Abstract

The module ‘Concepts in Chemistry’ (CH4005) was designed in response to a requirement for a new curriculum and was introduced to the first-year undergraduate ‘Molecular and Pharmaceutical Sciences’ (MPS) student cohort in 2012/13. The module comprises several elements, which previously made up two separate modules and although these were integrated smoothly into a single module, this paper discusses the evaluation of the module one year after its inception and suggests some options for a redesign.
