I'm trying to revise my inorganic class - any thoughts?

Submitted by Kyle Grice / DePaul University on Mon, 01/18/2016 - 11:40

Hi All,

I am teaching inorganic for the second time this coming spring quarter (10 week quarter, meets twice a week, with a holiday that takes away a day) and I have decided to go more non-linearly than usual through the text (MFT). I would really appreciate your thoughts on this as a group of professors with extensive experience teaching inorganic. My students are juniors and seniors, some of which have had some p-chem, some of which have not, and most of who have not had much exposure to inorganic-like content beyond a taste in gen chem and ochem.


Sapling Learning Online Homework

I am planning to incorporate Sapling Learning online homework in my Foundations of Inorgnaic Chemistry class and my Advanced Inorganic CHemistry class. I've not used this program before, and am on the steep side of the learning curve. If you have an established course that I can adapt, that would be great. Also, I will be authoring questions as I need. Id love to crowd-source authoring of questions so that I'mnot just relying on my own perspective. Thanks!

Under Assault

Help, I am under assault.  We are reviewing our curriculum in an effort to justify a new tenure-track line.  One of the courses that is getting serious attention (in a bad way) is my first inorganic course.  As far as a P-chem colleague is concerned, it is toast.  I do not want to go down to one inorganic course.  Any support of horror stories from people that have done this would certainly be appreciated.

 Either that or insider info on available positions in departments that value inorganic.
