Chemistry Professor Published in International Journal


The Journal of Chemical Education has published a paper written by Kelly B. Butzler, associate professor of chemistry at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

The paper, “Flipping at an Open-Enrollment College,” was featured in a special 2015 edition of the journal focused on “flipped classrooms.”

Butzler is an avid educational advocate for flipped classrooms – a blended learning approach to standard classrooms. Flipped classrooms move lectures online, outside of class, and move assignments into the classroom, where teachers can provide guidance and answer questions.

The Journal of Chemical Education is the official journal of the Division of Chemical Education of the American Chemical Society. Launched in 1924, the international journal publishes peer-reviewed articles and related information as a resource to chemical education professionals.

Butzler’s paper was the result of a presentation she gave at a summer 2014 ConfChem conference hosted by ACS. ConfChem is the oldest, ongoing online conference in the chemical sciences.

A resident of Jersey Shore and a native of Red Lion, Butzler has taught at Penn College for 16 years. She holds a Doctorate of Education, specializing in e-learning, from Northcentral University; a master’s degree in organic chemistry and a bachelor’s degree in science education from North Carolina State University; and a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Gettysburg College.
