where are my extra hours for doing all the outside 
class stuff.
28. It takes up too much time.
29. No, cause that is all it's meant for not to socialize.
30. Nothing really, I can honestly say I didn't learn anything.
31. This class is too time-consuming.
32.  (left blank)

Student 67
27. Yes, they did; although often the material we were expected to reproduce tests 
was very timid.
28. Benefits- you can easily get help with what you're having trouble with.  
Obstacles- Groups are hard to get together for meetings.
29. The reviews for exams in our groups.
30. I like the end of the semester group projects- it was kind of fun to do it.
31. I think more actual chemistry could be taught. I also think Dr. Glaser teaches 
better on the chalkboard rather than his powerpoint-- he goes over more material 
thoroughly and slower.
32. (left blank)

Student 68
27. Yes
28. It makes you do your own research and then talk about it, so you remember 
it more.
29. Yes, we studied together, worked on lab together and hung out at times even.
30. (left blank)
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 69
27. Yes
28. Learn to work with a group of peers.  Learn to use chem. programs, and learn 
how organic chem. is used in the real world.
29. Not really
30. The group projects were a good experience but not well organized and 
explained.
31. The VC and CIITN should be extra credit on quizzes but not part of the exam.  
More time spent on memorizing than understanding.
32. (left blank)

Student 70
27. Yes, they did.
28. Benefits are that I now know a group of people who I can view as colleagues in 
undergraduate learning, and that we most likely will continue to collaborate.
29. Yes, they extended into holding regular group study sessions.
30. Practical knowledge learned interaction with other students, and inspiration to 
work at this class. 
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 71
27. Yes
28. It gave many perspectives on concepts.  It allowed me to get a better understanding 
of Organic Chem.
29. Yes, we were able to discuss Chem. and other topics in general.  We also were 
able to work on exams, etc.
20. The CIITN project was very interesting and helpful and expanded my view on organic chem.
31. The material that will be covered on the exams needs to be better expressed well 
before exam time.
32. (left blank)

Student 72
27. Somewhat, to many problems, seemed as if we were test rats even though this 
has been done before.  Stress level caused was not worth it.
28. Poor, in a way that it took away from class material that should have been more 
concentrated on.  Good in the way that we were able to work with other people, but 
most of the project seemed to be set-up so that one person would be doing the work, 
that made it difficult.
29. Helped each other with class material support group.
30. That we were given enough points outside of the test to help with grades.  
Like blackboard.
31. More arrow pushing.  Set up for experiment expectations should be communicated 
better and earlier.  Don't tell people that they need to get NY Times, even though I 
enjoyed it, for a while.  Way too much outside work that goes beyond required 
material for class, everyone should have received honors and WI credit.
32. Always had problems with links.  Should only be one website that is home with 
link to blackboard.  Links should be more straightforward.

Student 73
27. Yes
28. The collaborative group activities were helpful in that when doing assignments 
each member of the group had a different perspective and in put which helped to view 
the assignment in different ways.  This helped to achieve the assignments.
29. The collaborative group activities were helpful for me in learning how to 
work as a team and to consider other students point of views.
30. (left blank)
31. Honestly, I will probably leave this class with an A- or B+, a decent grade, but 
I am also learning with little knowledge of Organic 2.  I didn't learn well by the 
style of teaching.  The mechanisms should be taught in another fashion.  It was 
really hard to learn the mechanisms without someone showing step by step method.  
I came to class nearly every session including labs, review sessions and asked for 
TA help when available.  My lab partner and I met to study for the tests and quizzes.  
I am not leaving this class dumb-founded because I didn't study.
32. The visualization centers need to de done with a program move common to the 
campus computers.  The program was very hard to use and was very unbeneficial 
to one for the tests. 

Student 74
27. Yeah!!
28. Collaboration made group projects better because it lets us be open to everyone's 
good input.  So the project is good not just from perspective but from several.
29. Yeah, we studied together for exams and I made good friends.
30. (left blank)
31. I have a good grade in the class, but I didn't think learn anything this 
semester because the style of teaching was very different.  But I think we needed 
some actual arrow pushing organic chemistry- book problems, learn actual chemistry 
and then apply to real world.  We can't apply to real world something we don't know 
or haven't it learned.
32. I think BASICs should be first taught and then additional be added.

