One of the goals of this course is to increase student engagement in and retention of the material covered in Analytical Chemistry. The use of a flipped classroom model of instruction has been shown to improve both of these areas. To address the areas of student problem solving, traditional quantitative analysis, and modern analytical methods, the course was designed with three major subsections: problem solving, equilibrium, and spectrophotometry. Planning the flipped course started by borrowing heavily from resources available from the Active Learning section on the Analytical Sciences Digital Library (www.asdlib.org). Modification and conversion of these materials to a flipped classroom environment ranged from straight-forward to extremely difficult. Successes, failures, student comments, and plans for the next iteration will be presented.
