Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Hands-On Workshop on Molecular Modeling: Teaching More Effectively with Modern Simulation Software

Workshop Title: Hands-On Workshop on Molecular Modeling: Teaching More Effectively with Modern Simulation Software
Descrption: Molecular modeling as a teaching tool no longer has to be limited to visualizing and querying static models. Even the most inexpensive of current computers operate at such high speeds that interactive dynamic simulations of extended systems have become a realistic option for general chemistry and other undergraduate chemistry courses. As a consequence, the difficulties can be addressed that many students have in moving beyond single molecule representations to robust mental models of bulk phenomena and intermolecular interactions. The workshop will introduce attendees in a hands-on way to a variety of illuminating computer experiments for teaching laboratories and lecture demonstrations. It will become evident that opportunities for active learning need not be lost by having learners passively watch animations: by using strictly science-based software, we can expose students to the inherent issues that arise in a real laboratory.