Student 75
27. Yes
28. Benefits- shared knowledge
29. Yes- study sessions
30. Use of technology
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 76
27. The succeeded in connecting chemistry to the real world, but I spent so 
much time on them I lost out on understanding the "text" material.
28. Benefits- if you don't understand, someone else does.  See different views.  
Obstacles- getting everyone to participate.  Getting everyone to agree.
29. Yes, we studied together for tests and worked on honors projects together.
30. You can see how enthuastic he is about the subject.  The main goal is for 
us to understand the broader application of chemistry. 
31. Please, please, please write on the board.  The cookie cutter slides of powerpoint 
only frustrate me.  He flips through them so fast that I don't have time to process 
what is in front of me.  Also, I spent so much time working on assignments that I did 
not have time to study the course material.  Please reduce intensity of assignments.
32. Please realize that chemistry is not the entirety of everyone's life.  
Go slower, the choice few understood quickly, but the majority of us take more 
time to learn.  Doing a chapter a week is beyond most people.

Student 77
27. Yes, I found them very helpful.
28. I think it was a good idea.  However, I was a member in a group of 6 very 
busy individuals.  It was often difficult to find a meeting time.  Also, I feel 
as though I took a majority of the work.  It does however help to see others 
point of view.
29. Our group didn't get along well enough to meet other than on the group 
assignments.  However, other friends of mine who have the some level desire and 
goals for this course often found it helpful to meet and discuss certain 
aspects of the course.
30. I enjoyed the many opportunities to show my knowledge of chemistry.
31. I enjoyed the slides and that we could print them out.  It really stunk when 
the overhead broke.  It was difficult to see your drawings, to hear your voice, 
and to pay attention when you had to lecture without your overhead.  Also, numerous 
improvements should be made to assignment 3.  Although I feel it was a good 
assignment, it took a lot of time, time I could have been studying for the test.
32. I enjoyed this class very much and feel that I have a better understanding 
and respect for chemistry than before I took Chem 212.  After 210 I felt I would 
never understand organic.  I know this is no longer true!!

Student 78
27. Yes, they helped me to see how what I was learning truly applied to my life.
28. As I have always experienced, one or two people do almost all the work while the 
others in the group get a good grade that they did not earn.  But even with that, it 
really helped because our group and we are now friends.  We can ask each other for 
help and learn by explaining the information to others.
29. We would meet to study for exams.  Also, we got together to work on our take 
home test.  We became friends.
30. I think I learned a lot in chemistry.  Along with that, this class opened my 
eyes to the huge effects chemistry has on our world.
31. I think you should have suggested problem sets from the textbook so that we 
know what kinds of problems we should understand.
32. This was an excellent class.

Student 79
27. Yes, the CIITN articles helped me to realize that Chemistry is part of many 
important aspects of our daily lives.
28. The group activities were a helpful part of this class/ I didn't see any major 
obstacles.  
29. Our group also studied for tests together as well as many other things.
30. Dr. Glaser very obviously shows a concern about if his students are 
learning and understanding the material.  
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 80
27. Yes, a little.
28. (left blank)
29. A little, we worked on our tests together.
30. (left blank)
31. The assignments are too tedious.  I spent way too much time working on the 
assignments and not enough time studying and learning chemistry.  Cut back on 
the assignments.
32. (left blank)

Student 81
27. Some did, some did not.
28. Benefits- sharing of ideas, learn more.  Obstacles- getting everyone together, 
everyone has different schedules.  Some don't do enough.
29. I made new friends. His website proved very helpful with tons of information, but 
it was almost overwhelming all the information presented there, this cause people to become 
very intimidated.
30. TESTING.  The tests need to be easier and in different format.  There should be 
a curve in the class instead of absolute, then he wouldn't have to give take home 
tests, which kind of defeat the purpose of taking tests.
31. A great guy, with tons of information and is willing to help beyond, just 
the class.  I just think the testing/ grading scheme needs to be altered.

Student 82
27. Yes, I thought the CIITN projects and articles brought real world issues into 
this course.
28. (left blank)
29. On the take home test as well as the group assignments we would sit and relate 
chemistry to the real world and hear other viewpoints or ways to think about 
chemistry.
30. (left blank)
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 83
27. Somewhat, but would rather have spent more time concentrating on the mechanics 
and basics of the course.
28. Learn more by working out problems together.  Hard to get everyone together so 
often because of opposite schedules.
29. Yes, study groups, lab assignments, etc.
30. The labs were great in this class.
31. Professor needs to use his own notes and not the author's notes.  I taught myself 
right out of the book because the notes were useless and expensive to print out.
32. N/A

Student 84
27.  Sometimes- but often a distraction from the course material.
28. The activities helped sometimes, however they often concentrate away from the 
course material- we worked more on the projects and didn't concentrate so much on 
studying for the test.
29. Yes- we got together to study for test.
30. (left blank)
31. Lecture, It was all in the screen, which made it hard to understand the reaction 
mechanisms and why thins behaved/ reacted the way they did.  I would have much 
rather seen lecture done the old- fashioned way- on the blackboard- so I could 
follow along better- also it would make taking notes easier.  I didn't have any 
print quote left.  So I couldn't print the notes. 
32. (left blank)

Student 85
27. Yes, I thought the CIITN projects acted to make the relationship to the real 
world much more prominent.
28. The benefits are numerous but include collaborating, learning people skills 
and getting real world discussions techniques.  The disadvantage is that some 
college students don't take it seriously and either don't show up or don't put 
forth he effort needed.
29. We did some studying together and in some cases made strong friendships.
30. I think that the teaching style and effort Dr. Glaser put into this class 
made it very good and I enjoyed the class very much.
31. I would suggest staying with the technology and "chalk-Talk" mit.
32. Thanks for the great learning experience.

