"Sliding Toward Inquiry:
Using the Essential Features of Inquiry to Improve Learning in the Laboratory Environment"

About the Speaker
After a high school teacher told her that girls couldn’t “do chemistry,” MaryKay Orgill entered Brigham Young University as a chemistry major (B.S. 1995). She was surprised to find that she actually liked chemistry—and loved teaching it; so she enrolled in a graduate program at Purdue University to study both biochemistry (M.S. 1999) and chemical education (Ph.D. 2003).

As a first-year faculty member with a joint appointment in biochemistry and science education at the University of Missouri-Columbia, she took on the extra challenge of teaching a high school chemistry class. In 2004, she moved to UNLV, where her research focuses on using qualitative methods to examine students’ understandings of chemistry and biochemistry concepts. Dr. Orgill is now an Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (USA).

She has delivered professional development courses designed to increase the science and mathematics content knowledge of local elementary and secondary teachers. She is also involved with faculty professional development as the principal investigator of the Advancing Chemistry by Enhancing Learning in the Laboratory (ACELL) project.

About the Subject
In recent years, there has been a repeated call for science instructors to improve learning in the laboratory environment by modifying laboratory activities to make them less “cookbook” and more inquiry-oriented. But what does that mean? What is “inquiry?” What does it look like in a laboratory learning environment, and what can an instructor do to make a laboratory activity more inquiry-oriented? In this interactive lecture, we will discuss four historical laboratory instructional styles, their relationships to inquiry, variations of inquiry, and how instructors can use the “Five Essential Features of Inquiry” to make their laboratory activities more inquiry-oriented.
