Event Details

Faculty Learning Community - Active Learning

This group is open to invited faculty only.

 

Facilitator

Dr. Sloop

Dr. Joseph Sloop - Assistant Dean and Professor of Chemistry

As an educator, Dr. Sloop is committed to classroom and laboratory instruction and strongly believes that effective teaching requires an underlying philosophy of both how and what one learns. These components of learning are constructed in the mind of the student, he believes; knowledge cannot be transferred directly from the teacher to the learner, so the teacher must call on the totality of his or her own experience to inspire and facilitate learning in each student.

Sloop's teaching experience includes Physical Science, Survey of chemistry II, General Chemistry, Introductory Organic Chemistry I/II, Organic Chemistry for Environmental Engineers, Advanced Organic Chemistry, Environmental Toxicology and Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents. His research interests include the synthesis of high-energy heterocyclic materials, fluorinated heterocycles and biologically important triketones via fluorine-containing synthons and direct fluorination techniques. He is also interested in LFER and QSAR studies of organic reaction systems, as well as kinetics and thermodynamic studies of sigmatropic rearrangements.

Sloop’s chemistry text, Succeeding in Organic Chemistry: A Systematic Problem-Solving Approach to Mastering Structure, Function and Mechanism (AuthorHouse Publishing) was published in 2010 and has been well-received. He is also a co-author of several recent scientific and educational articles, including “Synthesis and Reactivity of Fluorinated Cyclic Ketones: Initial Findings” (2014), “Conformational Analysis, Modeling, Stereochemistry and Optical Activity of Cyclohexane Derivatives” (2013) and “Novel Fluorinated Indanone, Tetralone and Naphthone Derivatives: Synthesis and Unique Structural Features” (2012).