Student 86
27. Yes
28. Students must work together in a real world setting.
29. Studying for tests.
30. Pretty much everything.  Review sessions were very helpful.
31. Once we began having review sessions I thought the class was perfect.  
Without them, I think students struggling with identifying the most important 
ideas and concepts.
32. Excellent work Dr. Glaser!!!

Student 87
27. Reading past CIITN articles was a good learning experience, but when it came to 
producing our own was pointless.  First of all, you are too lazy to even grade the 
projects on your own, so you do peer review.  And then you can't even get things, 
worked out right with Denver.  You are blaming us and saying there is nothing you can 
do.  Having it all due the last week was uncalled for.  You need to get your act together.
28. Working in a group is a good experience, but you do not always lay out 
"rules"effectively.  i.e. computer should be open more.
29. Yes. We did the take home tests together.
30. The padding of grades.  Labs went well.
31. DO NOT teach from slides.  You are just regurgitating the book.  There was no 
reason to come to class if it wasn't for the first 5 minutes when you explained 
assignments.  Tests were extremely hard, they don't cover what I would consider "most 
important topics" in our books.  Get your act together.
32. Learn how to work the lights and projector!!  It's a waste of time to sit and 
watch you fumble around.

Student 88
27. Absolutely, Chemistry in the new is something that we can look at and understand.
28. Benefits- the networking and open problem solving as well as developing openness 
to new ideas.  Obstacles- people's schedules on people with bad attitudes destroy 
the group's success.
29. Yes, I made a couple of friends, one of which I played golf with.
30. The material covered and understanding of computer building.
31. A little more closure on mechanisms.  Did get better as semester continued.
32. Very intelligent professor and a very productive individual who cares  
passionately about his profession and career.

Student 89
27. Yes, they made the importance and relevance of chemistry clear.
28. At the beginning of the semester, Dr. Glaser said that within our group by the 
end we would be "speaking chemistry". As someone who has never understood chemistry, 
I did not believe this was possible.  However, last night, a group member called and 
we discussed various bonding in certain solvents and their mechanisms.  And I understood.
29. Yes, they forced group work, which not all people are used to but will probably 
occur in "real world" situations.
30. I feel like for the first time, I am not only understanding chemistry, but I am 
succeeding at it.
31. Better warning at the beginning as to how much your grade is dependent on keeping 
up with CIITN and VCs.
32. (left blank)

Student 90
27. Yes, the CIITN was a great idea it should be continued.
28. Benefits- include meeting new people and having thriving conversations over 
the subject material.  A big obstacle is laziness within the group, or 1 
particular member who does nothing to help.
29. Yes we often studied the class material together.
30. It is very well organized and you know exactly what you are doing that day 
in lecture.
31. The only problem I had was communication about material included on the in-class 
tests.  We often didn't know what to study
32. (left blank)

Student 91
27. Yes, they opened my eyes to the real world, things going on and how they 
related to chemistry.
28. The benefits are meeting people, having people to work with on other things.  
The obstacles would be that they are very time consuming and time is something 
students really don't have a lot of.
29. Yes, group members became friends and did other non-chemistry things 
together.
30. The group activities and the relatedness of the class to real world issues.  
Prof. is always willing to help.
31. Perhaps, not make assignments so long.  Not enough time for other classes and 
work, etc.!!!!
32. (left blank)

Student 92
27. Yes
28. Obstacles are making time to get everyone there but benefits is it gives 
people a chance to learn from peers.
29. We worked together in tests and talked out of class.
30. Everything I like it and feel I learned a lot.
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 93
27. Basically
28. Benefits-bases our grade less on in-class exams where people get 
performance anxiety and allows us to demonstrate knowledge differently.  
Obstacles, incompatible schedules of group members.
29. We worked on prelabs and studied together.
30. Overall everything going well.
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 94
27. Yes, they gave us real life examples and really made me aware of what I was 
learning and how to apply it.
28. Benefits- constructive criticism.  Obstacles, one bad group member is a pain and 
it'ss hard to find a meeting time on short notice.

