Do you have a favorite In-Class Activity that you could share with the VIPEr community? Our second Community Challenge is to submit a new In-Class Activity learning object with "2019 Community Challenge #2" in the title. We will be collecting all these and awarding a random prize of an Element Card Deck (see description of my activity and link below) to one of those who contribute by February 15. If you need a refresher on how to submit a learning object on VIPEr, check out our step by step guide.

The leadership team for the Summer 2017 Workshop (Barb, Chip, Shirley, Hilary and Kate) is pleased to announce (just in time for the beginning of the fall semester!) 13 new learning objects that were developed during our “An IONiC Workshop on VIPEr and Literature Discussions” at Franklin & Marshall College in early June.
The IONiC VIPEr group has enough funds at the end of our grant to host one additional workshop for about 16 participants.
Are you getting excited about the upcoming academic term? Are you looking for new things to use in the classroom or trying to find your old favorites on VIPEr? VIPEr’s Team Bug has something that might help!
Chip, Joanne, and I are spending a blustery fall break in Québec City connecting with the SoTL community for the 14th annual International Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Conference (ISSOTL 14). We’re excited to be sharing some of the things we’ve learned from the VIPEr community and workshops with this broader education and faculty development audience.
This summer the IONiC VIPEr folks are going to be running a 5-day NSF-funded workshop on “Bioinorganic Applications of Coordination Chemistry” at Northwestern University.
