Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Practices and Policies that Foster Excellence in the First Two Years

Symposium Title: Practices and Policies that Foster Excellence in the First Two Years
Descrption: The first two years of chemistry education involve much more than learning the facts. As described in the "ACS Guidelines and Evaluation Procedures for Bachelor’s Degree Programs" and the "ACS Guidelines for Chemistry in Two-Year College Programs," students need to gain intellectual, experimental, and professional skills, developing the ability to apply knowledge and skills to new situations and transfer knowledge from one context to another. This full day session will explore practices and policies that can advance a chemistry program to the next level of excellence. Presentations and discussions will focus on the programmatic aspects of the curriculum, pedagogical approaches, and the development and assessment of student skills. The importance of faculty development, involvement, and interactions with students will be highlighted. Mechanisms for continuous evaluation and improvement will also be shared.
