SATLC applications as examples for systemic chemistry education reform in the global age

  • AFM Fahmy


Systemic Approach to Teaching and Learning [SATL] has evolved in the field of teaching and learning chemistry starting in 1997, as a fruitful cooperation between Fahmy, AFM (Egypt) and Lagowski, JJ (USA). It is focused on the students and their good teaching and learning and encompasses instruction that encourages active learning, reciprocity and cooperation between students, and between students and their local and global contexts. It is also used as a vehicle to engage the students in a deep learning that focuses on relating ideas and making connection between new and prior knowledge. As applications of SATLC I present here systemic chemistry related units experimented in Egyptian secondary schools and universities with examples on systemic assessment.
