The approach has been employed mostly within the physical chemistry courses, but also in the first-year general chemistry course and the third-year process technology course. The implementation details have been progressively optimized over the years, above all by increasing flexibility to facilitate adaptations to the characteristics of different student groups (characteristics that may differ both across courses and in relation to the changing attitudes and preparation of incoming groups of students from year to year).
