SLiThErs - Supporting Learning with Interactive Teaching: a Hosted, Engaging Roundtable

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.

2023 Content Building Workshop - Morgan State University

Submitted by Chip Nataro / Lafayette College on Tue, 06/27/2023 - 10:56

This is a list of all of the learning objects developed in association with the 2023 content building workshop. Prof. Robert Gilliard was the featured speaker for this workshop, so most of the LOs will focus on his work.

Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory

Submitted by Cody Webb Jr / Hartwick College on Wed, 06/14/2023 - 02:02
Description

Students perform weekly laboratory experiments to explore and apply concepts covered in the lecture
component of the course.

Inorganic Chemistry I

Submitted by Cody Webb Jr / Hartwick College on Wed, 06/14/2023 - 01:57
Description

This course focuses on the chemistry of the elements, including electronic structure, bonding and
molecular structure, ionic solids, coordination compounds, the origins of the elements, and the descriptive
chemistry of the elements. Topics also include inorganic synthesis, materials science, industrial chemistry,
and an introduction to bioinorganic chemistry.

Inorganic Chemistry
Description

CHEM 4310 is an in-depth review of modern inorganic chemistry. Topics will include symmetry, acids and bases, reduction-oxidation reactions, periodic trends, coordination chemistry, organometallic chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, and material chemistry. The course will meet for three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory per week.

Materials Chemistry

Submitted by Deborah Polvani / Washington & Jefferson College on Mon, 06/12/2023 - 09:33
Description

Materials Chemistry will explore many of the fundamental relationships between a material’s chemical structure and the subsequent interesting and useful properties that result.  In order for advances in electronic, magnetic, optical, and other niche applications to be made, an understanding of the structure-property relationship in these materials is crucial.  This course will emphasize inorganic systems, and topics will include descriptions of various modern inorganic solid-s

Advanced Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Deborah Polvani / Washington & Jefferson College on Mon, 06/12/2023 - 09:18
Description

This course will explore many of the fundamental principles of inorganic chemistry, with significant emphasis on group theory, molecular orbital theory, angular overlap theory, coordination chemistry, organometallic chemistry, and bio-inorganic chemistry. Specific topics will vary, but will generally include coverage of atomic structure, simple bonding theory, donor-acceptor chemistry, the crystalline solid state, coordination compounds and isomerism, electronic and infrared spectroscopy applied to inorganic complexes, substitution mechanisms, and catalysis.
