lunch&LEARN: Using web-based computational chemistry software to teach first-year students

In this session of lunch&LEARN, Luc Patiny, chemistry and chemical engineering lecturer at EPFL, will present a series of online tools he uses to teach interactive courses to his first-year students. 
Providing his students with the same web-based tools used in research and the industry, Patiny enables them to delve into exploratory learning while also acquiring practical experience by solving problems of increasing complexity.
After a brief introduction during the lecture, students solve series of online exercises supervised by teaching assistants. 
Over the years, Patiny and his colleagues have developed over 300 open-source javascript libraries allowing students to apply and understand a range of computational methods.
This lunch&LEARN session is an opportunity for the EPFL teaching community to discover examples and ideas of interactive teaching in line with the AVP-E’s flexible/hybrid teaching commission.
For the first time, lunch&LEARN will be hybrid!
