Title of the PhD project:
A new experimental/historical/interactive blended approach for introduction of fundamentals of Chemistry through Spectroscopy.

Abstract of the PhD project:
This project aims to develop and realize a new teaching approach of chemistry fundamentals, as molecular and electronic structure of matter, for high school and first year of university. This project is focused on the development of a dissertation on electronical structure of the matter, without the quantistic chemistry as instrument, but with experimental/historical/interactive blended approach based on Spectroscopy. Spectroscopy was able in the past to give experimental evidences of the structure of matter before the mathematical and physical rationalization. Nevertheless, recently, Uv-vsible spectroscopy is employed in school only as instrument for quantitative analysisi, for specific applications, without highlighting the fascinating phenomenon of the light-matter interaction. This project aims to introduce the electronic structure through spectroscopy, starting from actual knowledge in Italian school and from international innovative expertizes on didactic methodologies. In the first phase, a didactic pathway on introduction of spectroscopy will be introduced to a group of graduating classes in a technical institute to evaluate important and critical points relative to learning ability of chemical fundamentals and teaching approach. In the second phase a new teaching approach will be built and based on: 1) historical /epistemiological approach on spectroscopy 2) laboratorial approach, as a STEM, with development of new teaching experiences with active didactic methodologies.3) digital approach on interactive digital platform with flipped classroom modality. The third phase will involve a comparative study conducted by secondary school students and first university students in parallel, to evaluate the efficiency of the learning pathway of fundamentals of chemistry.
