S63: “Message in a Bottle”: How Do We Reach Millennial Students?

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Teaching chemistry can be a daunting task in that one must continually ask themselves the question, “How do you stay current in teaching?”  Almost every educator has – at one time or another – felt that they could have taught a course better, or has tried to find ways to improve on how to involve students in the classroom. This symposium is geared towards any high school or college professor who, with apologies to Sting, has sent out that SOS message and is looking for new ideas and new ways to teach chemistry by using technology, creative lessons, and/or tried-and-true best practices in the classroom.  It is through the sharing of ideas and philosophies on teaching where we, as educators, can increase student learning, increase student retention rates, and attract more students to study chemistry and science.
