Resources for Excellence Workshops

While numerous resources exist for supporting excellence in two-year college chemistry education, finding the right resources and strategies to address your particular needs can be challenging. The Resources for Excellence workshops are designed to help faculty meet this challenge.  

Developed by the Society Committee on Education and the ACS Two-Year College Chemistry Consortium (2YC3), Resources for Excellence is a series of interactive workshops that help two-year college chemistry educators find the solutions that work for them.

Participants in Resources for Excellence workshops

  • Develop customized strategies and action plans to address specific challenges at individual two-year colleges
  • Create a network of supportive two-year college colleagues
  • Identify and implement resources to foster excellence in two-year college chemistry education

The Resources for Excellence workshops are facilitated by specially trained two-year college chemistry faculty and are held at conferences across the country. They cost nothing but the registration fee for the meeting.

Upcoming workshops

Teaching with technology…What works and what doesn’t: A Resources for Excellence workshop

210th Two-Year College Chemistry Conference
Windward Community College, Kaneohe, HI
May 22-23, 2015

Whether it be online homework, in-class quizzing, virtual labs or learning management systems, technology has shaped how we are now able to teach chemistry. This session will be a discussion of what works and what doesn’t work and how the ACS Undergraduate Programs Office can help support your decision to use technology in your classroom. Participation by all attendees is encouraged. Bring your stories, your web links and your files to share.
