The Institute for Chemical Education and the Chemical Education Digital Library: Major Resources for Teaching Chemistry, by Prof John moore, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Description:
The Institute for Chemical Education (ICE) is a longstanding program in the Chemistry Department at UW-Madison. It provides outreach, teaching/learning materials, and collaborations with others on and off campus. Recent developments include the Carbon Playground (jungle gym buckyball, graphene monkey bars, and a carbon nanotube through which children can crawl), and Small Science, Big Decisions, a program that involves the public in discussions about nanoscience and nanotechnology. ChemEd DL, the Chemical Education Digital Library (http://www.chemeddl.org/), is the place to go on the Web for chemical education resources. It includes a broad range of content and services that support teaching and learning. Examples are in interactive periodic table, an extensive collection of molecular structures, an online tutorial on organic stereochemistry, and a collection of resources that is correlated to the curriculum of a typical high school chemistry course. {Will appear in FYI on Mar 27, 2012
