Kari Stone (Lewis University) and Kyle Grice (DePaul University) discuss the implementation of course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) at their schools.
Chip Nataro (Lafayette College) leads a live discussion at MARM 2022 held at the College of New Jersey. Topics include what is taught in inorganic chemistry courses and labs as well as the IONiC community in general.
Delmar Larsen (UC - Davis) and Kathryn Haas (Duke) describe the Libretext project with a particular focus on needs within the Inorganic Chemistry curriculum.
This collection features learning objects created to highlight the work of LGBTQIAN+ inorganic chemists in celebration of Pride Month (June) 2022.
This is a general assignment given prior to discussing a paper in class. Students are asked to read a particular literature paper, and then fill out the template giving the citation information of the paper and: three (3) new things they learned from the paper, two (2) questions that reading the paper raised for them or left unanswered, and one (1) reference cited by the paper that the student thinks is worth reading and why. The assignment helps seed the discussion prior to class, and gives the instructor some information about specific details to discuss to fill in gaps in the students'
Today we are joined by Dr. Barbara Reisner as she discusses the process implemented in a recent faculty search to reduce bias in the hiring process.
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.
This LibreTexts module by Dr. Tom Neils and Dr. Stephanie Schaertel provides a clear and thorough explanation of why some biochemistry and organic chemistry textbooks get the pKa of water wrong. The pKa of water at 25 ºC is 14.0 and not 15.7. This module describes the derivation of the correct value and describes why the value of 15.7 should not be used.
This website displays interactive models of the unit cell contents of simple cubic, body-centered cubic, face-centered cubic, and hexagonal close-packed structures, in addition to several simple ionic compounds. Relationships between the close-packed atomic layers, the unit cell contents, and the structures of related ionic materials are highlighted.
