A video lecture by Rahul Chopra, TROP ICSU and IISER Pune on climate change educational resources that Chemistry teachers can use in their classrooms. These educational resources integrate climate change understanding with the core curriculum in Chemistry. This video lecture is part of an online e-learning course (MOOC) titled ‘Climate Change: A Guide For Teachers Of All Disciplines’ developed by the National Resource Centre (NRC) on Climate Change at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune as part of the Annual Refresher Programme in Teaching (ARPIT), Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India.
This video lecture presents several lesson plans and teaching tools that Chemistry teachers can use to teach topics in their discipline using climate related activities, case studies and examples. It also includes discussions on the use of digital pedagogy for effective classroom instruction. This lecture presents how Chemistry teachers can teach topics such as Biogeochemical Cycles, The Carbon Cycle, Atomic Number, Atomic Mass, Isotopes, Molecular Structure of Compounds, The Electromagnetic Spectrum, pH Scale, Acids and Bases, Ocean Acidification, Chemical Weathering, The Urey Reaction, Carbon Chemistry, among others.
