Summer SLiThErs

As we head into June, it is time to be thinking about upcoming SLiThEr events. While the entire schedule is not quite set yet, I can provide a brief glimpse into what could be coming up this summer.

Upcoming SLiThErs

Submitted by Chip Nataro / Lafayette College on Thu, 04/07/2022 - 13:53

After a brief break due to a live ACS meeting and the struggle to try to catch up after that meeting, it is time to have our next SLiThEr. For those of you who might be unfamiliar with what a SLiThEr is, it is a Zoom presentation/discussion of a topic of interest to the community. These events are recorded and posted to our YouTube channel. You can get a list of past SLiThErs and links to the videos here. For April, our SLiThErs have a theme of inclusivity.

SLiThEr #31

Please join us for our 31st SLiThEr event on February 16 at 3pm EDT! In this session, facilitators  Wayne Pearson, Tim Herzog and Kim Mullane will introduce you to the benefits of using Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) in your classroom.  POGIL is a student-centered, group-learning instructional strategy and philosophy developed through research on how students learn best.

A real live VIPEr Social "Hour"

Submitted by Chip Nataro / Lafayette College on Mon, 02/07/2022 - 15:29

Hi everyone. If you are heading to San Diego for ACS we are planning on doing a live social "hour" get together on Sunday, March 20 at the Tin Roof. These have been great community events in the past and are hopeful that we will be able to enjoy some time together in San Diego. As we have all learned in the past two years, I must say that these are the plans as of right now, stay tuned for any changes. ACS has made some adjustments to the 'normal' meeting schedule and these have caused us to adjust too.

MARM TCNJ 2022 - What are poor choices to start with on Wordle but good choices for Inorganic Chemists?

Submitted by Chip Nataro / Lafayette College on Mon, 01/24/2022 - 22:38

Just wanted to let the community know that we will be at MARM this June doing an undergraduate research and undergraduate teaching session at the meeting. This meeting will be held at The College of New Jersey in Ewing, NJ from June 1-4. Abstract submission is open now and you can learn more here. For the undergraduate research sessions, oral presentations by undergraduate students will not only be welcome and encouraged, but also strongly preferred.
