We are excited to announce our next VIPEr summer workshop!
Our focus is changing slightly from past workshops, but we will still follow our successful model of having (mostly) PUI/teaching faculty interact directly with primarily research R1 faculty to build content pieces for the classroom based on their research.
This past fall, a bumper crop of junior and senior chemistry majors enrolled in my inorganic laboratory course. In fact, we had enough student interest that we had to open a second weekly 4-hour lab section. The combined group of 18 students ran five experiments of my choosing and then spent two weeks at the end of the semester engaged in nine different independent projects. (See my syllabus LO describing the course here.)
Good news! The new NSF grant allows us to bring back the popular summer content building workshops. Since the focus of the new grant is on development of a sophomore inorganic curriculum, the content workshops will be largely in support of curricular development for that course.
