Introduction to batteries

Submitted by Abby O'Connor / The College of New Jersey on Thu, 01/07/2021 - 13:56
Description

A little more than 5 slides.... but hey batteries are important! Often there are not good slides available to introduce batteries, broadly, so I went a made them! These slides were also created to accompany the LO on redox flow batteries. This set of slides reviews alkaline batteries introduced in general chemistry and transitions to more modern approaches to batteries including lithium ion batteries and redox flow batteries. This work highlights the 2019 Nobel Prize work for lithium ion batteries.

SLiThEr #6: Facilitating Group Work Online

Submitted by Kyle Grice / DePaul University on Tue, 12/29/2020 - 15:36
Description

This is the 6th SLiThEr (SLiThErs - Supporting Learning with Interactive Teaching: a Hosted, Engaging Roundtable). It was hosted by Dr. Joanne Stewart from Hope College. She discussed how to do effective group work in an online environment. This information is very useful for any class at any level and we highly recommend checking it out. Dr. Stewart also has an LO on effective group work that has been updated for online group work.
