Subject: Safety Symposium and Workshop at the 21st BCCE, Summer 2010

DCHAS folks,

The 21st Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (BCCE) will be in Denton, TX, from August 1-5, 2010.  At this conference I am organizing a symposium on “ Teaching Safety in Chemistry Classes and Programs” and hosting a workshop on “Designing and Implementing Safety Programs Embedded in the Curriculum”.

Please consider submitting an abstract for the symposium.  The description is:

The 2008 ACS CPT Guidelines for Bachelor’s Degree Programs reaffirm that undergraduate chemistry programs must include safety education “as in integral part of the chemistry curriculum” and “throughout their studies students must experience safety procedures and processes.” This symposium will include presentations of how different colleges and universities design and implement these CPT requirements, both in individual courses and in curriculum-wide programs. By sharing successful programs, we can all improve what we do on our home campuses and better educate our students for their future careers as safe scientists.

The deadline for abstract submission is Feburary 12, 2010.
