Student Recognition - 2018 ACS DIC Undergrad Award in Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Barbara Reisner, James Madison University

Graduation always leaves me in a reflective mood. It's a thrill to watch our graduates march across a stage and think about all of the things they've accomplished over the last four years. It also made me remember that I needed to submit the form for JMU's nominee for the 2018 ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry Undergraduate Award in Inorganic Chemistry!

Time to give a little help to my friends - another VIPEr community challenge

Submitted by Barbara Reisner, James Madison University

This is the second year that I’ve taught JMU’s foundation level course in inorganic chemistry since VIPEr has been around. VIPEr has allowed me to adapt and adopt ideas from the community, and I think my course is much the better for it.  This year, both the existing LOs and new ones generated from our community challenges have positively impacted my class.

Reflections on student learning

Submitted by Barbara Reisner, James Madison University

I can’t believe that the only thing left in my foundation inorganic course is the final final exam. (No the second final isn’t a typo. I give an assessment of key concepts exam and an ACS Exam.) I’m sure that I’m more excited about these exams than my students. A few of them are eager to prove what they know. I’m excited to see what they’ve learned (and I’m even more excited to see how the Foundations of Inorganic Chemistry exam from the ACS Exams Institute is functioning)!

Inorganic Announcements

Submitted by Barbara Reisner, James Madison University

It's Friday. I've just finished my first week of classes and I'm checking some things off of my "first week of classes to do list." Two of these things are related to the broader inorganic chemistry community - the ACS DIC Undergraduate Award in Inorganic Chemistry and the new Foundations of Inorganic Chemistry Exam being developed by the ACS Exams Institute.
