Professor Jeffrey M. Zaleski
Professor Zaleski's research primarily focuses on synthesis and the use of various steady state and time-resolved spectroscopic methods including optical absorption, Raman, and circular dichroism to investigate the structure and kinetics of biologically relevant intermediates involved in enzyme and drug-related reaction mechanisms. This information is important for determining the pathways by which multistep biochemical reactions occur.
In addition to the significant evidence that CALM is effective, students also perceive that CALM aids them in learning the material. Midway through the first semester of CALM's use, we also collected student opinions about their experience with CALM (297 respondents). Of all the students taking the survey, 73% described CALM as either “extremely” or “very useful” in helping them learn the material presented in the course; only 8% felt was only “slightly useful” or “not useful at all”.
