This symposium will provide a forum for discussing the current state of the general chemistry labs at universities in the Big 10 Conference. Topics of discussion, while aimed at large, research-oriented chemistry departments, will be relevant to most any other size chemistry department. This symposium invites presentations that outline any innovative approach to teaching general chemistry labs, whether successful or not. The organizers believe sharing both successes and failures will stimulate discussion and facilitate progress for all involved.

Presider: Joe Keiser, Penn State
