Active Learning Workshops for Analytical Chemistry Instructors
A grant from the National Science Foundation is supporting a series of workshops that will enable instructors to incorporate active learning exercises into the classroom and/or laboratory of chemistry courses focusing on instrumental or quantitative analytical methods (e.g. quantitative analysis, instrumental analysis, environmental chemistry, forensics). The workshop is an outcome of a curriculum development initiative affiliated with the Analytical Sciences Digital Library (http://www.asdlib.org). Facilitators will work with participants to develop at least one active learning exercise to use in the 2017-18 academic year. Exercises can be chosen from those available on the ASDL site or participants can develop new active learning exercises. Another focus of the workshop will be on the role of faculty in the effective use of active learning exercises. Application deadline for the 2017 workshops is Friday, February 17. Here is more information on the workshops and application procedure.
