Title: Leveraging Extended Reality to Enhance Student Learning in Organic Chemistry
Shadi will share highlights from her recently co-authored published article that assesses the effect of authentic visualization and interaction types on learning a particular scientific concept. 

This event is Part I of the CTSI SoTL Summer Series that showcases our U of T instructors’ participation in SoTL conferences, the 2023-24 CTSI SoTL Writing Cohort, in SoTL and Learning Analytics initiatives and in some cases recent publications flowing from these activities. The presentation topics are diverse and fall within the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) and Discipline-Based Educational Research (DBER) in higher education. All presentations address presenters’ efforts to understand ways to enhance student learning and employ theoretical frameworks and systemic inquiry to meet these goals. Presenters will share their research goals/questions, research design, methods and core findings. There will be time set aside for a Q&A. Participants are welcome from all SoTL experience levels.
