Did anyone get the license plate of that truck?

Submitted by Chip Nataro, Lafayette College

Finals week has just started and all I can say is "Wow." It was a busy semester for me just as I am sure it was for you our loyal BITeS readers. I've added a few more things to my list of things I wish I had learned about being a professor before I got started as one. Someday that will make for an interesting BITeS, but today is certainly not that day. I've also learned that "because I am stupid" is more often than not a good answer to any question that starts with "Why did you...?" (Followed by "and I'm sorry" when appropriate.)

A few changes have happened to the VIPEr website overnight! We're rolling out the web content for the next phase of the NSF supported IONiC VIPEr project! And we're super excited to introduce the first cohort of VIPEr Fellows, along with Flo's new snakey BFF, Feller!

CUREs in Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory?

Submitted by Kyle Grice, DePaul University

Here on VIPEr, we share our LO’s with the community so that they can implement them in their classrooms and provide feedback. These LO’s are meant to be small pieces that can be dropped in to any course. We have recently been expanding our views, looking at whole classes (See the "Grand Experiment").
