From June 12th-14th, chemistry educators from across the country participated in a 2 1/2 day workshop entitled “Using the climate debate to revitalize general chemistry”.  This workshop was planned and facilitated by Drs. Cossey, Lisse, Metzker, Mills and Richards as a part of the NSF-sponsored project, “Chemistry Collaborations, Workshops & Communities of Scholars” Through the course of this workshop, the participants explored using a “big idea” to frame the content and developed learning goals, activities and assessments for their courses. cCWCS-GroupPhoto
