BCCE 2018

If you haven’t already, there is still time to register for the 25th Biennial Conference on Chemical Education.  The conference will be held on the campus of the University of Notre Dame July 29 – Aug. 2. Among the many offerings, there will be the Active Learning in Organic symposium with 32 presentations over four sessions.  Many of the speakers attended the previous cCWCS ALOC workshops.  Board members will be presenting workshops on Active Learning in Organic Chemistry: Backward Design, Active Learning in Organic Chemistry: Collaborative Learning and Classroom Assessment Techniques, and OpenOChem Project – Creating interactive chemistry assessments and presentations accessible from most any LMS. There will be an OrganicERs / Active Learning in Organic Chemistry Birds of a Feather lunch Wednesday, 8/1, 12:15-1:45 pm at the Dining Hall South Dining. 

Although the links provide the entire list of symposia and workshops, the following is a list that may be of particular interest to organic chemists and those interested in active learning.
