The Virtual Inorganic Pedagogical Electronic Resource (VIPEr) provides a supportive community and a rich array of teaching resources for inorganic and general chemistry. The resources on VIPEr are available as discrete ‘Learning Objects,’ small pieces of curricular material adaptable to different classroom situations. VIPEr Learning Objects include in-class activities, laboratory experiments, literature discussions, problem set questions, 5-slides about (a mini-lecture format), and web resources. This symposium features examples of the development, adaptation, and implementation of VIPEr Learning Objects, and stories of the role of the VIPEr community in the professional development of faculty at various career stages.
