ACS Chemistry in the Context Workshop

If you are using Chemistry in Context or planning a new chemistry course to introduce sustainably concepts, this two-day workshop will provide information about how the new 8th edition of Chemistry in Context weaves sustainability through each chapter and how to tie sustainability concepts, questions, and problems into any chemistry course.

  • Revisit how the Chemistry in Context approach to teaching has stood the test of time and why it is relevant to the “big questions” that we and our students face in the world today.
  • Review selections from the text and laboratory manual of the 8th edition which infuse sustainability.
  • Learn about resources and information to seamlessly incorporate sustainability concepts alongside those of chemistry, including those that relate to the laboratory.
  • Examine the new structure of the lab manual.
