Talk Title: The Role of Frameworks in the Development of Instructional Resources


This presentation will illustrate the role theoretical and practical frameworks may play in the development of instructional resources that specifically aim to promote the visualization of chemical phenomena. Three instructional resources will be highlighted to demonstrate how frameworks serve as the foundation in the design and development of pedagogically sound resources. In one example the process is grounded on an analogy framework to study localized surface plasmon resonance while the Cognitive Model of Drawing Construction serves as the foundation for the development of 3D printed macromolecules to study non-covalent interactions.  A technology-driven virtual environment tool will be briefly described to demonstrate the interconnectivity of multiple frameworks as support in addressing visually demanding chemistry tasks.
