This collection of learning objects was created to celebrate the National ACS Award Winners 2022 who are members of the Division of Inorganic Chemistry. The list of award winners is shown below.
A collection of all of the IONiC VIPEr SLiThErs (Supporting Learning with Interactive Teaching: a Hosted, Engaging Roundtable). These events are short presentations on a topic followed by a period of discussion between the presenter and live participants. Each of these events is recorded and posted to the IONiC VIPEr YouTube Channel.
We are currently collecting data on the use of VIPEr materials in support of a future grant proposal. Please help keep this community functioning by taking a few minutes to respond. You can access the survey through this link. All answers are anonymous, but you have the option at the end of the survey to give us permission to quote you.
If you are a registered VIPEr faculty user, you may have already taken this survey. Thank you for your help!
Please join us on November 16th at 4:00 pm EST (1:00 pm PST) for a presentation and discussion with Professor Marilyn Mackiewicz from Oregon State University titled “Inclusive Leadership: Your role in Creating Cultures of Belonging Where Everyone Can Thrive”.
Please join us for SLiThEr #56: What can CUR do for you? on October 26th at 4:00pm EST.
Have you ever wondered what resources are available to you at the Council of Undergraduate Research (CUR)? Come out and join us as Bridget Gourley (DePauw University), Joe Reczek (Denison University), and Kari Stone (Lewis University) discuss getting involved in CUR from the perspectives of a long-time representative, the chair of the chemistry division of CUR, and a fairly new division representative. Sign up here.
I saw Amanda Cook present this work (and another paper, Organometallics, 2022, 41, 997) at the Organometallics Gordon Conference in summer 2023 and while I was furiously taking notes, I knew that I wanted to teach this paper. The paper elucidates the mechanism of oxidative addition of tertiary silanes to palladium zero phosphine complexes.
I am moving away from teaching the Goldberg paper (still one of my favorites) and instead wanted to teach just the highlights as part of my seminar class in organometallic chemistry this fall. I created this shorter version of the activity to use in class. I did NOT have them read the paper in advance, hence the summaries in the LO itself.
Please join us on October 12th at 2 pm Eastern for SLiThEr #55 presented by Judith Currano titled "Chemical information meets artificial intelligence: The continued need for information literacy training". This presentation will be an abridged-version of Judith's recent fall ACS meeting presentation which explores how research search engines perform searches and how to train students to better utilize these resources. Please share this event with your students and register here for the Zoom link: https://forms.gle/G5DsS4YRpN14hA2j8
Join us for SLiThEr #54 with Amanda Reig (Ursinus College), Caleb Tatebe (Presbyterian College), and Ariela Kaspi-Kaneti (University of La Verne) on August 28rd at 3:00pm EST.
In this SLiThEr, our presenters will discuss the process of applying for PUI faculty positions. Our panelists will share their experiences from the points of view of those who have been on search committees and those who have been recently hired. Come learn more about what to expect and bring your questions! Please share this event with anyone you think may be interested!
