ChemEd X Professional Learning Community

Friday, July 31, 8:30-11:15 AM ET in SC 214


The Chemical Education Xchange web site is designed to be a collaborative space for high school chemistry teachers and to provide them with high quality resources. We are looking for teachers of all experience levels to take the lead in developing standards based materials to publish on the ChemEd X site. This workshop is designed to provide an overview of the materials already available and develop a community of teachers dedicated to designing materials based upon best practice. Participants should expect to leave with a plan for continued collaborative work with continued support from ChemEd X staff. If you plan to attend, please complete a (free) member registration at ChemEd X so that you can login into the site and fully participate in the workshop. Presenters: Deanna Cullen and Jon Holmes
