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.
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.
"Guess Who?" is a two player board game in which the object is to guess the identity of a character by asking questions about their appearance or features. This activity uses a similar game mechanic to identify concepts, models, and historical figures from inorganic chemistry.
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.
Drs. Lori Watson (Earlham), Adam Johnson (Harvey Mudd), and Kyle Grice (DePaul) discuss how they have incorporated computational methods into their teaching and research, how to get started with computations, and some useful resources. The link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E36Mg0OKFKU
