I am co-organizing a symposium at the 2020 GCEC conference with Dr. Kendra Denlinger of Xavier University. We'd like to include CHAS division perspectives in this discussion. The call for abstracts is:
Have you recently adopted a new safety education strategy in your classes? Share it by submitting an abstract for the symposium Making your Undergraduate Chemistry Labs Greener and Safer at the 2020 Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference in Seattle, WA!
Abstracts are due February 17th, and the conference is June 16-18.
This session will discuss ways to design and develop curricula that infuse greener chemistry and safer chemistry throughout the chemistry curriculum, especially in the teaching laboratory. These techniques span a broad range, from small projects or short safety moments to new laboratory experiments or entire course offerings. This session will bring together experts in the areas of both green chemistry education and chemical safety education to identify and take advantage of technical and cultural opportunities for greener and safer undergraduate chemistry education. Attendees will learn about emerging strategies and tools to help students in their undergraduate courses understand both green chemistry and chemical safety as fundamental parts of their science education.
Submit your abstract here: https://www.gcande.org/program/
Let me know if you have any questions about this.