30. Instructor is great.
31. Tests are too frequent and material on them is vague.
32. (left blank)

Student 103
27. Not really but they weren't bad test questions, some of them were weak.

help you.
29. Yes, we did lab together and helped each other with the tests.
30. Group projects and lab.
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 110
27. NO, it was taking up a lot of time.  And we can't learn every single detail.  It 
was hard and painful.  We couldn't concentrate on our main stuff.
28. It was fun, but a real hassle to meet with other people since anybodies 
schedules conflicted with each other and that sucked.
29. Ya, I got to know more new people that is all it helped for.  It is a waste 
of time.
30. (left blank)
31. No changes
32. (left blank)

Student 111
27. Yes.
28. It's good because talking about mechanisms teaches as much or more than 
lectures.
29. Take-home test collaboration studying.
30. The instructor shows superior Organic Chemistry knowledge.  This class is really 
challenging, so I fell I've learned something.  No sense of grade inflation due to 
absolute grading scale.  Test statistics are presented to the class.
31. I wish this class were listed as a writing intensive class.
32. Thanks for your obvious investment in the class.  I had both Chem 210 and 
Chem 212with you, and the intensity of both classes leads me to feel confident 
in my org. abilities.

Student 112
27. To a certain extent.  Some of the articles are outdated.
28. We got to share each other's knowledge.
29. No
30. Lectures went well once I was accumulated to the powerpoint presentations.  
Reviews were a GREAT idea.
31. Be clearer of what you want on certain assignments.
32. (left blank)

Student 113
27. It helps to get a better perspective on the subject and it is fun way to 
approach learning.
28. No, not really- I already knew my group members.
29. The lab was fun and so was the group projects.
30. Nothing.  The class was difficult but informative.
31. (left blank)
32. (left blank)

Student 114

Student 115
27. Moderately, sometimes I think you're stretching it to make it fit Chemistry.  The 
CIITN project was too unorganized and poorly explained to benefit me and further my  
understanding of organic chemistry.
28. Benefits, talking with other group members and learning from peers. Obstacles, 
we do actually have other classes and meeting with four other people is almost  
impossible during the end of the semester.  When my group has to contemplate 
skipping lecture to finish assignments, your group idea was obviously a poor idea.
29. The only outside assignment we spent together was in lab and working on the 
take home test.
30. Labs help in hands-on understanding.  The textbook is useful.
31.  Learn how to operate the lights, projector and screen.  Don't waste my time and 
yours by messing with the lights everyday.  Either teach using the chalkboard or the 
projector, not both.  If you use the board, turn on the lights!  We can't see in the 
dark.  Teach your TAs how to grade properly.  There is absolutely no reason why 
every one of my test were graded wrong.  Don't be lazy.  Make your own slides if you 
don't like the book ones.  Grade the CIITN projects yourself instead of pawning it 
off on us. Teach something I couldn't read in the book to us.  Be consistent in 
tests.  Either make there difficult or easy, but don't play mind games.  Don't make 
it seem like pre-med students are the only ones that matter.  Not all of us are pre-med.
32. (left blank)

Student 116
27. Yes, I thought they were wonderful.  I just wish you would have discussed 
them more in class.
28. I felt the projects helped my grade, but were a waste of time.  I would 
have rather spent that time studying the lecture material, because we had so 
many tests.  It was also hard getting everyone together, so I felt like I did 
most of the work.
29. No, I studied with another group of friends.
30. I do like the discussions about current events and how it relates to 
chemistry.
31. The lecture needs to be vastly improved, his teaching style is not effective.  
The use of overheads is confusing and does not allow you to visualize what is 
happening in the reactions.  I don't mind memorizing numbers, but you need to take 
some lecture lessons from Dr. [name omitted].
32. The tests are confusing and I miss so many points because I don't realize 
exactly all the components of the question.  You need to list numerically exactly 
what needs to be seen for credit.

Student 117
27. Kind of, but not really.
28.  It really doesn't add a lot to our knowledge of chemistry.  It mostly 
resembled busy work.
29. NO
30. Very little, it is almost over.
31. Dr. Glaser is the worst professor I've ever had.  He was very egotistical, and 
when confronted about something he blamed the accuser for not working hard enough.  
He tested over marginal details not what was the meat of organic chemistry.  I felt 
I needed to memorize useless facts for the test, rather than understand what was 
going on in chemistry.
32. His grading was terrible.  It is setup so that the entire class will get something 
between a B- and an A-.  It really makes it difficult to distinguish yourself from the 
crowd and earn an A.  He was very pretty and didn't change his style of criticism.  
Also, he is the laziest professor I have ever had.  He is giving us 2 take-home 
tests.  The answers for the first take home tests were available online at a website 
where Dr. Glaser took the questions instead of writing them himself.
