B Objectives 1. What is the main purpose for this course? The course is intended to provide students with an introduction to the fundamentals of the chemistry

of the lanthanides and actinides (f-elements) with main focus on their chemical, spectroscopic and

magnetic properties. Moreover, the course aims to introduce the student to coordination and

organometallic chemistry of the f-elements and their potential applications in different fields.

2. Briefly describe any plans for developing and improving the course that are being implemented. (e.g. increased use of IT or web based reference material, changes in content as a result of new research in the field) Tutorial, reading assignments and relevant research papers using university online library will

be considered to enrich the scope of the course The course material will be posted on the Website that could be accessed by the students

enrolled in the course. Utilizing various internet resources that offer informative details to support the lecture course

material will be encouraged. C. Course Description (Note: General description in the form used in Bulletin or handbook) Course Description: In this course we look at f-block metals (lanthanides and actinides). Topics covered are, f-Orbitals, sources of the lanthanides and actinides, oxidation state, atom and ion sizes and the lanthanide contraction, spectroscopic and magnetic properties, lanthanides/actinides metals, inorganic, coordination and organometllic compounds of the lanthanides and actinides.

G Course Evaluation and Improvement Processes

1 Strategies for Obtaining Student Feedback on Effectiveness of Teaching

• Regular evaluation of the theoretical parts of the course to identify the weaknesses area • Performance appraisal form filled up by each student to show level of fulfillment • Confidential completion of standard course evaluation questionnaire by the e-TU site

(compulsory) 2 Other Strategies for Evaluation of Teaching by the Instructor or by the Department

• A statistical regular review and analysis of the students’ achievement in the department • Prepare a questionnaire which should be filled by the students at the end of the term. The

questionnaire should be after that analyzed and carefully studied • Independent assessment of standards achieved by students

3 Processes for Improvement of Teaching • Updating through more reading books and articles related to the course • Improve relations between instructor and students • Attending regular workshops related to the course and teaching methods as well • Provide the teaching staff members with all the references and electronic resources

form committees to follow up progress and work on improvement 4. Processes for Verifying Standards of Student Achievement (e.g. check marking by an independent member teaching staff of a sample of student work, periodic exchange and remarking of tests or a sample of assignments with staff at another institution)

• Check marking of the answer sheets of the final exam with other staff • Check progress level of the students (this can be done by an independent teacher by reviewing

students’ records and compare the students’ work with another from a different institute) 5 Describe the planning arrangements for periodically reviewing course effectiveness and planning for improvement.

• Review and analyze Student’s feedback on the quality of the course • Consulting other faculty members or collaborators in overseas universities for their views on

the method of quality of improvement • Comparison between boys and girls (students) performance. • Comparison between the performances of students in the current course with the students who

took the course in the past two years • Compare the syllabus with the syllabus of standard universities • Exchange of experiences and opinions between faculty members • Update of course contents to meet the current students' educational needs. • Use of e learning facilities to enhance student abilities to learn and improve
