Teaching Bonding with Nicolai and Henry!

Submitted by Sheila Smith, University of Michigan- Dearborn

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.  

Our speaker this summer will be Nicolai Lehnert, from UM-AA ( Professor Lehnert's work bridges the fields of bioinorganic, bioorganometallic and biomimetic chemistry. This workshop will concentrate on how to use results from his research to teach structure and bonding.  

This workshop will be held in Dearborn, MIfrom June 20-23, 2018.

Our workshops have proven to be a valuable professional development experience for past attendees. If you'd like to apply please fill in the application form contained at the following link.

We'll keep you plenty busy for the duration of the workshop, but you may want to extend your stay. Dearborn is minutes from downtown Detroit (currently one of Lonely Planet's top10 cities to visit, and from Dearborn is easy to get to by planes, trains, or automobiles. We will provide housing, but you're on your own for travel.

If you have any questions, please contact me.
