Abstract:   (663 Views)
Many disciplines in the collection of medical sciences and engineering are based on the basis of chemistry. In order to continue teaching learners in the coronavirus disease situation and to continue the curriculum, various solutions have been proposed and presented, among which it is expected that using technology, the method of educators changes from the traditional approach. New ideas that learners encounter in the face of abstract concepts of chemistry are often outside their conceptual understanding and often lead to alternative and misunderstood concepts. Learners also face additional difficulties in understanding abstract concepts in the online and offline virtual learning space. In order to overcome the problems of understanding concepts in learners and improve learning in virtual space, educators can use appropriate analogies in chemistry classes that create a kinetic scheme in the minds of learners. Therefore, in order to create more understanding in the virtual training of courses related to chemistry and biochemistry in the coronavirus disease situation, it is necessary for the virtual teacher to try to compensate the lack of face-to-face communication by providing learning activities appropriate to the abstract nature of scientific concepts. The instructor's familiarity with this subject and the preparation of content based on animation techniques and dynamic graphic images that facilitate movement representation in the analogies used in the learner's mind are recommended instead of one-sided lectures in online virtual classes or offline content.
