Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Physical and Computational Chemistry in the Undergraduate Curriculum: Applied, Interesting, and Relevant

Symposium Title: Physical and Computational Chemistry in the Undergraduate Curriculum: Applied, Interesting, and Relevant
Descrption: Key aspects of student engagement are student interest and the ability of students to see the applicability and relevance of the material to their immediate world and/or their future careers. This symposium focuses on these aspects of physical and computational chemistry. One session focuses on the use of computational chemistry in undergraduate classrooms and laboratories. Activities range from classroom activities (demonstrations, simulations), stand-alone laboratory experiments, supplements to wet laboratory experiments, an entire course, and in undergraduate research. Presentations at all levels of the undergraduate curriculum are included. A second session explores non-computational physical chemistry lecture instructional material and laboratory experiments that make physical chemistry interesting and relevant to students.
Program: 21st BCCE
Audience: College
Organizer: Craig Teague
CoOrganizers: Roy Jensen
Restrictions: none known, but if computational chemistry workshops are scheduled then it would be best if this symposium did not conflict with those workshops
