1 Principles of Chemistry I University of Maryland Eastern Shore Goals of the Maryland Course Redesign Initiative (MCRI, ) – Adopt new methods to improve student learning outcomes – Reduce institutional costs – Release instructional resources for other purposes Population – Caters to science and health professions students 20% of freshman class – 73% Freshman Course Goals – Basic atomic and molecular theory – Nomenclature – Reaction stoichiometry – Gas laws Academic/Administrative Course Issues – inconsistent knowledge of incoming students – 55% student retention rate – lack of coordination among the 6 professors leading to course drift and inconsistent learning outcomes
