S2: cCWCS: Developing Faculty Communities to Transform Undergraduate Teaching and Learning

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Chemistry Collaborations, Workshops and Communities of Scholars program (cCWCS, NSF-TUES Type 3 Project #1022895) offers opportunities for college and university faculty to explore and refine new pedagogies and curriculum material. Topical workshops, which remain a central part of the project, are designed to provide a background of key areas of the chemical sciences along with pedagogical methods to introduce the topics into the undergraduate curriculum. The development of faculty communities through sponsorship of numerous miniworkshops, creation of topical web portals, and reunions, allows for the exchange of ideas, collaboration, and support for improving instruction in chemistry and related disciplines. This symposium will feature workshop alumni and instructors, and leaders of  topical communities. A particular emphasis is on how workshop participants have used workshop materials and follow-up activities to modify their classes, develop entirely new courses and establish new degree programs.
