Just a brief reminder (and plug) that abstract submissions for BCCE 2010 are just around the corner. A complete list of symposia is available at the conference website (www.bcce2010.org). While there isn't a specific inorganic chemistry symposium, there are many topics that I believe will be of particular interest to the VIPEr community (e.g., using history in teaching, online homework, clickers, bonding theory usage in chemistry, integration of research and teaching, etc.).
My "plug" is for the symposium and accompanying workshop I'm co-organizing with Owen Priest (Northwestern) on adding ____casts to your chemistry teaching toolbox. If you've had experience using screencasts/podcasts/vidcasts/???casts in your teaching, we'd love for you to share your thoughts in the symposium. If you haven't, but have always wanted to, consider attending both the symposium and workshop!
I look forward to seeing lots of VIPEr members in Texas this summer!
