Jack F. Eichler, UCR Distinguished Teaching Professor and Associate Professor of Teaching in Chemistry (LSOE) joins Traci on today’s podcast. Topics of discussion include the difference between a teaching professor and a research professor.  They also speak about the reason why tuition costs still need to be maintained at research universities despite virtual learning.  Jack emphasizes the impact of remote learning for chemistry students that are unable to use the necessary resources during COVID and the potential effect it will have on their future careers.  He also speaks to how evaluation has helped demonstrate or evaluate educational outcomes and what UCR is known for as a university!
