Analytical chemistry, scholarship of teaching and learning

Professional Interests

Dr. Kathryn Kloepper teaches Quantitative Analysis and a summer online course for non-majors that includes hands-on labs. She previously taught General Chemistry, Instrumental Analysis, advanced lab courses, and two of the Great Books courses — Classical Cultures (includes the Republic, Nicomachean Ethics, the Elements, and the Aeneid), and Hebrew and Christian Traditions (includes excerpts from the Old and New Testaments, Augustine’s Confessions, and Summa Theologica).

Undergraduate researchers in the Kloepper group learn how to help evaluate approaches for engagement and learning in chemistry courses, including courses for non-majors. Methods for data collection and analysis come from the fields of the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) and chemical education research (CER).

Prior to SoTL and CER work with undergraduates, 16 Mercer students worked with Dr. Kloepper between 2009-17 in her analytical chemistry research lab on biosurfactant discovery and kaolin characterization.
