New chemistry education papers

Some hard work coming to completion recently with the publication of two papers in Journal of Chemical Education and an ACS Symposium Series book.

Check out a paper describing an app for chemical equilibria and solubility created by Prof. Arianne Bazilio based on a case study I wrote, an article on assessments based on the primary literature co-authored by Prof. Rebecca Hunter at the College of New Jersey, and a new book Active Learning in the Analytical Chemistry Curriculum co-edited by Prof. Tom Wenzel (Bates College, emeritus) and Prof. Jill Robinson (Indiana University). It has great chapters on why to use active learning and how to get started, plus I am so proud of the chapter on building and design projects that I co-authored with Prof. Liz Díaz-Vázquez and Dr. Bonny Ortiz-Andrade (University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras) and Prof. Muhsinah Morris (Morehouse College).

Congratulations RJ and Sababa!

RJ Chadha and Sababa Anber officially graduated in May 2020. Unfortunately, we are not able to celebrate in person but look forward to a reunion to recognize all their accomplishments as soon as it is safe to do so. Best wishes to both of them!
