Green Chemistry Education Workshop

The University of Oregon wishes to bring to your attention an NSF-sponsored workshop focused on the practical implementation of green (environmentally-benign) organic chemistry laboratories in the undergraduate chemistry curriculum. The workshop is intended for chemical educators interested in adopting a green organic curriculum at their institution. Over the past five years, we have developed and tested a two-term green organic lab sequence. More information about the curriculum can be found on our web site: http://darkwing.uoregon.edu/~hutchlab/greenchem. The faculty and students who developed our curriculum, together with a panel of experts in green chemical education, will present five days of lectures and participate in hands-on laboratory experiments with workshop participants. Educational materials used in teaching our green organic chemistry lab will be distributed during the workshop. Each participant will be asked to complete a series of follow-up surveys designed to collect information about their experiences adopting green chemistry experiments. If one of your faculty members is interested in participating in the workshop, please have him/her complete the application (available on our website: http://darkwing.uoregon.edu/~hutchlab/greenchem) and return it to us by April 15. All on-site expenses for participants, including food and lodging for the duration of the workshop will be provided. However, it is expected that participants will cover their own travel expenses. If there is sufficient demand, we are considering adding a poster session on advances in green chemistry education. If you or one of your faculty have experience in teaching green chemistry or designing green experiments and are interested in presenting your work during the workshop, please contact Jim Hutchison (hutch@oregon.uoregon.edu) or Ken Doxsee (doxsee@oregon.uoregon.edu). Completed applications may be submitted by email to kristim@darkwing.uoregon.edu, by fax (541) 346-0487 or by regular mail to: Green Chemistry in Education Workshop, Department of Chemistry, 1253 University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403-1253, Attention: Kristi Mikkelsen. If you or your colleagues have any questions about the workshop, please contact us.
