POGIL activities can be used to engage students in chemistry lessons through the use of student teams, effective models, and tiered questioning. ChemEd X Talks with Kristen and Stephanie, trained POGIL facilitators. They will provide teachers with guidance on fostering student buy-in, student role formation, and POGIL implementation. Additionally, information will be shared on how to assess students' participation in POGIL activities holistically or through individual examination of process skills such as communication, teamwork, and problem solving.
Please join us in this Zoom presentation (free registration) to learn more about how to connect and integrate Green Chemistry concepts and ideas to the curriculum. Breakout room sessions will center around the use of Green Chemistry concepts/ideas in the GChem classroom and in OChem lab. Open to all faculty from high school through university.
This Zoom presentation (= free registration) will share strategies and resources for communicating the facts about the teaching profession so students have accurate information about career prospects. Can't make it? Feel free to share this information with a colleague (or two).
Collisions is a system of eight digital games, grounded in the rules of chemistry, that can be used to introduce, teach, and review more than 50 key concepts in your chemistry classroom. Collisions makes abstract concepts tangible by allowing students to visualize and manipulate the building blocks of matter, while providing a safe space to make mistakes and learn by introducing content through gameplay. ChemEd X Talks with Jen Lee about how instructors can use these games with their high school and college students.
This free webinar focuses on chemistry's pivotal role in deciphering recent current global events and issues and consumer product labeling. Examples of formative/summative assessment questions also will be presented.

Students today will be mid-career professionals in 2050. What will the world look like? As a truly central science did chemistry play a crucial role in adequately addressing the challenges identified in first quarter of the 21st century? And what lessons were learned from what was taught in chemistry courses about resiliency and how to thrive and live in the midst of the complexity, uncertainty and abrupt changes brought upon by the COVID-19 pandemic?
