Dr. Laurie S. Starkey
| Professor, teaching Organic Chemistry
lecture and laboratory classes.
I have authored an introductory organic synthesis textbook, developed online laboratory tutorials, Blackboard online prelab quizzes, and created o-chem lessons for Educator.com. I am also Cal Poly Pomona's Calibrated Peer Review (CPR) administrator, I serve as a Peer Reviewer for MERLOT, and I enjoy giving chemistry career presentations.

A set of online practice exercises focusing on alkene chemistry have been developed. A study on the effectiveness of these tutorials is currently underway and volunteers are needed. Volunteers will be asked to explore a tutorial and take a brief survey at the end. You can spend as much or as little time as you choose with the tutorial, and you can work at your own pace. It is expected that the problem set will take approximately 30 minutes to explore and the survey should only take 5-10 minutes. If you find that you are short on time, you may end the tutorial at any point and proceed directly to the survey (there is a link to the survey from the tutorial and another link is provided below). Because this material is relevant to your CHM 314 and CHM 315 course material, participating in this study and working with the tutorial is likely to be beneficial to you.
