I am preparing to teach a "blended" chemistry course this fall and I admit that I am a little nervous. Students will be expected to access some of the course material outside of class. It will be very important that students preview materials and complete assignments.

Last full day of BCCE and what a day it was!  Started the day with an amazing plenary speaker, Holly Walter Kerby and her work with Fusion Science Theater.  She talked about the aspects of a good play and how to use that same idea when doing a demonstration.  This engages the learner, helps them focus on the concepts behind the demo, and gives them an active role in the experience.
