I am an admitted tech geek. Often a first adopter of new tech for the classroom, I love to experiment with the tech that our students use so comfortably. These experiments aren't always successdul though.
Today in class we talked through the first tutorial to appear in Organometallics. The story behind this can been seen in the previous BITeS post. Our discussion in class was quite interesting. Unfortunately, the timing of the publication of this tutorial did not allow me to be quite as prepared as I will be in the future, but it was still a useful discussion.
A recent post in BITeS discussed the article in Inorganic Chemistry focused on the different flavors of inorganic chemistry courses taught to undergraduates. If you haven't read this paper, I strongly encourage you to do so. The editor, Bill Tolman, recognized that this paper was important to the inorganic community and therefore worthy of publication in Inorganic Chemistry. The paper was also recently promoted on the Facebook page of the journal.
The deadline for San Diego has passed, but it is not too late for you to be included among the presenters in the IONiC Teaching and Research at the Frontiers of Inorganic Chemistry sessions! This Friday (October 23rd...aka Mole Day) the MAPS portal for abstract submissions will be open for 24 hrs. It will close at 11:59 pm EDT.
Dear friends of VIPEr,
