Cover: Illustrating the Human Side of Teaching and Learning

Those involved in teaching and learning chemistry interact with the science in ways that are unique, as noted in this issue's editorial in which Norbert Pienta discusses . For example, the cover shows students learning chemistry in a course that uses an approach to encourage student interaction and minimize instructor lecturing. In this integrated learning environment, the space is designed to facilitate interactions between small groups of students with guidance from peer-learning assistants. Students are grouped at tables where they are encouraged to interact within their smaller group as well as with the other groups on activities that emphasize conceptual understanding.
